ippopotamo36 (1583) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle at a tasting in Portland-Oregon, many thanks to douglas88 for hosting and offering. Hazy orange pour, minimal lacing. Nose: Cocoa, port wine, rich red/black wine. Just great. Mouth: fresh and clean, light wine, soft carbo, more cocoa, fantastic brew which talks to black/red rich wine but with a lager taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brokensail (15600) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle @ RBWG 2016. Sort of a light orange colored beer with a thin white head. A really robust fruit character to the aroma of grape, grapefruit, white cherry, and lemon. It is highly acidic and sour. A subtle funk of leather, mushroom, and damp wood. Maybe just a light tropical note. Enjoyed this beer.
