Enjoyed at J&J’s Fri. the 13th. A peachy-amber color with light carbonation. Solid ring and lace and chunks suspended in the glass. Nose was a mixture of bread and sourness. Taste was cream, yeast, pineapple, citrus and blood(seriously). Yeasty finish.

Bottle sampled at the J&J Friday the 13th Tasting at WeeHeavySD’s place. Thanks Jon for a kickass tasting. Yellow color with a deep golden center and thick, developing head. Aroma is an appetizing mix of freshly baked bread and sweet almond cake with lemon. Nice diacetyl tones in the flavor with nuances of butterscotch, orange citrus and light hops. Easy finish with good carbonation. Really tasty!

750mL bottle from WeeHeavySD tasted at J&J’s Friday the 13th tasting. Thick creamy off-white head. Cloudy yellow color. Some buttery sweetness as if a little bit of barrel aging. Very easy to drink.
