When you hear things you sometimes don't tend to believe and you think that the persons involved to something to invoke the reaction. I am talking about "gushers." Beers that when opened, due to the amount and type of bottle conditioning yeast, they explode similar to a champaign bottle. Well it happened to Ed (old friend) and myself when opening Oro de Calabaza. Beer everywhere and out of a bottle of some 25 ounces, we each only got about 3 ounces when Mt. Saint Helens spent her brew.
The beer had a thick head that was taller than the amount of liquid and was white.
The aroma is something that I still trying to put together. There is some lemon grass, alcohol (almost like hard alcohol), sourness, and, I guess, some type of funk due to the wild yeast.
Wow, this beer is telling my mouth a story. The beginning of the beer is what I am still trying to define. The middle of the beer has some sour apple (acidity) and finishes with the same alcohol that I had in the aroma. Finishes dry, probably because of the oak aging.
Seems to have a light mouth feel and light carbonation. The complexity of the beer may give idea of a larger mouth feel than there is.
I really have to try this one again. There is so much going on with this beer that I couldn't take it all in. Another try and I will hopefully be able to sum it up better. Enjoy!
