750ml split with my with on our 12th wedding anniversary
A - pours a golden honey with suspended chunks of sediment. Thin micro bubble cap of bright white bubbles.
S - lactic chessy aroma, bright lemon citrus, green apples, fruit salad, old wooden church pews.
T - zesty citrus with sesame seeds and wheat cracker malts, there's a dominate peppery spice going on, a citrus tartness envelops but doesn't take over the sesame seed cracker base. Fruit stays strong but the citrus is the main player. The funk comes in the form of an odd spice that I can't put my finger on. Finishes spicy and semi dry.
M - solid foamy carbonation that is lively but not overbearing. Thin to medium body, crisp and dryish on the finish.
A different rake on the style. Bright fruits (mainly citrus) really lightens things up. Not quite sour but plenty of tartness to combat the sweet. Funk is minimal but the odd sesame seed spice really throws a twist on things. Not sure if it's the combination of yeast and the 8% abv or if I can't nail down an ingrediant. I enjoyed exploring this beer.
