|Oh its clearly very clear.|
|Under the stress of bottle conditioning Brett does some wonderful things.|
Very clear Golden yellow, moderately high carbonation tiny bubbles shooting up from the center of the glass. The head last for a while but very thin just around the edges of the glass.
Fruity forward aroma, a little bit Apple, light Funk in the background, lactic acidity. No hops or malt. A slight ethyl acetate aroma as the glass warmed to room temperature.
Tart right upfront, Lightbody, somewhat prickly carbonation. It's dry but has a little bit of a sweet bite on the back of the palate, finishes quick off the tongue leaving you with a dry puckering mouth. It is pretty refreshing and drinkable.
When I tried to first bottle of this almost 2 months ago I thought it was little bit one dimensional, and maybe lacked some complexity but its really coming along in the bottle. This reminds me a lot of Brian Hall's Lambic with a lot more carbonation. It's fruity in the nose very little barnyard, tart, dry and refreshing. It might be lacking a little bit of complexity but i think as an unblended product it holds up well. I let some of it warm up to room temp to let it open up a bit and there is a slight ethyl acetate aroma, it is very slight but something I will want to keep an eye on as the Solera ages. I am quite pleased with how this is drinking and look forward to seeing how this ages over the months to years.
