COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Evora is a golden hued beer, brewed with a 2-Row and Maris Otter malt blend. It was hopped with Northern Brewer, Mt Hood and Sorachi Ace hops. The primary fermentation used a classic Belgian yeast strain. The beer was then aged for 16 months in Portuguese Brandy barrels with Brettanomyces. The finished beer exhibits notes of honey and stone fruit in the aroma. Citrus and oak dominate the flavor giving way to hints of bread crust. Evora is medium bodied with a fruity, dry finish.

Advocate_Ames (634) - Steubenville, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2017
Pours a golden amber with a soft foam head that laces my glass. The aroma is of subtle brett, yeasty, mild brandy booze, grassy and spicy hops, lemon, pineapple, dough bread, and oak notes. Taste is of a pleasant sweet yet spiced brandy, honey, there is a good yeast flavor, bread malts, good acidity, lemon, some blood orange, white grapes, weak peach, soft funk, mild tartness, and a good sour taste. The finish is enjoyable with a soft dryness and the blending of flavors that were listed. The mouthfeel is good and has a medium champagne like carbonation. Overall a very interesting and drinkable beverage.

Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2017
Hazy Yellow pour with not as much head as expected. Sweet peachy nose but with a horse funk and tart flavor. Quite good sour.

mcberko (18389) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2017
375mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Nose brings out brandy barrels upfront, followed by pears, candied sugar and toasted caramel. Flavour is along the same lines, with candied sugar, brandied pears, tart stone fruits and toasted bready notes. Light brett funk in the back. Complex but not hugely enjoyable. Good stuff.

JPDIPSO (6255) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAR 7, 2017
Light golden color with a nice flow of bubbles to sustain a smaller off-white head. Good snappy bubbles. Light pale malt, with some mild floral hops, brett, oak, grape peels, and brandied light fruit. Mildly sweet start, and fairly sweet throughout. Soft bubbly feel. Slightly acetic with some grape peels. The brandy gives a strong presence and adds a light port to chardonnay flavor. Fairly dry in the finish. Wish it was a little less sweet, but I realize that’s the brandy at play. Really nice effort.

Smells like sour woody tangerine and peach. Hazy pale yellow with light head. Big front woody tart softens and mellows in to smooth sour fruit light vanilla light bitter wood. So many flavors ever changing.
