3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Has an orange-amber color, no head. Low carbonation, reluctant aromas of floral hints, some leather, young grapes, with no tartness in the nose at all.
Upwelling fruits in the beginning, with a very smooth mouthfeel, backed up by musty yeast. Then, sour tartness brings a new layer to the beer, without rolling over the established smoothness. Due to the lack of carbonation in this one, it becomes a little heavier on the palate, and therefore does not get distracted by metallic carbonation. This leaves the attention on the acidic sourness, mingled with grainy malt and oaken notes, which lingers on the palate in a gentle, fruity way for a long time. Also a slight sweetness is recognizable, in a soft, wine-like fashion, which gets washed away, as the lemon zest orientated aftertaste begins to dry out the palate. The sourness nontheless is pleasant on the tongue and well balanced throughout, as it leaven space for impressive sour and bitter notes.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Brad. Thanks!
A: Pour produces a huge foamy head that makes me think this is angry I opened it. A bit of a gusher, too. Cloudy orange in color.
N: Potent oak, spruce, grapefruit rind, and lemon. Hay and dusty attics. Leathery and very earthy - some lavender mixed in here.
T: Very sour with oak acting as the balancing agent to the yeast production. It’s intense but satisfying.
M: Bubbly to the point of being foamy. Light body. Easy to drink.
O: A sterling beer. I’ve had this before, and the past couple of years have done some magnificent things to the bottle. Just beware the unleashing of the cork.
