3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Batch 901, Bottled October 19, 2011.
Appearance: The body is a hazy light amber with a tall white head that dissipates rather quickly to a dense white coating with a tall ring.
Aroma: Slight Autumn spices of cinnamon and clove with a light fruity tartness I can’t put my finger on, cherries? Hints of red wine vinegar too. This smells great.
Taste: Mildly tart with a small hint of vinegar, but it quickly picks up on a dry nutty and cinnamon/nutmeg finish that abruptly stops. Sort of a potpourri finish.
Palate: Light bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: I wonder if this has gotten more tart with age or lost it, I also wonder if the body was more beefy fresh. This drinks nicely now, though I wish I’d saved it for a nice Autumn night.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very cloudy pour with an average sort of head that lasts and leaves a nice little lace. Spice jumps out on the nose with a nutty sort of edge. There’s a definite lactic note there as well, and a real lemony quality. All the same notes come out on the palate in much the same way. Very interesting and lightly sour.
