A bit tart with suggestions of cherries and a bit vinous as well. Faint oaky woodiness mingles with the grain, very aromatic in a mildly pungent way. Lip smacking tartness upfront subsides as soon as the palate becomes accustom to the level of acidity. Oak flavours draw the mouth towards dry yet there is just enough sweetness from the grain to meld with the tartness for a sweet-tart juicy middle. Hints of earthiness show a complex yeast. Faint sherry character as the warmth of the alcohol becomes more apparent with its slightly ester profile. Finishes with more wood on a dry note. A beautiful beer, as the beer caresses the mouth the tartness awakens the taste buds. Very refreshing and a perfect pair to a simple goat cheese. This beer is not for quaffing, sip and savour every drop.
