3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Holy Grale.
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly to moderately yeasty (barnyard, cobwebs), with notes of lemon/lime zest, band aid, oak.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Quite nice...reminds me of Russian River Temptation and Sanctification...elegant blend of sour ale and saison sort of characters, nice yeast, nice tartness. It stopped just short of 4+ excitement for me, but this is very tasty stuff.

750 ML bottle
Believe a 2012 Vintage
Gusher. Lost a 1/4 of bottle in opening
Hazy straw yellow color, big billowy white head. Thick soap like lacing and good retention on the head.
Nose was very dry. Grain, hay, lemon, zest, oak, and touches of white wine.
Taste was dry as well. Lots of hay and straw with a good amount of lemon and citrus. Once the beer opened up it got much more citrus and honey based.
Dry as heck. Not funky at all. Liked it once half way through this. Confounding style

Grumsete lyst ferskenfarget med massivt skum som varer lenge. Lukter hřy, syrlige epler og litt eddik. Smaker grřnt eple og champagne med en litt metallisk ettersmak. God kullsyre som plutselig blir borte.
