Poured into an E&J Casj & Cream glass on 2/9/12

Thanks to mhewes

Cherry brown with dulled ruby highlights. One thumb of fizzy foam shuffles away in no time with a half peninsula and a tight ring of retention. No lace. Then again, I did work on this for nearly two hours.

Very tangy wheat, toasted grain, dusty yeast, over-ripe and rotting fruit. Right in the glass it smells like a tart mess; this issues is somewhat diminished over time. The best way to describe the taste is to prep up and do your best Tim Taylor. Fluffy wheat, burnt dark grains, dirge-like bitterness in the vein of coffee or dark chocolate. Vinous dark fruit overtones. You know, I took a sip right after I poured it an hour and twenty minutes ago and I thought it was terrible. Now, it's merely not all that good. Amazing what a little time does, eh? Another plus is that the harsh carbonation has died down letting the plump, grainy roll around, begging for it's back to be scratched. Subtle booze.

This one isn't that great. There are enough passable qualities to keep me working through the bottle. The second pour finds a muddy appearance, a more tart nose and a dirty, earthy flavor. I don't have any non-tickables on hand, so I reckon I'll just finish it.
