750 mL bottle poured, that luttonm generously both shared and muscled up to remove the cork. Thanks! Happy rate number 6000! A glowing orange pour with a gentle foam head. A wild aroma, sharp, inviting. Flavor is a very nice blend of wine barrel, as expected, but executed a lot better than I had imagined. Tart orange, white grape, soft peach. A ton of dry wine barrel late. As unique and interesting as they come. A beer worth celebrating an occasion with. Excellent stuff.

luttonm (6045) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. #6000, and shared with Andrewje41. 2014 bottle. Tall offwhite, yellowish foam that drops to a consistent cream. Lightly hazed, rich orange body. Waxy Brett aroma, funky preserved citrus, deep earthy and forest-flavored undertones. Quite saison yeast focused in body, which develops very nicely. Some candied ginger, lemon spiced tea, white grape skin. Waxy Brett and lemon. Some acetone perhaps. Tastes like it has a little age. Complex and delicious. Great treat for 6k.

maekchu (3816) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 5, 2017
Bomber. Punchy tart fruity nose, yellow fruit, and citrus. Cloudy medium straw color. Light fizzy stone fruit, small bit of funk, some sugary jumps in mid palate, and then it gets dry in the finish. Thin body, very light astringency. Very pleasant . Mild flavors, well balanced, and a fair amount of tartness.

A bottle on the Ale Apothecary beers tasting at Firefly on Cambie. Tasted with Brian. Bottled 17-Mar-2016. Pours a murky golden with a white head. Aroma is funky, floral, herbal, earthy, some sweetness. Taste is sour and sweet, fruity, herbal. Complex and well-balanced beer. Refreshing and easy drinlable (9.3%?!). Amazing beer.
