12oz brown bottle with twist-off cap and bottled on "04/23/2014". Poured into a snifter.

-6 month notes

Appearance: Pours a clear pale golden with a thin ring of head

Smell: Yeast esters and grapes

Taste: Yeast up front with a lot of fruity esters which then develops with some malt and biscuit and spice from the rye in the middle and finishes dry

Mouthfeel: Medium but bubbly like champagne

Overall: Compared to the initial release, the yeast has taken the front seat in the flavor and has a nice dry finish. The hop presence has subsided and the rye and malt are coming in more. Pair this with any dish you'd pair with white wine.

Once again, a huge Thank You to Kurmaraja for this one! Poured into long stemmed-wine glass. Poured the expected, yet still gorgeous, honey-gold color frequent to the style. There was 1/8-ish inch of white head that quickly dissipated into a thin ring, which then had very good retention, but no lacing at all.

Malty sweetness hit the nose first, sticks around the longest, and is the dominant olfactory aspect. There is a noticeable yeast aroma, as expected, and this beer's scent reminded me more of a Tripel (not that there's a huge difference between the styles). On the tongue, the story was about the same. There was a slight bitterness at the very back of the palate, that was different, but not unpleasant. The yeast and malt were the major players on the flavor scale.

The body was, perhaps, a bit fuller and stickier than is typical, but not to a point of distraction. Drinkability was very good, as I find the style to be in general, but not so easy to drink that you would pound several. Overall, a very good take on the style, and one you should certainly try.
