brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Pours a murky orange color with a small off-white head. Really strange nose to this. Sort of spicy with some banana, white vinegar, mild oak, and grapes. Tastes of vinegar, wine, and oak for the most part. Some fruit notes to it, light butter in the background, and maybe a bit of citrus. Kind of watery on the palate, too.
