Pours a hazy golden with large, bubbly head that is persistent. Prominent wine/champagne aroma with sweetness upfront with tart downturn and a touch of bitterness. Perhaps a touch of oak. Moderate mouthfeel and soft, effervescent carbonation.

Pours a pale honey gold with a milky, dense few fingers of head... perfect retention and healthy abundant beading.
The nose is pretty imposing - ripe figs, white grapes, soft woods, faint cherry, lilac, boozy honey, delicious.
Translates quite nicely onto the tongue. Big white grape notes, some vinegar-y booze that doesn’t dominate, light fruits, floral bits. I can’t even begin to dissect the flavors without considering the PERFECT mouthfeel. I can’t stress this enough. All these flavors occupy the best consistency I’ve ever encountered in the style. It makes for such a lovely beer to drink.
Extremely well done.
