3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz bottle
Thanks to Markus for sending this. It was a great example of the wit style. While I don’t go out of my way to chase Rare it makes me want to schedule a trip to Europe so I can try more like it. There’s only so many quads, imperial stouts, and other huge styles my palate can take in a day.
Aroma / Appearance - The cloudy golden body was beautiful to look at. The carbonation was very active like a sparkling champagne. The head takes a few minutes to settle down to a point that is drinkable. Orange zest, yeast, and lemon provide a dry texture to the air.
Flavor / Palate - The bubbly mouthfeel is very bright and active. It actually tastes a bit like orange soda water with a dash of lemon. Light and pleasant this is the sort of beer you can drink a few of without wearing down the palate too much. Once again thanks to Markus.
