Stainless growlette fill from last week. Pours the color of a clear amber maple syrup, one half finger of frothy bone white head that drops off quickly and leaves splotchy lacing in the tulip, tiny bubbles rise to the top.
There is a fruitiness to the nose that is subtle and inviting, this is one that makes you really anticipate the flavor. A touch of malt is present in the aroma, but in a balanced understated way. Give this beauty a little time to warm up, the aroma changes up really nicely, with the orange zest factor becoming more prominent.
Delightful orange and clementine blast on the palate with just enough malt to balance things out. For some reason the flavor reminds me of a gourmet Ben & Jerry's ice cream specialty flavor called Chocolate Cointreau that I enjoyed years ago. Nice long lasting bitterness hangs out on the palate.
Despite the relatively thin body, it delivers great mouthfeel because of the tanginess of the hops that keep your palate happy and busy as the flavors comingle. Dry finish that invites another sip, and another. The most briskly carbonated Societe offering so far, really nicely done.
No surprise Societe earned a Gold medal for Roustabout: masterfully crafted, and different enough to be distinctive. Orangey, earthy and creamy all at once,this growlette went down nice and easy. Grab Roustabout if you can, you will be very happy that you did.
