Adventurously heady silk-textured artesian ‘premiere’ ale remits muted ester-y grape nose as prickly hops tingle tongue and creamy caramel malts caress red-wined warmth. At midst, herbaceous floral bouquet deepens oak-aged bruised orange, tart cherry, and dried prune. Latent pecan, fig, banana, and nectar illusions counter cellar-like fungi earthiness. Loud port finish retains medicinal soured candy charm. Ultimately rewarding as slow sipping relaxant.
