TimE (5253) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 6, 2016
Amber hazy color. Very tart tons of soft fruit notes of strawberries and apricots with some oak in the background. Very tart, tons of fruit in the mouth with tons of strawberries and apricots. Very sour. Tons of oak and vanilla with fruit lingering finish. Very sour, well made, but predictable brew. I was kinda hoping for something a bit strange and different, but didnt blow me away.

NikkTwist (2863) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2016 Draft at Bainbridge. Unusual rose gold pour with a slim off-white ring and a splash of lace. Sharply tart but quickly balanced by complex malts. Bright amber and berry fruit. Raspberry. Apricot. Cranberry. Dragonfruit. Kiwi. Peach. Sour cherry. Currant. Lingonberry. Lots of fresh oak. Medium body. High ABV smoothed out by the tannins. Well aged. Well crafted. Well done!

Tasting at Brians. 750ml bottle from BCL at Park Royal (thx, Jamey!). Vintage 2014. Pours a cloudy rose-ish golden with a white head. Aroma is sour, fruity with stone fruits notes. Taste is very sour, quite dry, very fruity with raspberries and stone fruits notes. Very good, but I do prefer less dry and sour stuff.
