New Riff Maltster Bottled in Bond Kentucky Straight (Wheat Recipe), 50%

Price: $50 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: David Fleming




Raspberry cobbler, candied watermelon rind, caramel, peanuts, and violets on the nose. The palate is earthy and malty, balanced against sweeter notes of Juicy Fruit gum, cherry cola, and semi-sweet chocolate. Water brings out spice, along with caramel, brown sugar, and generous oak influence. On the finish, toasted oak is balanced against notes of raspberry jam and chocolate-covered strawberries. Pleasant and luscious, with pronounced but balanced spice.
