This beer is wildly unique. The brett strain that 7venth sun uses is completely different then any other. Aroma is coconut, lime, banana, and potent oak. Taste is vinous, pina colada, and huge spicy oak. Great beer.

Bottle:   Bright straw, orange hued, hazy, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Big white wine nose, otherwise a bit mealy, yeasty, and a touch fruity.   Bright on the tongue, sweet, a bit Tripel like, with a strong Chardonnay aspect.   This one feels a bit warming.   Thankfully not too sticky.   Body and mouthfeel are smooth albeit moderate.   Finish seems to dominate with white grapes and/or Chardonnay.   Wonder how a 3 month old aged example would fair as this one the barrel dominates a bit too much for my tastes.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 20, 2012
375mL pours clear deep gold with a near white head of foam. The aroma has sweet apple notes, pears, earthy apple skins and a soft pear like essence. The taste is similar with a nice mild tartness cutting through the apple to pear like fruity sweetness. This is lovely. The sweetness, the earthiness and the slight tartness create a pleasing harmony.

Hazy yellow pour, white head. Yeast, oak, white wine, light stone fruit notes. Flavor is nice with the barrel notes, yeast, hints of banana.

12 ounce bottle thanks to JW77. Pours a mostly cloudy orange color with a large fluffy white head. A big nose of dusty yeast and some sawdust. Seems like a fairly strong brett character, some lemon, robust citrus at times, woody, peppery. Very nice. The thick wax is unneeded.

11/14/12. 375mL (ish) bottle thanks to nulledge! Hazy golden pour with a small frothy white head. Nice aroma with wood, coconut, sweet candy, and more. Nice flavor as well, again with coconut, wood, sweetness, and some more complexity. A hint of corn in there is a minor distraction. Otherwise - nice!

Gription79 (2228) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Poured from a 375ml bottle, thanks to Doug. Pours straw in color with thin white head. Very dry, some tannic character. Fruity, sweet grainy malts. Nice beer.

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a near clear pale yellow with white head that starts and remains at the edges. Aroma has earthy grain with a hint of light fruit with a backing dry Chardonnay. Flavor starts with earthy sweet grains and light Belgian yeast with a nice note of dryness from the Chardonnay in the finish.

Huge thanks to Paulunwin for this bottle. Hazy gold with a small white head. Funky aroma with fruity brett, grape, pear, oak and soil. Flavor is pear, white wine, oak, funk, grape, earth and sour. Medium body with light carbonation. This was a tasty treat from an up and coming brewery!
