Appearance: freshly baked breads. White head fades into a bubbly layer of enticement which crawls up sides of glass to meet and greet.
Nose: harvested grains, bread crusts, and lemon peel. Vibrant green grass dew-dropped and ready to be mowed. Yeasty, doughy, and then spicy. Whispers of the tropics – guava and papaya. Freshly kneaded dough.
Palate: chewy breads – more like biting into a loaf freshly baked then taking a sip of beer. Tropics in the back – guava, papaya, and mango with skins still attached. Green in the back and along the edges – grass and tropical skins. Sweetly doughy chewy middle within which lemon and spice mingle. Slowly grows a touch of dry bitterness in the back swallow and back top of tongue – lemon peel, green grass, and tropical fruit skins.
Final Thoughts: Matt is a precision brewer; his dedication to clean flavors which does not exclude experimentation and boundary pushing reminds me of Garrett. I know nothing but tasteful success and long life awaits Tequesta Brewing Company.
