Draught at Blind Tiger, New York. Hazy golden/apricot aroma, small head. Sourish fruity and woody aroma, grapes and citrus, grapefruit, some vinous notes. Tart perfume flavor, grassy, vinous, figs, hay, woody notes, caramel and raisins, some yeast. Complex and really good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (maybe 2-3 years). Phenolic nose, smokey and rubbery, with some stone fruit. Clear straw color and very slick. Some gentle initial fruitiness, thin peach, bit it gets sad fast. Medium body, a bit tangy. Good at first sip, but it falls away into disarray. Maybe too old....

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy gold with nice lace. Tart nose of yogurt, white wine, some cocoa, and some phenols. Flavor is medicinal, phenolic band-aid. Pretty gross actually, after a promising start.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy golden with a small white rim that leaves low lacing. Nose is of funky brett, alcohol with a light fruitiness. Taste is of light white wine and moderately sweet. Something I could call cacao maybe. Light spice. Body is medium and carbonation moderate. Alcohol isn’t too hot but still a little. OK but a bit of a mess. I don’t think this recipe should be rebrewed as is.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
No head. Nail polish type funk, sharp tartness like Almanac Pumpkin sour or anything by St. Somewhere, white grapes. Wish washed body, not able to pick up too much, heavy carbonation feel but not biting. Juicy white grapes, Muscat. Hint of Pils malt. No real booze perception.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
375 ml. capped and waxed bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, tiny bubbled, white head, over a slightly hazy, gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is spice, cereal, light funk,minimal hops....taste is lightly floral honey sweet, with light allspice, ongoing hints of funk, citrus notes, leading to a mild pepper finish, with light hops notes.....mouth feel, light of medium body, alcohol warmth present, light acid, high carbonation. The various and sundry additives pumpkin, candied endive, cocoa nibs, Buddha’s Hand get lost into the various Brettomyces and Saison yeast. The result doesn’t taste bad, but is muddled and has minimal character. Too many good things sometimes do not work. BJCP 6/3/12/4/6

Hazy light orange body with a tiny head that quickly fades to nil. Aromas of oranges, funk, white grapes, lemon zest, white wine. Tangy, sour oranges with some herbal and floral notes. Light bitterness. Fruity throughout. Complex and fun to drink. Pretty good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle from Tipsy’s, shared with a friend. Aroma of funky yeast, sour notes, light pumpkin spices, herbs, mild citrus, light oak, and a touch of chocolate. Similar flavor, funky, tart/sour and lightly spiced. Everything comes together well. Quite nice.
