3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Hazy whiteish gold. Nice citrus and brett nose, definite sweet barrel note, some juicy passion fruit and mango. Good brett funk in the taste, nice little citrus twist, mellows out into tropical juice and finishes with a good hint of that chardonnay barrel. Light in body, very thirst quenching, while being complex and interesting. Another good one from Siren.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Just about clear, golden colour. Filmy, white head. Oily, lemon zest. Lime, too. Gooseberry, maybe. Taste is dry, tart and fairly bitter. Palate is tart, with some oiliness, emphasised by the soft carbonation. Finish is woody, tart and dry. Bung a Lost Abbey label on it and triple the price...? Very nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber, hazy; no head; sour aroma, hint of sulphur; taste is sour apples, white grape, lemon; bitter hops and wine in the finish; this oddity didnít really work for me at first but the flavours began to segue into one another quite well as time wore on; I was only partially won over by the end.

The taste of white wine is pretty clear along with the brett. On its own undercurrent is a great citrusy pale ale and here itís even more complex. I agree with other reviewers that it strikes a great note between pale ale and wine.

330ml bottle. This is a very well made drink - iím not calling it beer because it defies being categorised! The effect of the cask ageing (from what appears to have been a very good quality wine cask) has been to produce a drink that marries all that is good in beer and wine. Fresh, crisp, lovely fruit and floral aromas, married to complex flavours derived from oak ageing. Wonderful.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (330 ml). Slightly hazy golden/orange with a small ring of white foam and no lacing. Aroma is mostly of Chardonnay along brettanomyces, citrus, light breadied malt and floral notes. Taste is of brettanomyces, Chardonnay, citrus/fruits, breadied malt, floral notes, dusty notes and light bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry dusty brettanomyces finish. When a good brewery decide to age a Pale Ale in wine barrels, it seems to give pretty good results (this one is pretty good as was the Assemblage #1 from Dunham). Nice complexity. The barrel treatment is dominant, but not overwhelming. Tasty!
