Just tasted at bottling... The sweetness remains, with plenty of estery fruitiness to balance the alcohol. I can't wait to taste it carbed!

Déborah is carbed and DELICIOUS.

The high fermentation temps definitely kicked out some esters here, but they're not overpowering. There's a good amount of "juicy fruit," lemon and apple, and a suggestion of black pepper in the back of the throat. Banana is there, but in the nose only.

My mash temp seems to have left a lot of dextrins as it's not too dry or thin-bodied. And the flavor profile conceals the alcohol "heat." It's deceptively strong.

The grain and hop bill is so neutral that it seems like 100% of the flavor is coming from the yeast -- and 1214 really rises to the challenge. This is a magical yeast!

SWMBO is a Unibroue fan, so she is going to love this one!
