3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL bottle, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of brett, light sour fruits, cherries and champagne. Flavour is tart and fairly sweet, with balsamic vinegar, sour light fruits, dry fruit and oak barrels. If there are no oak barrels used, there is a lot of complexity as such with a fairly light body. Medium carbonation and really well-blended. Great stuff.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 c&c from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy copper with a 4 finger creamy off-white head. All the foam cuts the aroma, but lightly sour light pitted fruit seems present. Full bodied. Flavor is full of many things. There’s a strong yeasty funk, with fruity sour, and something like noble hop (not the grassy type). A little treacle. Finishes barnyard and reasonably sour. Just delicious.
