A - Apple juice with an off white head. No sediment in the bottle and it was quite clear in the glass.
S - Malty sweet, easy on the hops and bitterness.
T - Malty,raisins??, mild hop and an almost fruity note. Even though the bottle says 11 % ABV, it does not come through in the taste.
M - Light carbonation lets the malty sweetness linger with a very mild hop finish.
D - Yes, quite so. They should make plenty more of this.
A third of this was barrel aged (half wine and half rye) and I am guessing that is where the fruity and raisin taste is coming from. Quite nice for the malt and hop balance in this one. Picked this up at Whole Foods so I may have to go back and grab a couple more bottles.
UPDATE- Read some other reviews and something is off. Seems that some people got the cloudy with and without the yeast - mine was clear with nothing remaining in the bottle at all???
