4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2016 A-coloured opaque, massive carbonation, huge white head.Smell is vanilla, wood, subtle bitter sweetness, white pepper, peach... lots of citrus, full and dense. Lots of farm smells, flowers, hay.Taste is sweet - peaches and oranges, but only for a second, and then gets overwhelmed by dry bitterness, salty. Elegant sourness, astringency, grass, resin, watery astringent finish. Vanilla, hint of yoghurt. White grapes. What a killer! Bit too much astringency, heavy, overwhelming! Artwork, but hard.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy golden with a large frothy off white head. Nose has fruity barrel notes, honey, grapes, pepper, mild funk. Flavour follows; white wood, grapes, honey, leather, barnyard. Medium body, oily texture, mediums sweet, mild bitter, dry, some astringency and alcohol in the finish. Too astringent and alcoholic, but not undrinkable and boosts ok.

15th December 2015
Bottleshare at Chez Smith. Very hazy deep gold beer, good cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry, decent fine carbonation. Savoury brett, mildly bitter. Little malt sweetness. A light red wine vibe back in to more bitterish brett. Mild marmalade. Trace of something tropical. Airy semi dry finish. Bretty but plenty else going on, tasty and drinkable.
