Pours a clear bright amber orange with a lovely, thick and firm white head, that unfortunately fades a bit quickly.

Nose is full assertive esters of banana and cooked stone fruit.

Mouthfeel is very creamy and rich with very light carbonation. In fact, feels almost like a "beer cream."

Flavor profile is bold and assertive rich biscuit and cracker yeast; undertones of fresh white bread but with a rich almost sweet rice undertone. Beer is actually luscious in the mouth with a rich elegance to the flavors. Hints of spice, whiskey and heavily creamed rich honey come to mind.

Finish is cooked honey and fruit with a hint of dry bitterness. This one is really quite complex and very nice all around. The bottle speaks of the beer "blurring the line between beer and wine." Actually a pretty good description.

Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours from a foil capped 750 ml bottle a clear yellowish with a solid 1-finger thick effervescent white head which leaves semi-rings and splotches.

N: White grape skins and some must, yeast, floral and hay/grass.

T: Fruity esters, grassy, some mild spicy pepper, faintly musty/mold.

M: Moderate body and semi-full carbonation. Finishes champange-like dry with zesty yeast and pepper.

O: A hybrid experimental with slightly too much pepper for me. 1 is enough.
