The beer pops loud with a strong head rush. The bartender had to rush it to the glass. The beer looks beautiful with a thick hazy golden color and obviously a thick head. The beer is very loud. The aroma hits me with brett (plenty of haystack and barnyard). There is a nice honey aspect behind that. The combo of the two make me think they will keep aging nicely. Its similar in the flavor. The mouthfeel is very spritz-y, bubbling and tickling the tongue and cheeks. I want to try this in 3-5 years.
750mL bottle @ the Ginger Man, date 2008 stamped on the back (I am guessing BB), served in a large wine glass.

Price: $34.00 Served In: Wine Glass

A: Not real champagne method…they didn’t freeze the bottle then extract the sediment at the top. There is a lot of sediment in this beer and its doing backflips in the glass due to the carbonation. And did I mention it was carbonated? CHRIST. The foam WILL NOT STOP pushing out of the bottle. I had to pour it into an extra glass to stop it! Color is a clean tawny (excluding the massive sediment) with a fizzy snow white head.

S: Caramel covered apples, yellow pear, limestone and quince.

T: Starts with a little band aid at the front of the tongue. Pear and apple is strong with aspects of clover honey, banana and honeysuckle. Watery carmel comes right before the swallow. After the swallow, get some corn pops, lots of pear and some basic mineral components. Tastes like there might be some grape juice in here too. Maybe some Muscat or Riesling. Finishes with a hint of vanilla, paper mache paste and a whole lot of alcohol. They recommend drinking it between 35-39 degrees F, but I think that’s too cold. A lot more flavor is coming out as it warms. Then again, it’s a 750ml of 11.5% alcohol, so unless you are sharing it between 4 people its bound to warm up a bit. As it warms, I get a lot more caramel and brown sugar flavors.

M: Medium body, sort of fuzzy from the carbonation.

D: I don’t mind sediment but its unattractive in this beer. It ruins the “champagne style” and should have been dealt with. Big swing and a miss there. But the flavor is nice and I appreciate the attempt.
