Bottle at CBC Clerkenwell share many thanks to Teorne. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with a small firm white head. Nose is big citric juice, vinous - white grape focus, lemon, hay, funk. Taste is very vinous and grape driven, tangy citrus, sage and pepper, quite grassy and lightly funked. Very light and dry sigh some nice complexity which comes together very well. I like this

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle I accidentally bought in Tempe. I had to pry the cork out of the bottle for some reason. It was carbonated though. Cloudy yellow pour with a white foamy head. Big aroma of sour funk and green grapes plus a hint of spice. Earthy and sour flavor with some sweetness and pepper in the finish. Nice but maybe not worth the elevated cost.

12/26/13. Bottle sent up by Homer321 for the QC tasting. Cloudy yellow orange pour with a nice khaki head that sticks and laces well. Nice funky aroma, barnyard, straw, hints of fruity sweetness and a spicy aspect. Nice flavor, dry, refreshing, good fruitiness, brett coming through nicely, more fruitiness. Digging it. Tasty!
