Not sure of the goal here but it didn't work for me. It did smell wonderful, very close to a sweet tart, but that's about all the was good.

Tastes like a pear pissed itself....a fun idea and attempt, but a really unenjoyable experience.

Thanks again to Jones153 for this one!

Pale golden orange, alittle murky on the second pour, one finger of white head with a bit of lace. Smell is full of fruit, big tropical fruits, pineapple is the most noteable, hoppy nose, the base beer still seems largely undistubed, wine and oak presence is minimal but is still lingering especially at warmer temps. Taste is also fruity and tropical, orange and pineapple, oaky with a light vinious aspect, moderate bitternes, very fruity with a bit of a yeasty aftertaste. Medium carbonation, medium body, nice feel. Really good and much prefered to the base beer, another good offering from DDC.

S - Oak, Belgian yeast, clove, light vinous aroma.

341ml Bottle from Brouhaha QC for $6 - 2011 Edition

Appearance - Slightly hazy golden colour with an average size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 2-3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Apples, breads/grains, yeast, wine

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, breads/grains, and apples. There is also a clove/coriander/yeasty spiciness, some tart citric flavour, and I can taste the wine quite a bit.

Overall - Another winner from DDC. Very complex and and interesting to drink throughout the glass. I'll buy more if I see it again.
