3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Perfectly clear rosy-orange with one inch of off-white head. The nose: a splash of vinegar, oak, grapefruit peel, touches of banana and pear. The flavor: lots of white grapes, pear syrup, green oak, a touch of butter, caramel. A hint of green jolly rancher sourness as well. There’s some lingering Cali Beglique bitterness after a biscuity finish. Smooth medium body is hefty for the style. High, champagne-like carbonation delivers plenty of silky fizz. Neat.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft - pine nose. Starts off quite sprucy, but the white wine barges in and makes itself at home and drinks your cellared beers straight out of the bottle while eating Cheetos. Thanks but no thanks. Fruity aftertaste.

Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a clear orange-gold with a minimal off-white head. Aroma of peach, apricot, herbs, sweet malts, and red and white wine grapes. Flavor of pale and sweet malts, oak, vanilla, grapes, and florals. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation and a bright, vinous mouthfeel that has some floral bitterness at the end. Really nice and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper with a thin foamy white head. Nose is like hoppy grassy boozy bubblegum, with an earthy spicy caramel. Weird, but not bad. Just quite an eccentric nose. Taste starts a bit boozy and overly floral-resiny with strong bitterness and a bit of syrupy dank malt, almost like thin molasses. Citric and piney finish, kinda dry and more boozy than necessary.
