A: Pours a clear gold with a thin, quickly receding white mousse.
S: Aromas of wheat toast, vanilla creme, roasted grain, pepper, apple cider, and cilantro fill the nose.
T: Sweet notes of Fuji apples, vanilla, wheat bread, and roasted farro fill the mouth on the entry, while hints of grass, orange rind, and lemon linger in the background. At mid-palate, the cilantro and cayenne pepper notes make their presence known, providing a mellow swell of herb and spice flavors. The finish is simultaneously sweet and spicy with a combination of wheat bread, roasted farro, and Fuji apples mingling with cayenne, cilantro, and a not entirely unwelcome touch of warming alcohol.
M: Neither light nor medium in body. In the mouth, this ale is very, very dry with airy, delicate carbonation. Alcohol is noticeable, but restrained.
O: A super unique imperial witbier with a superb layering of flavors. Very much worth checking out.
Serving type: bottle
