Pineapple, lime, lemon and caramelized banana nose. Stardust-sparkly entrance of zesty lime, crystalline pineapple, and dried apricot, Meyer lemon, touches of coconut oil, sesame and steely snap pea.

This is a cheers we’ve been waiting four years on. Well worth the wait. Congratulations, President Biden.
First time having this cuvée. Thank you to Christina for opening.
The nose says it leans reductive. Rich, creamy; slightly sour lemons, lemon meringue, overripe stone fruits & pineapple, busied pear & golden apple, notes of apple cider, ginger ale laced with cream soda, sea spray to fossils, volcanics minerals, fine chalkiness, yeast, bread dough to baguette crust, graham crackers, nougat with withering yellow lilies/spring flowers.
The palate is rich, full & juicy. Light on its feet with beautiful mousse. Rich, creamy; slightly sour lemons, lemon meringue, overripe stone fruits & pineapple, busied pear & golden apple, notes of apple cider, ginger ale laced with cream soda, vanillin, sea spray to fossils, light white spice with perfect, heat, gentle volcanics minerals, limestone, fine chalkiness, yeast, bread dough to baguette crust, graham crackers, nougat with withering yellow lilies/spring flowers. Excellent, lively acidity. The finish glides beautifully across the palate with moosee mousse, richness, balance, elegant and persists gently for minutes.

Suspended from Tired Hands Brewing Company: “A mature Sour Golden Ale brewed in July 2016 with wheat and oats, and lightly hopped with a blend of Simcoe and Amarillo. Primary fermented in two large oak puncheons with a house ale strain. Secondary fermentation occurred with our Magickal Saison yeast and mixed cultures. An exercise in time and patience, this beer was bottled in February 2018. Refermented in the bottle for natural carbonation and conditioned for over 2 years before release.”
One of my favorite beer styles and this is a great one. — a month ago
Congratulations to TB12 on going to his 14th Conference Championship.
The nose shows; more macerated green & golden apple, pineapple than usual. Touch of apple cider, bruised pear, some dried apricots, nougat, melted, salted caramel, alluvial limestone minerals, chalk, sea spray, roasted white spice, dry yeast, rising bread dough, baguette crust, ginger ale with withering lilies and some spring flowers.
The palate has softer mousse & less lively acidity than previous bottles. Still nice but, it’s giving cause to wonder when this bottle was disgorged. Macerated green & golden apple, yellow peach, pineapple juice. Touch of apple cider, bruised pear, some dried apricots, nougat, melted, salted caramel, alluvial limestone minerals, grey volcanics, gritty chalkiness, sea fossils, saline, roasted white spice, nuts, dry yeast, rising bread dough, baguette crust, ginger ale that has the high notes of root beer, vanillin with withering lilies and some spring flowers. The acidity is ok but, seems off a bit. Change in base wine for this bottling? The finish still rich, elegant, well balanced persisting minutes.
Bottle is off slightly from the many others we’ve enjoyed.
