From the 750 ml. bottle. Batch 22, Bottled 04-05-013.

Amber chestnut pour with long lasting off-white head. A tad of cloudiness.

Too many beers tonight so this becomes kind of routine. Subtle aroma with moderate malts. Overripe fruitiness. Grapes too.

Light to medium body.

This has a definitive hoppy bite to it. Vague caramel notes but that is not the best descriptor. Sour grapes overall. Drinkable enough but not something I would have regularly.

Muddy brown with a lip of greasy off-white foam.

Mild chocolate notes, perfumey tones, and an interesting nuttiness. Hazelnut, maybe. Very mild tartness. Yeastiness is present.

Singing with farmhouse yeast notes, but with a unique element of Belgian chocolate and hazelnut. Tartness promotes light acetic notes and tannic fruit skins, not entirely unlike apricot skins. Mild hop character is nice. Great flavors and complexity.

Easy and crisp. Has a musty quality that affirms that the body is solid. Likable.
