4.3/5 rDev -2.1%
750ml bottled on November 23rd 2012. Served in a Russian River stemmed glass
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden blonde color with 1 finger head which dissipated quickly to a white collar.
Smell: Musty, lemon, funk, wood, white grape, with just a tiny hint of fruity sweetness.
Taste: Medium tartness upfront is countered nicely with a slight white grape sweetness. I'm also getting, some funk, lemon acidity, oak, green apple, and some lactic character. The grapes are much more noticeable on the palate than in the aroma.
Mouthfeel: Light, crisp and refreshing. Medium carbonation. Sourness isn't intense or mouth puckering. Highly drinkable
Overall: I got this at the same time as a bottle of the Saint Lamvinus. I had very high expectations for the St. Lam, and while both were great, I actually ended up liking this a bit better. If you're a fan of the style, this is definitely worth seeking out.
