3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Bright tangerine colored body with a thick haze throughout; creamy eggshell cap on tap that lasts for the length of my pour. Nice aroma of sour lemon, lactic acid, citrus, berry fruit skins, passion fruit, light tropical mango, & a strong back-end of grassy, floral, & moderate botanical notes. Flavor has an even stronger berry presence; almost tastes like raspberry & blueberry, I’m assuming that’s the pomegranate. Mid-palate shows more of the tropical side with understated passion fruit, mango, & maybe some vague citrus. Tart, slightly lactic & lemon-like acidity flowing from front to back with a nice, biscuit malty underbody & a solid flower petal presence lingering in the finish, a hint of herbaceous grassy notes. Yum.

750ml bottle huge thanks to adnielsen and Lukaduke! Pours reddish orange with big head. Nose is beautiful bright juicy pomegranate, grape, and floral bretty fruit funk, dusty wood. Taste is wonderful ripe juicy pomegranate and tropical berry funk, some floral grape and musty hay. Finish holds lingering juicy floral vinous fruit, basement funk, and semi sweet pomegranate. May be best of the set at this point.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a 750mL bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting, big thanks to Aaron Nielsen for sharing!!! Pours cloudy pale peach with an average white head that leaves average lace. The nose is floral violet, lavender, tropical fruit, and plenty of spicy brett funk. The flavor is more sour than expected, very floral, herbal, and tons of tropical fruit. The body is light and very tannic with lively carbonation and a long sour, herbal, and floral finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Murky amber pour with no head. The nose offers medium-roast malts, toasted oak and vanilla. I’m picking up no fruit here. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and Key West carbonation. The flavor is bready, fruity – peach, moreso than passionfruit or pomegranate – and moderately tart. Short, crisp, tangy finish. Bottle provided by 50belair!

Served in a Crooked Stave tulip. Nose is bright fruity notes with pomegranate and, to a greater degree, passion fruit. Light lavender in the background. Light and tart. Really drinkable. Took some restraint not to treat this one like a session beer.
