4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2012 Tap @ Hopworks Bike Bar... Poured cloudy, pastal, muted yellow with a thin, bubbly, white head. Raspberry syrup on the side. Nose had cracker and wheat malts. Acidity not totally evident in the aroma. Flavor wise, the acidity and mild tartness came through up front, with floral, grassy, cracker-biscuity malts towards the finish. Also hints of sweetness and vanilla. Like usual, the raspberry syrup accentuated the tartness and cut the bready, cracker-like malts, adding lots of fruit sweetness. This was impeccable. Not too cracker-like, and not too sour. Spot on.
