Really enjoyed it. Great for small parties. The bottle itself is pretty elegant, and once you pour it in, it's great. High on citris flavors, but smooth going down. A great cloudy, yet crisp looking amber and goes down smooth. Perfect for a summer day. A bit on the expensive side, but if your looking to indulge, go for it.

1000th review. Only took 4.5 years. Many more to come to.
765 ml bottle was poured into a large tulip glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a crazy three finger head that finally reduced to a small puffy layer. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of many bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Pretty funk, oak, chardonnay, vanilla, apple, pear, and a little orange.
Taste: Nice mellow funk, grape, apple, pear, vanilla, wheat, orange peel, oak, and a little bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, a bit dry, medium to high carbonation, a little chewy, and a little funk.
Overall: Stellar beer enjoyed a lot over the years and many more times in the future.

3.76/5 rDev -8.3%

This pored with a foamy bright white head that sat atop a clean brilliant yellow color.
The nose was tangy with white wine, vinegar, black pepper and a spicy touch.
The flavor had tones of white wine, malty vinegar, peppercorn, Apple cider, Apple cider vinegar and a yeasty funky finish.
The feel is tart but easy, light and clean.
This is quite enjoyable but the vinegar flavors are not well suited to my palate and make me score this lower.
Serving type: on-tap
