5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: APR 8, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a healthy looking orange with a dense, beige head which lasts for the duration. Fantastic legs on it. Nose instantly shows the funk and it’s mix with citrus hoppage. Massive tropical fruits - mango, passionfruit, nectarine. It’s like a semi sweet semi sour fruit bowl. Amazing stuff. Quite a tarty kick on the first sip but as my palate gets used to it, it really opens up. Loads of citric and tropical hoppage. A touch grassy with a great balance of funk coming through. Very punch-bowl fruit driven - mango, nectarine, apricot, grapes. So juicy. Palate is slightly creamy with a lengthy sour grapefruit-like tang. Unbelievably good beer. Best I’ve had in a long time

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber colour with a medium off-white head. Very pleasant aroma of sour and sweet berries and the barrel aging shines throug with sour and spicy apple cider vinegar, rowanberries and a touch of forest. The flavour is similar but more intense with a more woody bitterness. In the background I find some fruity hops. Has a slick and soft mouthfeel, and a medium bitterness. The white wine-aging take a lot of space in this beer, but feels balanced and pleasant. The bitterness comes through in the taste.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Smith’s. Pours turbid orangy deep copper with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is heavy ruby red grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, grapes. Tastes very tart, acidic, woody, heavy on the IBUS, and somewhat dry and black peppery. Achieves a grapefruit juicy, oaky flavor profile with the added malt that smooths out late. If this is an APA, then this is an APA on steroids, and a damned good one.

Hazy amber beer, little off white head. Palate is soft and light and a little silky, mild fine carbonation. A really nice palate. Lovely tasty beer - mild citrus fruits, a little brett. Really nice fresh white wine grape and mild sourness. Mango, peach, orange, gooseberry and kiwi in latter half. Fabulous.

Pours peach in color and is slightly murky with a crisp white head. The aroma brings the wine barrels, slightly sweet and some wild yeast. The flavor brings big notes of the white wine and yeast as well dominating, juicy at first but with a dry, pleasant ending.
