2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
750 ml caged/corked bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Batch 3, July 2014. Clear golden orange with 2.5 fingers of off-white head. Aromas of Brett, funk, wine, oak. Tastes of oak, herbs, dry wine, flowery and vinous notes, some white pepper, some tart acidic notes and Brett. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Too vinous for my liking.

Gold pour white head. Peachy. Urinal cake. Bubblegum. Nectarine. A bit too chewy. Spicing mixes well. Fine, hoping for something a touch drier but beer still reps.

Fantastic stuff. Pours a dark hazy golden. Aromas of red wine, oak, funk, Belgian yeast and some spice. Flavors are tart and funky with some nice sweetness and spice. Loved this.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours orange/amber with hints of gold. Head in bubbly and off white and faded quickly into faint wisps and a pencil thin collar. Aroma is heavy on the Brett funk, with grass, floral hops, and lightly bready malt sweetness. I also get some orange zest. Taste is again with the brett funk up front, some citrus zestiness, very faint watermelon and fairly floral. There’s a nice deep oakiness that works behind everything; but holds it’s own. Light body, tart and bright on the tongue. Bubbly med-high carbonation.

Bottle - Nice citrus and light grassy notes, with a nice berry like sweetness. Cloudy gold with a decent white head.. Tart and vinous with a bit of bitterness. Red grape and some woody dry notes.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Batch #3. Pretty light plum purple color. Nose is floral botanicals, light red wine when warm. Heavy astringent herbal botanical character, lemon drop citrus, light red wine fruit and barrel, bitter soapy rose, bitter citrus fruit pith finish that lingers. Improved as it warmed, becoming less bitter and astringent. Not chemically astringent, but botanicals reminded me of accidentally getting some cologne or perfume in my mouth until it warmed.

Bouteille partagée. Robe jaune trouble. Un nez de saison avec des bretts, c’est surprenant. Le pinot fait son œuvre. La bouche est piquante avec des saveurs de bretts et de blé. Un peu funky. Le bois apporte une couche de saveurs supplémentaires.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle pours toasted cloudy orange with a finger of head. Nose is full of funky floral fruit, juicy tartness, pinot noir notes, and damp wood. Tast has crisp tartness with balanced acidity, funky wet wood, some yeast spice, dark berry, lots of enveloping vinous red grape and wine flavors. Finish is dry, a touch prickly, tart citrus fruit, wet wood, toast, grape, floral fruit and berry, some yeast spice. Wonderful.
