3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Freshcraft. Pours with a hazed amber-orange hued body with a large, fluffy and lasting white head. Impressive. Aromas are less impressive: strong acetone and canned peaches. Extremely, noxiously estery. Flavors are tart, estery, raw vanillin, lots of oak and floral. Lively bubbles, medium bodied, dry, warming. Very ’chemically’ tasting.

Turbid orange pour - frothy, moderate lace - zin barrel dominates the nose - damp oak, lightly soured wine, spoiled orange juice, a mild acetone/nail polish note - low carbonation - creamy texture - flavors of sourish yeast, but a fairly pleasant sin character washes this out quickly - sadly, shortly behind this comes some strong alcohol (of the rubbing variety) and mild acetone - a motherfucking mess.
