2014 Bottle poured into a BJ's Grand Cru glass

A: Pours slightly hazy golden amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a thin layer and leaves some light lacing.

S: Tart, lemon, fruity notes, a touch of spice, biscuity malt, and a little vanilla on the back side.

T: Lactic tartness, lemon, some fruity notes, green apple, apricot, and pear, biscuity malt, and some vanilla coming out towards the back end.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Vanilla brings an interesting dimension, but I'm not crazy about it. Might have tasted better when fresh.

Slightly hazy bright yellow, just a bit of white head. Aroma has lactic tartness, vanilla and some herbal tea. Taste starts tart and acidic but then comes the vanilla sweetness, lots of floral flavors and lemon. Light, acidic body. Really nice one, complex and tasty.

750ml bottle into tulip. Bottled 11/6/14.

A: Pours a deep lemon/light orange color with a couple fingers of dense bright white foam that faded into a fuzzy collar leaving wispy streaks of lace down the glass.
S: Very soft and delicate nose full of musty and creamy scents of oak barrel and vanilla. The creamy vanilla smells like custard or crème brulee. I get a just a faint kiss of lemon and basically no tartness.
T: Lemon comes through stronger than the nose, but it is still a sweet and delicate lemony flavor as opposed to an overly tart and acidic blast of lemon juice. The creamy flavors and vanilla are just as strong as the nose and still remind me of vanilla pudding, crème brulee, or custard. There is a subtle musty damp-wood quality throughout the flavor profile. The finish has a blast of tart acid, but the edges are polished and the tartness dissipates quickly. In other words, this beer is not as bright and harsh as I imagine it once might have been as the acid is smooth and easy to drink. The aftertaste is creamy and short-lived.
M: Medium body with a chewy and soft mouthfeel. The acidity is short-lived, and the finish is drying. Carbonation is soft and easy.
O: Very enjoyable and full of creamy vanilla flavors with a kiss of acidic lemon juice. At times, this was reminiscent of limoncello, albeit not as potently flavored. I never had this fresh, but it’s drinking well right now.

Pale straw color....half an inch of head that quickly disapated into a ring

Bright lemon, smells like a citrus grove with a bit of funk

tastes like a lemon meringue tart....just the right amount of tartness.

Moderate carbonation with a refreshing acidity.
