Poured on tap into a 20oz glass during a beer tasting with Jim Koch at Bell in Hand. This had to have come from the Jamaica Plain brewery...it was beyond fresh.
Poured yellow with orange low-lights and hazy. Big fluffy head. Nose was full of spices--citrus, coriander, pepper, cloves, wildflowers--delightful. Taste was full of the same spices and more, was somewhat creamy and the malt was mellowed nicely by the wheat. Mouthfeel was medium carbonation and the citrus and spices made it play nicely on the tongue while finishing clean.
I've had this in the past, but never straight from the brewery. This was fantastic. Big, big surprise. Always been a fan of the brew, but this was otherworldly.
Serving type: on-tap
