4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL bottle, pours amber orange. Aroma of primarily 1) coriander, and 2) orange zest, wheat, yeast and red wine. Flavour is very complex: orange peel, coriander, and citrus - with secondary notes of sweet fruits, and subtle vinous and oak qualities. Most invigorating.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This brew is a clear copper color with a medium slightly fizzy white head that evaporates steadily. Short strings of lace on the glass. Aroma of citrus, vanilla, spices and oak. Medium body with a vinous character and flavors of oak, vanilla, coriander and yeast. The finish is sweet and fruity up front with a spiced aftertaste. Above average overall.

Wasnít really a mix of flavors that I liked nor did they become better when mixed. It is still a good evening thirst quencher in the summer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pinot Noir does go with beer- but with sour ale aged in Pinot Noir barrels (RR Supplication, Panil Barrique). Pinot Noir juice (?)....maybe not. On tap at Quarry House Tavern. Pours a clear deep pink with a baby white head. Aroma is sweet candies, strawberry. Taste is baby powder, powdery malt, boozy, a bit bland. Dry ending.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep red, slightly hazy brew with a light pink tinted head. Itís a really good looking brew. Vineous aroma that shows a light orange peel and coriander note. Light peppery alcohol and a nice wheaty spiciness as well. Quite elegant at first. The flavour though kind of lacks the guts to deliver on the promise. Light bodied and the alcohol kind of strips away the more delicate character that this yeast is trying to give off. Itís a pretty good idea and the beer is okay, but I donít think it is terribly well-executed.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Clear golden yellow-orange color. Real thick, foamy cream-colored head, lots of lace. Really nice complex clovey coriander aroma, little alcohol (but not what youíd expect from a 10% ABV brew). Orange peel is there, and Iím noticing the pinot noir barrels too - goes really well with this. Nice spicy taste, light bitter. Just a bit of bite. Light, smooth carbonation and texture. Good, spicy aftertaste. Very enjoyable and drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured dark red with an off white head. Aroma full of orange and coriander with the wit, and the bitter fruitiness of the pinot. Tastes of orange and banana with a slight fruity overtone that somehow balances well. Very good for such a strange concept of a beer.
