Poured from a single-serve bottle into a tulip...

Pours a deep translucent brown with little head, but excellent lacing.

The aromas are initially muted, but there is more going on that first meets the nose. Green apple and raisin both show up in equal measure, with lemon citrus in the background. Just wish there was more of it.

The palate is blessed with more than the nose, as the brew opens up as it warms and washes over the tongue, with a simple but balanced mixture of initial tart acidity, followed by a spiced raisin cake sweetness on the back of the tongue, and plenty of grainy texture for good measure.

The mouthfeel is outstanding. Light, crisp, and dry at the finish. Eminently drinkable.

Overall, this is a fine representation of the style.

Nice vinous complexity with red berries, good tartness, this beer is balanced all along, some grain too. The taste is quite sweet which balances the whole thing but it's a bit much from time to time in the session
