Poured into my DFH snifter...

A. Pale gold, foggy, bountiful three finger head, very thick lacing, pillowy foam.

S. Grape skin, yeast, apple, honeysuckle, wine, sage.

T. Honey, white wine, apricot, grass, cracked pepper.

M. Bone dry, well-carbed, sweet on the edge of the palate but with a cutting, herbal, bitter, dry finish.

O. A very nice beer with an out of balance mouthfeel. Finish is extremely yeasty and dry, to the detriment of all the other pleasant qualities the brew presents. Even so, it glows with craftsmanship. This was made with love and the quality of the ingredients is notable in the flavor profile, which is complex and enjoyable. It's just too bad the finish is so over the top in its dryness and bitterness.
