3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Vine Street - apparently their first attempt at using Orval yeast, and I would say they did a great job - sadly, my glass was extremely murky, almost milky looking, so the high yeastiness may have muddled some of the brighter characteristics of the beer - however, this sucker had some nice complexity, regardless - very dry - loads of spicy and herbal notes (sage, white pepper), moderate citrus (lemon peel, grapefruit) and a light funkiness - would love to try this a year fro now to see if the earthy/funky notes develop more, but even now this is a winner.
