Pour out of 750 mL bottle, pour is slightly hazy orange with thin white head, aroma brought notes of nice funk, brett, nice oak, chardonnay, hints of nice biscuit, bread, slight lemon notes, really nice. Taste is even better, nice biscuit, bread, lemon, nice funky, slight oak, chardonnay/white grape notes, finishing fairly funky, nice grass, hints of grapefruit. Very, very tasty. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Floral and tart aroma with light oak and light fruitiness. Tart/sour flavor with light citrus and light malt. Medium bodied. Tart/sour notes and light citrus lingers with light caramel and light grape. douglas88 (9174) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Big bottle picked up in Corvallis. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a large white head. Deep funky flavors with toast, leaves, lemon. Light tartness, some funk, white wine, vinous at times, fluffy palate, earthy. Caramel and more citrus zest. Really good. Mellow and drinkable but complex. Impressive. czar (9056) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by Dogbones). Looks good; a hazy lemon yellow with white head and a bit of tiny sediment. Smells good too; white wine, oak, funk, and lemon zest. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Good stuff!

750ml bottle pours a hazy gold with some frothy white head. Nose is herbal, tart, lavender, dusty, flower pollen, white grape, white peach, fresh squeezed orange juice. Flavor is really heavy with unripened peaches, kumquats, orange juice, lemon zest, herbal, lavender, white grape, light wood shaving. Lightly sweet, otherwise herbal finish. Very nice. Well crafted. bytemesis (8336) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Bottle thanks to cocoapuph. Pours clear golden, small off-white head, dissipates fairly quickly, good lacing. Aroma is funky, cheese, feet, oak and lemons. Flavor is light tart, medium funky, some fruit, oaky lemons. Light body. Weird. kraddel (8074) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2014
Thnx to vincent ( Belgbeergeek )
pours fuzzy blonde / A bit like a white . Small white head
You can smell the barrel, also some fleshy, organic thing to it , Berries ???
Good carbo . much funk , sour, rather dry , some berry-like taste that gets more intence towards the aftertaste .
very nice !

Very fancy bottle. Cheers to deeblo for bringing this from the states! The pour’s slightly hazy gold with a medium white head. The aroma’s salty brine, tart lemon peel, light marshmallow. Wild funk. The taste is green apple juice, soft acidity. A bit of lemon drizzle cake. Ribbon candy. Very easy-drinking and smooth considering the ABV. Medium body, slightly chalky on the palate. Overall, pretty nice. I didn’t get much of the wine barrel in this. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2013
750, corked and strung. Thanks, A & E! You guys are awesome. What a great treat. Pours a murky medium amber with bright golden blond edges and a dense and creamy platinum blond head that starts out as a gigantic PITA and never really goes away. You’re constantly dealing with huge cotton balls of lace and an endless supply of head that endless threatens to geyser over the top of the glass if you’re not careful with the pour. Big tart swanky nose, lots of lemon, some basement, strawberries, some egg yolk...this cat just flat knows how to get parallel lines to fall into patterns like railroad tracks. The aromatics bundle together in a harmonious sequence of fairly disparate qualities that end up being much more interesting together. Creamy medium body with boundlessly lively carb. Tart caramel, lemon, basement, strawberries, moss, egg yolk, and mineral dryness on the mid palate. The mineral notes assert more near the end, along with the strawberries, leaving the swallow and the follow a nice cling of berries and rocks. This is a wonderful beer and I should drink it all the fucking time.
