Bottle at Peter’s 2nd annual spring gathering. Pours a murky brown with a thin beige head. Woody malt, sour notes, fruit up front. Nice and crisp, good malt with some caramel tones to it. Tart and tasty and full of long tannins. Long wood fueled acids on the finish. Rather tasty. Definitely looking forward to the bottle I managed to get.
