3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home (best before 16/10/14, shared). Pours a slightly hazy amber with fast disappearing head. Aroma is almost bourbon like, malts, wood, dried fruit, Brett, alcohol. Taste is vineous, Brett, sweet warming alcohol, dry ending with a slightly sour, bitter, aftertaste. Strange (maybe stored too long), but still nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12.7oz bottle, from Dutch’s. Code on cap reads 8071210. Hazy red orange color. Thin off-white head, leaving short ropes of lace.. Drinking this immediately after trying the It’s Alive! Grand Marnier barrel... This is much less brighty carbonated, lighter carbonation, more crisp texture, bit more slick. Definitely a vanilla kind of flavor, which is sort of surprising. Very nice white wine oak influence, and lemon citrus, some caramel malt, mikkeller sour fun character. Toasty oak. Moderate sweet taste, light bit of warmth on the end. Moderate bright, funky sour taste over top the slighty bigger sweetness, it’s a nice mix. Tasty full-bodied slightly rich sour ale to sip on, very complex pleasant taste.

Mer maltig än jag trodde. Men ganska trevlig maltighet. Svag bretta. Men känner tonen av Chardonnay. Helt okej.

Bottle from de Molen beershop, BB 2 days ago, large sample, served in a tulip glass. Almost clear amber to copper color, short frothy off-white head. Aroma is quite fruity, white wine, strawberry, bit oak wood, slight sour, bit citric acid. Bit sweet, bit sour. Bit dry woody note. Fruity as well. Soft carbonation.

slightly funkier than the base, for better or worse, and also slightly sweeter from the grapes and oak. I liked em both, though a little steep in price.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home with my wife. Pour is hazy orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Oaky, lemon, some raisins, figs, caramel, some toffee, and tangy aroma. Taste is somewhat oxidized, toffee, tangy, cardboard, wood, and caramel with a light sour finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Very muddled - not good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks good; a fairly transparent orange with foamy off-white head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells semi-sweet and mildly funky with notes of oak and chardonnay. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Good, not great.
