3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours a muddy dark orange, thick white head. Nose was predominately fruity like apricot, mandarine orange, and cherry drizzled with complimenting notes of vanilla and oaky wood. Dry, woody, alcoholic fruit flavors...apricot/orange/nectarine...pretty boozy and very oaky with vanilla softness and essence of apple in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin, off-white, sloppy head of varying sized bubbles. Minimal carbonation. Nice complex aroma. A slight bit of funkyness in there along with lots of vinuous white grape aromas, some herbs, a hint of bret and some soft grainy malts. Color is a slightly hazy dark copper. Flavor has a little zip to it from the funky tartness that accompanies the spicyness from the mustard seeds. The tartness keeps the mouth salivating and begging for more while at the same time drying out the palate. More white grape with only a minor alcohol presence. Some belgian yeast and a tad of straw round out the late palate portion. A pretty good brew that will not be a hit with everybody.
