_angst_ (3546) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2015
Draught @ CBC 2015. Pours tiny hazy pale golden with a frothy white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity estery and tiny spicy phenolic with crackers, pears, white grapes, hay, dry soil, white pepper corns, dry wood and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, fruity and tiny spicy. Mouthfeel is sparkling, round, tiny tart and light to medium bodied. Finish is sweet and tiny sour with crackers, pears, white grapes, hay, dry soil, minerals and lemon zest. Bit too sweet and grape soda-like. Can’t say I detect much brett. Too young perhaps considering the sweetness...
