4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served at cellar temperature (currently (57 degrees F). Gusher! Thar she blows!
Upon settling, the appearance is cloudy orange with a thin white collar. White sage, coriander, lemon grass, herbal. Red wine character emerges in the flavor, whereas it was a bit lost in the aroma. Lightly sour, tangy, funky. Medium bodied with zesty carbonation. Complex and delicious.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. A bit of a gusher but once it settles down pours great. Clear golden pour with a small, firm white head. Sticks around and looks very appealing. Nose shows heavy marmalade and sticky, dried fruits. Very earthy and a nice kick of funk to it. Some tarty berries coming through. Seriously complex and superb stuff,. Taste shows heavy apricot and tarty berries. The red wine gives it a tannin like finish. Great marmalade/jammy fruits in this beer. Amazing beer

A bit devastated, this bottle cost me 17.99 and I’ve been saving it for about 5 ir more months, opened it up and it GUSHED all over thr place, i probably lost atleast 6 or more oz. Pours cloudy golden orange with a big white head. Aroma is very bretty and funky with only mild wit scents. Taste is awesome, you can really taste the wine barrel, tart and zesty lemon notes, brett funk with that good horse blanket, dry wine like finish, good carbonation. love this brew, wish i hadn’t lost so much of it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Beware, this exploded all over the place when we opened it, probably lost a good five ounces. Pours a cloudy golden with lots of head. Aroma is full of sage, with the barrels there in the background as well. Body is very lively, medium. Flavor is well balanced if a little bit piquant, somewhat earthy and herbal. Finish reintroduces the sage, as well as a bit of yeastiness. Not bad, but not sure why the ratings are so high.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pale golden body. Fizzy, white head. Inviting aroma of fruits, brett, spice, sage, mustiness, straw, lemon. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. Dry and tart finish. Taste of citrus and spice along with light brett funky lacquer and grass. Clean malts. Different for a wit and more complex than most. Very nice. Thanks for sharing wnoble.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear golden with no head. The aroma is oaked chardonnay with light hints of fruit and spice. The taste is light and crisp. If I tasted this blind I would swear it was champagne. There is tart apple and light spice on the long finish. Nice beer.
