Big 'ol 750 given to me by ddarden. Thanks a bunch!
Drinking this one in small quantities from a wine tasting glass from Chateau Morrissette (PLUG!) in Virginia. Judging by first impression, a champagne flute might be better!
It looks sort of like a not-so-pale BMC in the glass. the head is nice and white, rather fluffy, and very active. Nice looking, but I think I stirred up some yeasty bits on my pour.
The smell is yeasty and spicy- sort of what one might expect from a good hefe.
The flavour is hearty and a little sweet, yet woody and a little bitte rin the middle. There's a weird (but VERY pleasing) aftertaste that's sort of like the sauce for the malai kofta at my local Indian restaurant. Very interesting and complex!
Crbonation is there, but not overpowering...liquid is hearty, but not thick. (Though maybe a touch oily.)
I think it's very drinkable. Goes down easy, is rather complex. I'd have more!
