2.93/5  rDev -5.8%

500 ml bottle served cold into a pint glass. Purchased from LCBO.

Appearance - Clear golden color, with very few bubbles present. beer leaves a 1/2 finger of head, that lingers for a bit but doesn't have substantial retention time. Soapy wisps remain on top.

Smell - Grapes, vinous aromas some slight maltiness to the aromas. Maybe a touch of sour apple or pear.

Taste - Grapes, sour apples and a bit earthy and sharp. Some considerable bitterness here, but seems a bit out of place.

Mouthfeel - Dry finish, smooth and refreshing but with low carbonation.

Overall - Ok beer, but not anything i would purchase again. I find the grape flavors and sourness combining with the earthiness not to my liking and the mouthfeel isn't good enough to make up for that. Probably my least favorite Wychwood offering thus far.

3.31/5  rDev +6.4%

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of bready malts, grains, grassy/earthy hops and some floral notes.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some sweet bready malts, some grains, a grassy/earthy bitterness, some floral notes and a faint apples.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas.

A: Pours a great straw color with a slight haze, nice tight foamy cap which leaves a nice lacing behind.

S: Light hops are first thing you notice and a sweet malt in the back of that. A light fruity aroma from the hops are of mainly apples and then some light citrus.

T: On the first sip you get a crisp fruity taste of biting into a fresh apple.

M: Nice med bodied to full almost a chewy feel but not quite.

O: Overall a very good beer with much to offer to the palate. Great beer for the fall sitting around the fire...mmm.
