look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Color is a dense (golden) orange, with a small white head. The lacing is subtle upon the head’s quick dissipation

S: Aroma includes that of coconut oil, vanilla, ginger, oak, lemon, pineapple, fruits of sorts, and has a lactic acid/sourness to it. Quite tropical, unique, and cumbersomely interesting

T: Lactic, acidic, sour and tartness are present in a fashionable manner. Luscious complexity of tropical flavors, hints of wood, and accompanies of lemon, pineapple, coconut, vinegar, ginger, coriander, and butter and coconut notes. The coconut plays a big role here, and does a superb job. Letting this sit/warm up a bit provides for a unique experience of intricacy

M: Medium to Full body, and light to medium carbonation

O: I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews on this fella, but I myself thoroughly enjoyed this one and would highly recommend it to those in search of something beyond the ordinary. Letting it warm up a bit before delving into it, and spending a fair (not obnoxiously) amount of time with each sip, is key to enjoying Melange #9

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.
