This has been a long time coming and I am very excited to be posting the tasting notes. The brew day notes can be found here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f127/memories-yeast-356624/
On the eyes: the way I see it is deep copper, brown/red mahogany/amber with brilliant clarity.
On the nose: Vienna malt is in your face followed be ripe fruit; pineapple, mango, papaya. There is a slight musty impression and a hint of tartness.
On the tongue: warm bread in the background with a slight lingering tartness which increases with breathing. A faint memory of EKG melding with pineapple/ date/ fig/ sherry, all giving the impression of having not long swallowed a boozy Christmas cake with the tartness taking the form of old toffee apples and a slight alcohol warmth.
On bottling day this was my favourite even warm and flat. It had a very complex wine aroma and I almost didn’t want to carbonate it for fear of ruining it.
Overall: a warming, reassuring, tart Brett aged ale with memories of the fairground and Christmas. Reminds me ( I am known for being strange) very much of Orval, and I can think of a great many worse beers the be reminded of.
