Small rim over fully hazy yellow beer. Liqueur, perfumey, but in a very good, slightly vinous way. Fruit as citrus, banana; vanilla, maybe even Bourbon. Citrus², like drinking a sweet(ish) lemon, would that exist. Again vanilla. Sharpish feel, faint astringency, light to meidum body. Very good one! Many thanks to Don!

Poured from a 04/26/2013 vintage bottle. Aroma is rather fruity with a lot of pineapple, pear, tropical and stone fruit. Some moderate wine notes and tannins with some light oak. Light citrus and acidity. A hint of alcohol. Pours a hazy, gold with a large, pillowy, white head of moderate thickness that recedes fairly quickly. Really light lacing and small legs. Flavor is slightly acidic with a hint of grain. Moderate fruit notes with some pineapple, pear, grapes, stone fruit skins and melon. Medium light tannins with some light oak notes. A bit of alcohol spice in the very dry finish. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with high carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, a surprisingly enjoyable beer. I remember hearing this batch was off when I bought the bottle so I sat on it and whatever was wrong has definitely cleared up. Great fruit notes with nice complimentary wine notes. Very fruity and dry.

RumRunner101 (886) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2015
Super hazy golden pour with white head. Aromas of pear, summer fruits, sour notes. Full bodied, well rounded, some fruit, kind of creamy, unripe nectarines, lingering sour and wood notes. Great.

Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2015
This was a gift from friends who visited the brewery. Cloudy, no head. Aroma is nicely tart and fruity. Stylish, fruity, rustic. Tart, clean lactic, fruity, really nice. Malty, firm finish. Fun brew, would like to study it more.

brokensail (13668) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Bottle @ RBSG 2015. Thanks, Ryan. Clear yellow pour with white foam. Big time lemon and green grapes on the nose. A bit of melon, some peach, and a hint of herbs. Nice stone fruits, too. Really bright sourness and acidity on the tongue. Tons of tangy fruits such as grape, dried apricot, and lemon. Slight oak and damp, grassy funk. Really nice.

Bottle of the 2013. Golden with a good white head and visible carbonation. Aroma is funky, white wine, elderflower, other random botanicals. Medium-light bodied, very soft mouthfeel, slightly sweet & floral on the palate with a funky tart & slightly spicy finish. Taste is elderflower, juniper, white wine, mango.

thome50 (1233) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle thanks to Ryan at the June SLO Beer Bro event. Pours a hazy yellow with moderate white head. Aroma is sweet and funky. Taste is very boozy and white wine like. Pepper and more sweetness to finish.

Pailhead (5746) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2015
Courtesy of steebo Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy candied orange, lemon, lemon peel, and white wine. It pours a hazy dull yellow with a small white head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a large bubbled ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of orange. The finish has moderate orange peel, light lemon, and a touch I of vinous notes.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle: Thanks, Steve. Cloudy bright yellow body. Chunky white head crackles & fades quick. Huge bretty aroma; dusty cotton, wood, funky white pepper, musk, old pineapple, cobweb, mild mineral water. Flavor of light mango, pineapple, dusty cotton & moldy barnyard funk. Woody, loaded with Brett, hay, & mild horsey notes. A small touch of vinous white grape in the finish. Super effervescent mouth feel, lofty & prickly. Good stuff.

75cl bottle bottle @Dangerous Bottleshares 7.0 thanks to Bursprak! Pours hazy golden/yellow with a small white head. Aroma is very fruity with mango, grapefruit, tangerine, yeast, funk, some hops, tropical fruits, slight coriander. Taste is very bretty dry up front. Gets more tart and with a fruity sweetness. Very fresh and fruity with very well hidden alcohol. Medium body and high carb.
