3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Craig’s, immediately after the non-barrel aged version. Pours hazy amber with a big white head, very frothy. Aromas of brett funk and fruit, but not necessarily white grape, more orange than anything. Taste has light wine notes, but very faint. I don;t think the beer has been improved by the aging process.

Huge bret on the nose and that’s all i’m really getting. Some citrus fruits and also some grassy notes but overall bret is the main thing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle.
Pours a copper colour with a white head. Aroma of tart citrus, honey, floral and brett. Rich flavour of rich grapefruit, caramel, honey, biscuit, brett and mild spiciness. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and juicy, dry, citrusy finish with some brett notes. Brett is not overwhelming but accompanies the base beer quite nicely. Somewhat heavy too.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500, capped and foiled. Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a loose white head. Huge lemony nose, minerally, spicy, complex and unexpected and harmonious in spite of the mishmash. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Mid palate evaporates in the blink of a cottony, grassy eye. Not much happening there at all. Long tart vinous lemony finish.W

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a hazy amber colour with lively off white head. Nose shows tart apricot, citrus, acidity and some funk. Taste is dry and has notes of grape, citrus, sour fruits and some tartness. Carbonation is quite high but it works.
