The taste is tangy orange, mango, melon, pineapple, lime and sour white grape, with a sweet-sour finish. Nice balance. Refreshing and very drinkable stuff.

Corekd bottle from Hoppymeal, thanks! Orange color. Oak, vanilla and muscat grapes in the aroma. Sourish flavor with lots of oak, vanilla, ginger and grapes. Some rest sweetness from the grapes, not much. Hints of tangerine peels. Quite interesting and complex beer.

Bottle. [thanks after4ever]
Pours clear orange amber with a small, creamy beige film head. Aroma has oranges, apricot, apples, tartness, soft metallic. Medium carbonation, fine dry and light mouthfeel - especially considering the ABV. Flavour is tart, citrussy, light malty sweet and lots of apple zest. Sticks to my teeth. Sweetish finish with some plum notes. Nice.

Sample at the Barrel House. Slighly hazed honey-gold color with a thin white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing. Vinous aroma with notes of apples and oak. Medium body with flavors of tart funky fruit, oak and earthy yeast. The finish is fruity with a spice and white wine aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

750ml bottle acquired in trade with bu11zeye (thanks!). Poured a medium amberish color with a smaller sized off white head that quickly dissipated. Aromas of grapes, woodiness (that came out as the beer opened up), vanilla, and some funk. Tastes of the same grapes, woodiness, citrus, and the same lighter funkiness. Lighter tart finish.
