On-tap and in a snifter glass. Elegant pour yields a receding inch of head. An antiquated amber-orange color with some kind of mystique. No lacing to speak of, as of yet.
Boozy, sour cherry in the far distance, clover honey... very pale, some juicy mandarin, a little bit of soured white wine and a whole lot of clove/banana Belgian yeast character.
Honey in the front, tart cherry/berry in the middle-end, and spicy yeast and alcohol strength on the finish. Estery in a muddled sort of way. Very hot. Lively and a little woody. A sureshot sipper.
A bit thick and raisiny. Sticky and coating. Low carbonation leaves a syrupy mouthfeel, moreso than the beer is actually that thick. A holiday warmer.
A classic, especially out here in PA. Got more at home in the cellar.
Serving type: on-tap
