And, being the last beer I brewed since going to AG about 4 months ago, it's the best beer I've ever done. Hands down. I don't think I've ever brewed more of a beautiful, complex, to-style beer. 9% ABV. I mean, It's only my 15th batch, but still. The fruitiness is perfectly balanced with the spice character, and I even taste a hint of vanilla. Fermented this around 70 using WLP500. A partial mash. Also achieved a perfect, crystal clear golden color. Definitely going to throw this one into a competition at the fair this summer.
Just thought I'd share in the excitement.
