look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
2005 vintage served from a 750ml bottle into a tall wiesen glass.
Appearance: Pours a deep ruby bronze hue with a two finger head that died down to a half inch layer within a few minutes. Slightly cloudy with a medium amount of beading.
Smell: A waft of sour tartness is observed along with a rose like malty sweetness. Bready and floral notes are all mixed into the aroma, different but nice.
Taste: The flavor reminds me of a sour cherry mead with an almost sharp alcohol bite. It has a fresh homeade banana nut bread taste, but without the bananas. Not bad at all.
Mouthfeel: Medium to high carbonation with a medium body. A smoothness flows throughout with a bubblely finish. Almost has a spritzy mouthfeel but it may have lost this character with age.
Drinkability: This is a good beer in my own opinion.It's not on my tops list, but it is well worth a try. Top to bottom.
Serving type: bottle
