I’m sampling this from a 12oz can with a Julian date marked on the bottom of “17322.” For consumers who love to do a math problem while shopping for beer, that would translate to the 322nd day of 2017, or November 18th. So this beer is over five months old, but that shouldn’t be a problem for this style.
Into the tumbler glass, this is clearish, light golden in color with fizzy, soda-like foam that recedes rapidly – normal for this style. Dig in and the aroma is more vinous than I expected with a Riesling character of lemon and lime moving to pear and peach as the beer warms. Stay with it longer and white strawberry pokes through to give it a rosé quality. Funkiness is almost non-existent. Perhaps it is a bit sweaty, but the lacto character isn’t prominent. The overall aroma is surprisingly nuanced and dialed-in.
