Bottle. Cloudy straw colored, fluffy white head with solid lacing. Aroma of light spice and summer fruit. Apricot really comes out in the flavor, more like dried apricots and white wine. Interesting stuff. Fruit is not overwhelming, and neither is the barrel.

Tasting at Chez Bruce. Hazy gold beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is airy and light, fine carbonation. Light floralness and a good winey tang. Mellow fruits underneath. Airy finish brings touches of yeast and spice. Joins up well.
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Kenny. Pours unclear gold with a soft, frothy white head. Delightful aroma aroma with subtle funk, lemon, tangerine. Light to medium sweet flavor with light citrus tang, mild lemon rind, a bit of alcohol warmth, white grape. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with some woody elements, peach, lemon, subtle grass and hay. Very nice. Theydon_Bois (20437) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013

750mL bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out brett, moderate apricot, and no pepper notes. Flavour is surprisingly clean, bringing out loads of brett, moderate pepper, a hint of the apricots, and moderate chardonnay barrels. The brett is upfront, followed by the pepper. The apricots are very far back and the wine barrels accentuate everything. Very well-constructed, with a super dry palate. Excellent stuff. jtclockwork (17070) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2012
Bottle with Yanick. Pours cloudy apricot with thick white head. Nose/taste of apricots, Brett, white wine, pepper, yeast and orange cream. Smooth and mildly funky. Medium body. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle @ Oakquinox 2013. Hazy golden orange pour with a white head. Nose is quite fruity and apricot forward. A bit of pear and apple as well. Sweet bread, wood, and lots of pepper. Some hints of wine and citrus zest. The flavor is a little bit bitter and alcoholic. Decent apricot flavor, but too much pepper and grass. Astringent grain husk notes, some bread sweetness, and a bit of oak. Ferris (16268) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle - Funky stone fruit and lots of tropical fruit. Cloudy and particulate orange with a white head. Peppery, grass and stone fruit. Dry finish and effervescent. Really nice. bhensonb (15601) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy orange gold with a creamy white head. Aromas of ripe light stone fruit and light spice. Med body. It is peppery, detectably apricot and somewhat barnyard. Rather delicate. The pepper builds with time.
