COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brewers of Anderson Valley had to conjure the High Priestess of Fermentation to help them formulate and create this rare hand-crafted elixer. It is luxuriant, smooth, more that a little wild, and at 10% alcohol, it's bound to raise your spirits. Open the Bottle and greet the High Priestess. You are worthy.

Bottle. Pours slightly cloudy orange to amber with nice white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is wheat, overripe fruits, alcohol, yeast. Flavor is malt, fruits, alcohol. While the alcohol is totally present in both the aroma and the flavor, somehow it fits in the overall impression. Quite nice.

Kveldens nest siste (37 av 38) på rbhd-treffet feb-15: vi er fortsatt ved godt mot, og denne gir et ytterligere løft. Vinøs smak med svisker, rosiner, mandler/marsipan og alkoholsødme. Avrundet, behagelig og smud.
