Tap @ Mekong Richmond - pours clear pale yellow, tiny bubbles. Aroma is oaky vanilla with tart apple notes. Really bright taste with some nice minerality, tart taste, very dry on the initial attack, but that mellows out on the finish. Very nice!

Served on draft at Whole Foods Charlottesville. Pours a clear golden color with a thin ring of head. Aroma of tart apples, vanilla, tannins and faint brandy notes. The taste is tart apples, wood, earth, faint brandy. "Zesty" is in my notes. Faint heat. A little harsh at first but quite nice once it breathes a bit.
