3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Belmont Station, pours a hazy golden orange with no head. Aroma of tart oranges, oak wine, and brett. Flavour brings out loads of wine notes, a bit of peppery spice, and loads of tart wheat. Hugely vinous, finishing tart and wheaty. Great stuff, but perhaps a bit too vinous.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the Bend brewpub. The beer is a hazy dark yellow color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of tart fruit and wheat. Light-bodied with flavors of sour fruit, oak, bananas and yeast. The finish is fruity with a vinous aftertaste. Decent overall.
