3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into a chalice. Pours a dark orange that carries a slight chill haze. Small off-white head on top. The aroma is almost completely wine-like. That barrel really took over the bouquet. Really a tart scent - lemon zest, grapes, blackberries, some ethanol.
Moderate carbonation. I actually expected this one to carry a bit more spritz, but it seems thin at times. Light feel, though, eases the drinkability of this tart beer.
This beer packs a wallop of fruity flavors. Blackberry, lemon, and the pinot grapes really dominate, leaving a nice tart smack on the palate. The finish is short though, causing me to sip and sip all the more. The spices that are normally present in a Wit, Iím not finding much of. The barreling as well as time aged Iím sure have mellowed those out a bit. A nice simple tart beer.
I really enjoyed this one much more than their second installment - Peach. This one delivered as advertised: an easy drinking tart beer. Nice work, MEB.

More tart than sweet.
Blackberry liquor and muffins in the nose.
More tart in the nose than the mouth.
Fine, mildly tart, lingering aftertaste.

Pours a hazy honey-golden with a thick and rather persistent eggshell head. Malty aroma has a hint of blackberry. Not strong, but intriguing. Flavor is mainly malty, a little bit of blackberry, slightly sour, slightly hoppy. Texture has good fizz and decent viscosity. Donít know if it was worth the price, but it is definitely enjoyable. Heck, itís from a great North Carolina microbrewery, and I like!

Bottle. Hazy golden amber color, medium white head. Aroma is fruity, with apples, peaches, pears, some vanilla and citrus. Taste is vinous fruit, tannins. Odd combinations.

[4705-20120818] Bottle. Pungent smoked honey woody sweet malt aroma. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Honey lemon pineapple flavour has an underlying bread-and-honey base. Medium body. Really interesting, the aroma is misleading. (5/3/7/3/13) 3.1

Had this at the Campground Brewdown. Pours a hazed golden amber with a medium sized white head. Smells of fruit yogurt, yoplait or something like that. Medium bodied, light tangy wheat, tart and fruity. More yogurt flavors, tangy but not sour or tart. Fruit and sweetness coming through on the finish.
