Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor is spicy and minerally with an off-flavor of raw meat or broth or stock. Finishes spicy, minerally and dry.

750 cc from Wine Seller Willaimsburg. Pours clear deep copper with 1-finger creamy, off-white head. Nose is tart fruit, hops, malt, some diacetyls. Tastes very tart fruity, funky, with hops, and a lot of lactose and diacetyls. This one was flawed, and I will try it again and re-rate. jercraigs (10886) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
