3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On the nose a little funk compliments a vinous aroma. A pumpkin amber pour with short lived off-white head and no lacing. The palate is an explosion of sweet and sour. Interesting. Sweet to begin with and quickly turning to a citrus sour finish. Not what I was expecting. Wood, white wine, fruit sweetness, citrus, slight sourness. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Overall, an unusual but a rewarding Belgian strong ale.

Deep copper colour. Lots of bubbles hold a small, white ring head. Good sour aroma. Flavor is doused with Belgian candy sugar. Burnt caramel and yeasty notes follow. Still prett ly good for all the sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly cloudy orange brown. Funky nose with so peppery esters, white wine. Fairly malty, with some peppery spice, white wine barrel character, and tart finish, with unfortunate bruised apple acetylaldehyde.

On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Golden, orange and hazy appearance with a small white head. Aroma of tart fruits, citrus zest, funky yeast, vanilla, wine, and light oak. Similar flavor, vinous, mild sweetness and light bitterness. Pretty tasty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at Hunahpu Day in Tampa. Thanks! Golden amber pour with a medium fluffy head that lasted. Decent lacing spider webs. Aroma of white wine, green grapes, wood barrel, cereal, and straw. The taste was white wine, slight funk, slight spice, dough and apples/pears. Light body, good solid carb. FInish is wine barrel for sure.
