This was a sample from David at Verdant Tea, tucked in with my last order. I brewed it at 4g/4oz water. Rinsed once with 212F water, then steeped at the same for 2 seconds. The liquor is a nice shade of brown with red hints. Semi-hazy. The aroma is all about the malt. Mainly wheat. It’s a very inviting aroma. The flavor is a bit more complex. Again, lots of malt. Hints of the maliard reaction coming across as caramel malt. Some brown sugar. The mouthfeel is full and silky smooth. No astringency. Some diacytel-like butter character throughout. With all this wonderful malt it reminds me of evaluating malted barley at work. I’ll have to order this!
