Labeled Batch 1, bottled 3/31/16. Clear golden pour with head reducing to fine lacing. Beautiful aromas of white grape, lemon zest, honeysuckle and vinegar. Flavors are a little less developed but still very nice. Light malt backbone highlighted by sweet grape, stone fruits, lemon zest, grass, earth and vinegar. The finish ends with bready malt and drying oak tannins. The sweetness is well balanced by the moderate acidity. Full prickly carbonation. A great beer from Societe. Flavorful, easy drinking and well balanced.
