4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sample at the Scratch , Brisbane. Big farmhouse aroma, orange body, funky flavours ontop a solid Belgian strong. Way more complexity than I expected. This is a good beer, I’ll have to rerate a bigger glass with a fresh palate - the beer demands it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 11C. Clear deep reddish brown with a pale beige head that settles quickly to a coat. Vinous aroma with earth, spices, berries, caramel, citrus peel. Moderately sweet and spicy with oranges, berries, slightly singed caramel and a bit of a barnyard tang. There’s a real Western Vic Pinot Noir character here with vibrant berries but surprising lightness on the palate. Wouldn’t have minded a tad more sweetness but really liked the sense of place. Impressive.
