joet (2607) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Pale golden/apricot color slightly hazy with fine white foam. High effervescence, spritzy. Mild astringency. Beautiful aroma hay, citrus fruit oranges and touch of grapefruit - medium full. Acidic and sharp on the tongue, lightly sour. Mild white vinous notes. Second pour, buoyed yeast bodies, large. More barnyard aromas emerging as it warms, 51 degrees. Admittedly off-put by the dreadlock chunk of yeast that broke free from the bottom and moved into the glass, this beer is now becoming more and very charming. Citrus tang with a touch of phenol, clove, becoming more apparent as it warms 54 degrees. In a bright and good direction.
