3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy, barely translucent apricot with a fairly thick ivory head. Aroma has a strong overtone of spur fruit, apple with a bit of pear, and a note of fresh cut wood. Flavor is fairly sour, but not make-your-face-do-aerobics sour, with a woody undertone. Texture is rather firm and fizzy. Oak what a good one.

Bottle care of 10K Bois. It pours cloudy golden-orange with a small white head. The nose is fresh, soft, orange, lemon rind, candied citrus peel, straw and dough. The taste is crisp, orange sherbet, yuzu, lemon, light acidity, touch of peppery spice, tart edge and wood with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Crisp, tart and juicy. Yum pretty much sums it up.
