Noble rot has a thin white head that lacks in both retention and lacing, and a hazy, yellow body.
The aroma is super fruity, which comes in part from yeast, but mostly from grapes.
Noble Rot really tastes like a white wine. Up front there is just a bit of bread from the malt, and the yeast expresses itself as well, with a dry, pepper flavor to it. Those flavors are quickly overpowered by the flavor of white grapes. The grape flavor brings other fruit flavors with it, as well as an earthy flavor. The finish has a noticeable bite of tartness that is quite nice.
A little tart in the end. The body is fuller than I would expect, but it works well.
Noble Rot basically tastes like a sour white wine. Although I did enjoy my one glass of this one, I'm not a huge white wine fan and will probably steer clear of this in future. With that said, this is certainly an interesting and well-made beer that hides its relatively high ABV quite well.
