Bottle shared during the RBWG 2015 Grand Tasting. Thanks! Pours unclear gold with a creamy, white head. The aroma smacks of oxidation, with touches of pale wood and rindy citrus. Medium to big sweet flavor with mellow alcohol, tangerine, spicy pine. Medium to full bodied with average to lively carbonation. Lightly tangy on the finish, some citrus fruits, orange, tangerine. OK overall.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour, fruit and tannic wood aroma. Medium to full body with a tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer for style.

&50 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy golden amber color with a small yellow beige head. The aroma and flavor have big guava and tropical fruit notes, the wine barrel adds some white grape and wood, nice tart/ sour character, some lactic notes, this has some bite to it as it goes down, some sweetness as well, I enjoyed this overall.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle, thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Bottled 10/22/13. Funky oaky chardonnay and guava in the nose, pretty nice. In the flavor, more of the same, but kind of peppery too. Hazy amber orange color, completely hazy. Thin off-white head, leaves some loose ropes and bits of lace. Head retains well. Kind of a bigger sweet taste, moderate sour (somewhat strange sour character), moderate bitter taste. Kind of peppery, spicy and biting, but the bite and tingle is kind of interesting. Bite wears off after a bit. I don’t see any ABV on the bottle, but it drinks a bit bigger to me, like 10% or so. Kind of a bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Mildly slick texture. Pretty damn tasty and interesting.

Pouring at EBF 2014. Pours a mostly clear amber with a thin to medium sized white head. Musk, wood, vinous. Faint fruit and funk. Sweet into a bit of acetone. Tart but the acetone and acetic qualities are distracting. Long tart wood and wine, faint funk on the finish.
