The second bottle was reviewed on 03/07/2013.
Appearance: Hazy gold with touches of copper. Off-white head with ok retention.
Aroma: Banana, clove, brown sugar, and buttery notes.
Taste: Peppery, with a spicy finish. Buttery mouthfeel.
Overall Impression: It’s been 6 months since the last bottle I opened. I think the brett is starting to throw some diacytal, as is evidenced by the buttery-ness. It also seems to be entering a mute phase. I’d suggest you continue to hold onto this one for a while longer, it needs some time to exit its mute phase and for the brett to uptake some of that diacytal. I’ll open another bottle in 6 months and see where we’re at.
Availability: Nationally at select retailers.
