Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is pale, hazy, golden coloring, with no head. Nose of white grape, coconut, tart notes, toasted grain, and subtle sourness. Flavors are very tart, with chardonnay, apple, a toasted grain backbone, and hints of cinnamon spice. Light, crisp body, with a very tart and dry aftertaste. The finish is clean, dry, and crisp. Very nice. A lot of white wine characteristics. Solid.

A: Pours a hazed orange color. A white head forms, and fizzes out in a second. Light lace is left behind.
S: Toasted coconut with some lactic milk, sugar, malty sweetness, lactic acid. Not enjoying the nose.
T: Yep, not particularly enjoying this. Coconut for sure, toasted malts and a lactic acid, spoiled milk flavor that I don't like. Really sweet, the coconut milk like favor, acidic tartness, and sugary sweetness do not mesh for me.
M/D: A full body and moderate carbonation. A sticky, dirty, muddled mouthfeel. Not something I care to drink again.

No definition here at all, and not something I enjoy. The Bruery is always worth trying, but you will undoubtebly get misses and messes like this. Not something I would recommend.
