Beautiful light golden appearance. The light white head fades a bit, letting the beer have your attention. Aromatic and fruity nose. Sawdust-like dry yeast helps to bring out the vinous character from the barrels, feels almost cidery with those apples undertones. Fruits are plentiful in there, grapey, pineapple.. Very classy nose. Pretty accessible palate as well. Sandy dryness all around is enhanced toward the finish. White wine flashes are a constant. Wildish, dusty and woody, tannins are held at a minimum, so is the tartness, mild and diplomatic. Medium-full bodied, very active carbonation, expansive and biting. It feels like scene master’s crowning achievement in having everything well displayed. As unique as it is, it makes for a nice play, but one that will never contend being the best of your life.
