Into a chalice, pours a darker-than-straw golden with hardly any head to speak of. Nothing groundbreaking here.
Nose is a big improvement with all those great funky horseblanket/Camembert aromas I love in a gueuze.
Big rush of quinine and bitter lime peel dominate until being supplanted by a hint of sherry vinegar. Aftertaste is a slightly metallic slant on tarragon. Exactly why I love this style.
Somewhat listless although the appearance warned me of this. Definitely a sipper; the person I went out with took a sip and quipped, "I'd need to pair this with food." I feel exactly the opposite, as this shares everything in common with great Italian aperitifs. It whets your appetite, makes your stomach rumbles and gets your taste buds salivating. Enjoyed at the Long Room.
Serving type: on-tap
