3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at White Labs. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a small white ring and plenty of effervescent bubbles rising up the side of the glass. Aromas are of acetaldehyde, apple and pear in general as well. Peppery, spicy, lighter phenol, smells a touch sweet. Flavors are dry, with good ester balance and complementary phenol. Pear drops. Dry, a bit more bitter than some of the others. Medium bubbles, pretty dry. Compared to 565 its a bit flatter and missing complexity that is nice with the Dupont strain.
