(purchased at State Line - poured into a Chouffe tulip)

L: hazy, yellow-amber liquid... 1/2 cm of white foam holds briefly after pour... no sediment in the bottle... no freshness indication on the label - suspect condition

S: yogurt, mild sweet smoke, mild whiff of proofing dough... almost a touch of dried yeast on the edges

T: bit of phenolic smoke... arguably more dominant are the other flavors: lemon zest, fresh grass (mellow), subtle acidic tang... pleasant tartness - not too much - while some bready/crackery flavors flicker as it flows back... i suppose one can taste the undercurrent of alcohol buried in the finish

F: feels almost medium-bodied up front, flooding the palate, however, drops off rather quickly, soft and quiet, with only subtle fizz and a lightly oily-sticky residue left behind... not all that filling

O: not all that bad - pretty tasty, actually - although I wonder how much the smoke and bitterness may have fallen off since bottling... based on what I had here, I'd certainly grab a bottle of this again... I can see this going well with raw shellfish
