Best after 12/16/14; couldn't wait
Pours an effervescent amber with 2 fingers of pearl white head. Stays effervescent, perfect lacing & head retention
S: Pineapple, tartness, sourness. pears & jammyness, plus sourness
T: Slight sourness, pears, red grapes, a touch of Chardonay & then pineapple & pink grapefruit up front. I catch some of that Muscat sweetness as this warms, pears, dryness & pleasing tartness & leafy hops. Finishes super dry, a touch of concord grape & finally a little booze
MF: Medium body & crisp carbonation, terrific balance, warming at a point or two, never hot
I need to go buy a bottle or 2 & age this; terrific now, would love to see where this goes. So damn drinkable for the ABV. Didn't expect to love it so much & if I had known I would have bought way more!
Serving type: bottle
