A- Dark golden pour with an incredible lacing. The carbonation resembles champagne with their small, uniform, and consistent bubbles.
S- I get earthy, grassy, and resiny. Slight citrus and floral qualities could be perceived.
T-Very dry and very clean drinking beer. There is certainly a spicy and earthy flavor. The finish is bitter but not overwhelming. IBUs???
M- Light bodied. Bready.
O- I love it, but for the same price I'd opt for a PtE. Overall, a great example of the style. I'd like a full keg...
