5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Smell of old oak matches with tart fruity aromas. Flavor of a very fruity Sauvignon blanc and oak ending. All the mild fruits finish rounding this out.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared @ dangerous bottleshare #8 . Pours hazy orange with an off white head. Aroma of hay, funky brett, nectarine, barnyard, dirty oak and some other sweet citrusy notes. Strawberry is very subtle in the aroma. The taste on the other hand holds the strawberry notes along wit nectarines, hay, dry oak and some funky brett. Nice tartness. Definitely one of the better if not the best almanac i’ve had yet.

Bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares #8, thanks to Klimaet/Brandon! Pours a hazy orange with a big, white/off white head. Aroma has lots of fruity stuff. Mostly the nectarines shine through with citrus peel, sweet, fruity, slight wild strawberry, dusty funky and tart, big, dirty oak barrel. Taste is fruity tart up front with the citrussy sour notes up front, followed by lots of strawberry sweetness. Dirt, dust, barn, oak and other dry, funky stuff. Both dry and juicy finish. Very nice! One of the best i’ve had from Almanac! Crisp, light body with medium high carb.

Bottle, thanks to major Tom. Hazy gold pour with tenacious white head. Aroma is really intense, nice strawberry aroma, white wine, light buttery oak, fruity, intense funkiness, berries. Taste is tart, lightly gastric and acetic but not overpowering, strong citric acidity, awesome berry flavor. Palate is med bodied, med carbonation. Great stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours clear blonde, rather small white head. Smell is intense, very fruity. strawberries up front, mandarines is more in the back of the scent. Some sourness as well, hint of funk. No real oak in the scent. Taste is sharp , sour and very dry. Sourness gets countered by the fruit. Well mixed between both, but strawberries have the upperhand. Funk and oak aren’t very intense in this. Fruit builds up in the ending. Another nice one from Almanac!

Pours a light peach color with a big, 3 finger, fluffy head. Gushed out of the bottle. Lots of strawberry on the nose with nectarine and orange rind. Strawberry up front with notes of nectarine, berry and wheat throughout. A wave of sourness hits hard up front and continues on throughout the sip. Very carbonated with medium body. Think I happened to get an overcarbonated bottle but it was still fantastic.

Thanks to Rian for sharing! Nice floral nose. Fresh fruit, nice sour aroma. The beer starts tart and sourish-fresh. Smooth strawberries, yellow nectarines, fresh and deep-fruity sourness. Very great smooth-dry with hints of fruity sweetness. Fresh long and smooth aftertaste, great fresh fruits, intense, fruity, great!
