Poured on tap at Churchkey into a Becher glass.

Great copper brown body, brassy glowing and bright if as well dark too interestingly. Thin tan head, half finger presented with a real creamy top, extremely tiny bubbles nearly nitro looking if not cask like with sheets of creamy lacing going to down in rings to coat.

Classic dry nut notes, but incredibly mineral sensing, rocky, and super friggin dry. Warmth and time give off some real interesting aromas. Steely banana like esters, and licorice thick root, with a real extreme tannic nut quality.

Palate is extremely bright on first sip. Intensely dry, cottonmouth like palate on first sip and a bit intense. The malt action lightness nicely and there's almost a crisp pils like snap to the beer. Huge mineral, rocky, earth tones in the palate extremely unexpected. Real powerful carbonation, like hot Perrier feeling. Aftertaste brings some interesting banana esters that were hinted at the nose.

Really fascinating altbier, nothing unlike any beer I've ever had. It's a bit jarring but gets better after some time, considerably more so. Still not my favorite alt but very memorable and would have it again for sure.
