Beer review — Wig & Pen Spies’d Old Ale with fresh truffle

Wig & Pen Spies’d Old Ale half-pint $4.50
Before seeping through the Modus Hoperandus (see above) the ale is malty and alcoholic but mild. Post seeping, the aroma, flavour and texture volume rise dramatically but harmoniously. It’s plush, silky textured and wine like in its complexity, with notes of molasses, then finishing fresh and clean with a delicious aftertaste of hops and truffle.
