Appearance: A cloudy golden pour with a thin, eggshell head and persistent lacing.
Aroma: Big nose of red plums, caramel, and cherries. Earthy whiffs of black pepper.
Taste: Vinuous and acidic. Flavours of citrus pith, with a red-wine earthiness. Pepper and cinnamon heat as it warms. A punch of orange oil to finish.
Mouthfeel: Light body and good carbonation. Slight carbonation bite on the palate.
Overall: Light and easy drinking. Not at all boozy, but gets warm and earthy in its final act. This is a complex beer, that changes tone and develops more spiciness and wine qualities as it warms and breathes. Beautiful craftsmanship.
