3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml corked bottle (Batch Dec 19 2013 10.11%alc/vol) pours a hazy golden yellow color with a massive white head decent retention leaving some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon, white wine, yeast, light fruits (perhaps apple). Taste is a lemon sourness with a fruity and malty sweetness, a light white wine dryness and light citrus hop bitterness. A complex and well crafted brew, but not one of my favorite styles, although I still recommend it for others who can appreciate this style.

Bottle, pours hazy golden with smaller top. Smell is nail polish remover and vinegar. Taste is lemon, lime, and strong oak with a slightly acidic bight. Much preferred to the smell but still not a fan.

750ml bottle in a teku. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of sourness / tartness, some light malts, some light oak and wine, and a good amount of floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A solid beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (750 ml). Slightly hazy yellow with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is very lemon/lime forward and reminds me of the Barrel-Aged Flora Rustica that I drank a couple of weeks ago. There’s also winey notes, oak, brettanomyces, yeast and light spices. Taste is also mainly of lemon/lime along with wine, oak, light vanilla, brettanomyces and light spices. Nice citric/acidic touch. Alcohol is very well hidden (our bottle said 11,03% abv). Medium body. Fizzy carbonation. Slightly winey mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish. Very good lemon/lime forward golden ale. The wine barrel give this beer a couple layers of complexity. Really drinkable, especially considering the high abv. It’s my second beer from this brewery (the other was La Tache) and I’m really impressed. I will definitely look for their other beers!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy golden, thin whitish head. Aroma is strongly fruity, citrus and grape mainly. Flavor echoes the fruit notes of the aroma and throws in a bit of malt. Texture has average thickness and fizz, but it goes down well.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Thanks to Darrell for sharing. Also huge thanks to boralyl for getting me out a bottle of this. Bottled Novemver 9, 2012.
Pours a lightly cloudy light straw color. Nice fluffy head with good retention. The nose contains light sulfur, cheese, wheat, and hay. Some backing lemon and other faint citrus. Really extraordinarily complex and interesting. The flavor ups the lemon and brings really integrates everything beautifully. Acidity is a fantastic component in the background without being too heavy. A bit of backing wine with a touch of pepper and phenols.
Absolutely fantastic. I’m blown away by this beer.

Big oaky nose with tons of sourness - Green apples, lemons, creaminess. Big carbonation not as sour as the nose but lots of oak, funny and lemon. Just found this a bit too big and could be more like 7% and work better. Decent but not mind blowing
