4.47/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a snifter. Bottle reads "Batch 336."

A - Hazy golden brown with decent head retention. It appears to have a high level of carbonation. The legs don't remain on the side of the snifter for terribly long.

S - The fall flavors are all there: cinnamon, clove, chestnuts, nutmeg, and a slight hint of roasted squash (though that could very well just be in my head!). These are tempered by that "horse blanket" smell of wild yeasts: leather, musk, lemon, and slight vinegar. Beautiful nose.

T - Tangy, sweet, and tart. The taste remains balanced despite the incredibly complex flavor profile. The wild yeast give the beer that wonderful farmy array of flavors, but the chestnuts, malt, and spices counterbalance those flavors very, very well. Don't forget to savor the flavor development as the beer warms. The oak influence seems to become more apparent as this brew slowly warms up. An absolute joy to drink.

M - This brew is both refreshing and warming on the palate. The seemingly higher-than-normal carbonation gives the beer a "pop." Incredibly refreshing.

D - Wow. An absolutely stunning beer. Despite the fact that I'm drinking this in April, this will be my session beer of choice come autumn. I would pair this brew with an aged comté, a hearty beef and root vegetable stew, or drink it on its own. I can only imagine how well this brew would age in the cellar!
