Intro: So, unfortunately this bottle got forgotten in my cellar for almost 5 years, but after tasting it, it’s aged well. A 750ml corked and caged bottle, bottled on 28th October 2015. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A mostly clear golden colour with a one finger white head that had pretty good retention and left some lacing.
Aroma: Tart, lemon zest, melon, honey, oak, light funk and brett notes.
Taste: Tangy, tart, lemon, lemon zest, lime, white grapes, light funk, brett, and a touch of minerality.
Mouthfeel: Dry, light bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: A forgotten bottle in my cellar that I did not get to try fresh, but this tastes great right now. I can’t comment on the wet hops, but it’s got good fruity citrus and white grape flavours that were nicely balanced with the funk and brett. Refreshing and enjoyable to drink.
