ClarkVV (6542) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 13, 2017
Bottled July 2016, shared by KBHess on 2/3/17.
Gentle to minimal haze to this blonde-golden beer with just a touch of light copper. Beige head atop is small and shows moderate retention for the style.
Beautifully expressed Brett in the nose is rounded out by just a touch of lacto-aceto acids, adding a bit more depth and strength. Otherwise, its full-on pineapple and guava-mango tropical fruit festivities. Light honey from the malt balances fairly amply and there is a good deal, though not too much oak to further add complexity. Dont get any wine character in the nose but its not needed as the delightful Brett steals the show.
In the mouth its decidedly less vibrant/bright with more barrel tannin, stronger expressions of acetic acid and a rather tannic texture with oily sourness lingering strongly on the finish. Malts are certainly there, and appropriate, with good attenuation leading to a malty texture, but theres a ton of acid and barrel here and its rather messy and unfocused on the finish. Light but engaging carbonation does help and no alcohol or flaw are noted.

ippopotamo36 (2325) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle at a tasting in Portland-Oregon, many thanks to douglas88 for hosting and offering. Hazy orange pour, minimal lacing. Nose: Cocoa, port wine, rich red/black wine. Just great. Mouth: fresh and clean, light wine, soft carbo, more cocoa, fantastic brew which talks to black/red rich wine but with a lager taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle @ RBWG 2016. Sort of a light orange colored beer with a thin white head. A really robust fruit character to the aroma of grape, grapefruit, white cherry, and lemon. It is highly acidic and sour. A subtle funk of leather, mushroom, and damp wood. Maybe just a light tropical note. Enjoyed this beer.
