Thanks, Brian! Pouring a clear copper with a dense, off-white head with excellent retention and nice lacing, this looks great. The nose is surprisingly subdued but leans on a blend of funk and grass with some white wine incorporated in there. Not as buttery as some of the other Chardonnay barrel-aged butter bombs I’ve had. Mildly sulfury, moderately grainy and with a pleasant spice character; a blend of clove and a little plastic with some white pepper. Dried lemon peel, a moderate lactic acid bite and a faint barnyard note are present. Nice stuff. The palate opens bright, tart, clean and refreshing with a blend of yogurt, lemon peel and a bit of clove. This is followed by a juicy mid-palate showcasing a blend of honey, white wine and fruit (apricots and melons). Maybe some juniper too? Drying, snappy and crisp of the finish with a really refreshing blend of yogurt, cleansing lactic acid and brightening citrus, this beer is light in body, crisply carbonated and a treat on the palate. Highly recommended.
