Gaverhopke ’t ~ Koerseklakske

Appearance: steady stream of bubbles amidst cloudy lemons. Active white bubbly head. Clumpy broken layer surrounded by a sticky collar. Suspended haze of yeast.

Nose: lemon, pepper, yeast, and brisk cider acidity which doesn’t overwhelm. Chamomile. Floral quality in the back with stems and leaves and fresh mint. White grapefruit. Delicate golden grains. Quick hit of mandarin rind.

Palate: lighter mouthfeel than expected. Sweet up front with sweet breads than lemon followed by dryness of grains. Dried chamomile petals. White pepper in the breath. Mint is a tingle along sides of tongue. Rind along the sides and under breath. Dry golden grains in the middle. Straw and bales of hay.

Final Thoughts: surprisingly light and refreshing without being boring. Would go great with a lazy bike ride through the fields during harvest.
