Sampled at FCB and took a growler home. Pours a crystal clear amber color with a more coppery shine to it. A soft white head with ok retention and limited lacing through the tasting
The nose is malt dominate. Not really a wheat malt aroma but more of a caramel and munich aroma. Noticeable fusel and alcohol notes with a light butyric aroma that mixes oddly. Some noticeable esters with a grape and plum note. Some minor spice notes but not over the top.
The taste is similar. The malt comes out with a stronger caramel, kettle taste to it. Big fusel notes that could benefit with age. Some noticeable DMS and a light butyric note. There are some earthy hop notes on the back end but limited bitterness leaves a sweet taste. Some minor vanilla/woody notes.
The body is moderate. Would have expected a bigger mouthfeel. Carbonation is low and brings out a more sweeter flavor. The heat is a bit of a deterrent. Overall, time could benefit this beer.
