750 mL bottle, big thanks to nimbleprop for sharing this one! Hazy purple/almond colored pour, small fizzy head. Nose and flavor bring beautiful unripe stonefruit with plum, hints of dry roast, caramel and molasses, touches of cherry pit. Medium attenuation, good tartness but not acetic at all. Yummy.

Bottle received in trade. Thank you lionsandbeer! Pours tiny hazy golden with a frothy offwhite head that leaves lots of sticky lacing and trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny sour and fruity with dark bread, ripe plums, raisins, hay, lemon juice, yoghurt and moist hay. Taste is slightly sour, tiny malty and fruity with dark bread, ripe plums, ripe grapes, moist wood, moist hay, lemon juice, lemon zest and hint of St. John’s wort. Mouthfeel is slightly dry, slightly tart, tiny watery and light bodied. Finish is slightly sour and fruity with dark bread, ripe plums, lemon juice, dark grapes, moist wood and moist hay. Drinkable but nothing fancy...

Fruits of the foeder @ Alex
Deep golden with a medium head.
Spicy, peppery and citric aroma.
Sour and fresh flavour. A bit fruity. A bit too light body.
