Bottle pour at the Rochester Tap Room. I have one bottle of this myself, but I'm not going to open it for a while, so I thought I'd see how it's doing now.
Pours a hazy golden yellow into a champagne glass, with a small, half inch fizzy head. Not a lot of lacing.
Smells like lemon, hay, vinegar, lactic acidity, etc.
The taste is similar. Not as sour as I'd thought, maybe this will pick up some sourness along the way, aging-wise. Mild acidity, with some peach, lemon, hay, slight grassiness. Fairly floral. Slightly watery.
Light bodied, crisp, airy mouthfeel, high carbonation, blocks some of the deeper flavors.
This was ok. It's no LeBleu (I've never tried Brute) but it's good to see Ithaca getting back on this horse again.
