An early spring release; brilliantly fragrant and refreshing
Brewed in the depths of winter and bottled fresh off the press. Aroma suggesting melons and pears; elegant flavor with a fine acidity.
Flavor & fragrance profile
Master brewer's comments
This year's rice dissolved less than expected, which made it trickier to brew, but in the end we got a higher and better aroma than last year. The flavor profile is similar to last year, light and easy to drink. It will develop more flavor and body over the next several months. (Jan. 2013)
Food pairing suggestions
Fresh fragrance pairs well with herb salads; flavor bold enough to go with saucy dishes like stews, grilled meats & fish.
