My first unbudgable cork in a long while, needed a pliers to get it twisted, once the twist was established, the cork popped out with ease. Lovely golden hued pour, settles more bronzed in body and slightly clouded with yeast and steady carbonation bubbles within. Firm and tight merange fluffed biege head just over a finger high, good lacing in big strings.

Aroma is quite nice with a pleasing array of fruits and yeasty sour bread sweetness. Banana, pineapple, and pear esters, spicy overlay of hops and yeast bring out wood and white pepper notes. Really strong and fun to partake when first poured, it loses some zip as it warms.

Taste is fruity and spicy, laden with a hop leaf backing thats not bittering, more spicy than anything, mixing in a balanced tone of spices that are brought in from the yeast. It starts out fruity with a good mild medley of tropical and citrusy things(mostly orange and lemon), but quickly turns to the spices and a alcoholic warmth pumps up the volume along the way down.

Feel is about medium with a solid warmth and spice, with a complex finish of spice and hops with an even later left over of fruits and malts where it was once dry it begins anew with a light stickyness.

A very nice drinker to behold, or even more so, a sipper, as the warming of the alcohol and spice has a bit of an edge to it. Nice display on the palate. Well crafted and delishiously spicy and fruity.

Served In: Goblet
