3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from CBX. Hazy dull gold pour with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is fresh flowers, dried citrus peels, yeasty phenols and esters, dirty earth, hints of funk and light pale grains. Sweeter on the entry than expected with more of the ester characteristics from the yeast fading into citrus then lots of clove and white peppercorn spice drying out the back end. moderate carbonation and smooth body. Pretty solid.
