22 fl. oz. bottle at refrigerator temperature poured into a small cognac snifter. The Mountain Goats' "Tallahassee" is playing.
A - Bright golden orange body with a modest head comprised of all different sized bubbles.
S - Belgian candied sugar, stone fruit, various spices (coriander, white pepper, ginger), slight herbal/grassy notes, sweet orange, sweet bread.
T - Bright, sweet, and fruity with a long finish. The orange and spice flavors stand out most prominently at first, and the finish is marked by sweet, yeasty flavors tinged with herbs (sage and basil).
M - You wouldn't think it by looking at it, but this brew has a pretty effervescent mouthfeel. It pops and zings on my palate with each sip.
D - A very well-crafted brew. It has just the right amount of fruity, spicy, herbal complexity. I'd pair this with a creamy, slightly bitter cow's milk cheese with a lightly washed-rind or with a fried egg for breakfast. Seriously.
