Corked & caged 750ml poured into my Hair of the Dog tulip...

A: Pretty clear golden straw with a bright white head that doesn't quite stick around...some lacing on the glass.

S: Phenolic and fruity...light peppery sensations and crisp sweet maltiness. Suggestions of grape bubble gum and honey.

T: Follows the nose, on the fruitier side rather than funky, but there is also some earthy husk essence in the malty backbone. Hints of honeysuckle. Peppery and phenolic...a bit of earthy hop leaves a touch of bitterness on the finish.

S: Medium body with a drying finish via some alcohol esters and a light touch of heat.

O: Pretty good, not quite run-of-the-mill in its flavor profile but not my cup of tea either.
