75cl bottle. This one didn’t quite carbonate in the bottle, which is too bad because it really needed some more acidity to liven things up. A little pinot character but a lot of sulfur stinking up the aroma and a pretty watery body. I like normal four but this was not a good way to treat it.

Many thanks to hannont for sharing this treat. Pours golden yellow with a white head. The aroma has smooth malt, wheat, pinot barrel, Belgian yeast and some sweetness. It has a medium / light body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with some tartness, bugs, pale malt and roughness. The finish shows lots of the barrel goodness. Really enjoyed this.

brokensail (14038) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUN 23, 2015
On tap @ Upright. Hazed golden pour with a soapy white head. Tangy grape and lemon zest. Lots of grass, some straw, and an overall nice fruitiness. A good bit of sourness and lactic acidity. Nice lemon, some grapefruit juice, and sour grapes. Plenty of oak and straw. Light funkiness. Pretty damn solid.
