Thanks emacgee. Hazy amber with a thin white film. Nose of candy corn, strong cat pee, grapefruit, starfruit, grass and butter. Flavor is mildly sweet, mildly bitter, with a strong buttery and oaky white wine like component. Maybe a tad overcarbonated with a flavor that makes my tummy hurt.

Clear coppery body with strong carbonation. Huge offwhite head. Wooden funky gooseberry aroma with white wine grape notes. Dry-acidic wooden gooseberry pineapple taste with alcohol notes. Mid-bodied. Dryish wooden citric pineapple aftertaste with white wine notes. Nice, but didn’t like the acidity. (0.75l bottle shared by hcalsos.)

750ml bottle from secret santa. Pours hazy orangish brown with white head. Aromas of grapefruit and vinous with white whine and some funk. Flavors lemon, orange, and vinous white wine notes. A little tartness in there. Not bad, didn’t really work with my palate.

Bottle shared by emacgee. Pours a dark golden orange with a white head. Nose is hugely grapefruit, but lingering behind it is a spicy cat pee vibe. Not strong enough to totally bother me, but distracting from the great grapefruit thing. A decent amount of malt. A big and very interesting beer.

Pours red orange with a profuse sandstone head. Nose is straight up pink grapefruit flesh and raw pineapple with a vinous character and super dry notes. Very dry and citrusy with lots of pink grapefruit and some crushed black pepper. Awesome hop character, very dry.

750mL bottle, pours a beautiful vibrant opaque orangey amber with a voluminous white head. Aroma is very vinous and yeasty, with loads of brett-like yeast, sauvignon blanc, dry lemon and orange zest with a bit of fruity notes. Flavour is incredibly complex with an amazing balance of dry white wine, brett, dry fruity notes, lemon rind - so much depth and balance, with strong lasting flavours. The barrels accentuated the complexity so expertly. Damn delicious.

I picked this up from San Diego when we took a week long vacation there. This was one of those that I felt was a bit of a prize. I had never heard of it and of course never seen it here in AZ. I saved it to share and it happened to be opened and shared today.
I really like this beer and wish I had another. There is a sense of grapefruit and apricot just from the cork alone. The cork was synthetic. I love the mouth fill of this beer as well. It seems to be a bit frothy. There is a tiny head and some minimal lacing. It pours a light burnt orange/maybe a medium. Beautiful beer. Cheers to this beer!

Laurie got offended that I used the word puke, But to me, that’s what her dinner tasted like.
