Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London. Thanks to Jay for trading me this one. Hazy gold with a creamy white head. Mild tangy clementines in the nose, touches of flowers. Decent funk in the flavor, light sweetness, hints of white bread, some oranges. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Dry finish with light sweetness, modest bitterness, some white grapes, lemons, oranges, slight herbs. Quite delicate. Very drinkable.

Cloudy orange pour with a tall white head. Initial aroma is pleasant. Tart lemon, green apple, and citric tartness. Some floral notes, a bit of oak, wine, and grass. The flavor has a pronounced elderflower character, sour lemon and green apple, and wine. Charred oak, pronounced smoke, and a hint of bandaid after the initial tartness of the flavor.

mcberko (13492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
375mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a cloudy, opaque dark-ish orange with a medium off-white head. Nose brings out lots of oak barrels, some brett, lots of the flowers and hibiscus, and some vinous qualities. Flavour brings out the wine barrels and oak upfront, followed by hibiscus, flowers, and some bretty notes. An oaky vinous tartness on the finish. The barrel aging is the more prominent component compared to the hibiscus, rose hops and elder flowers, though the latter additions certainly add some nice subtleties. Carbonation is on the higher side, without being champagne-like. Excellent beer.
