Hazy light orange body with a tiny head that quickly fades to nil. Aromas of oranges, funk, white grapes, lemon zest, white wine. Tangy, sour oranges with some herbal and floral notes. Light bitterness. Fruity throughout. Complex and fun to drink. Pretty good.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A- Muddled golden body poured from the 375ml to two wine glasses. A foamy, creamy white head builds up to just about one finger with fairly good retention. Medium ring leaves a few big sheets and some spots of lace.

S- Chardonnay, vinous light grapes and Brett off the top making up a bulk of the overall aromas. Slightly funky and a hint of tarts. Some stone fruits and a bit of cocoa but lacking endive and pumpkin here.

T- Definitely on the vinous side of things with a big influence of Chardonnay wine, you can taste the wine for sure with oak and grapes coming to mind. A large dose of Saison spiciness and citrus zest. Brett and stone fruits perhaps the Buddha's Hand. Dried fruits, Brett drying straw, horse funk, slight lactic tartness and just a hint of cocoa.

MF- Foamy and frothy light-medium body. Carbonation towards the high side but not over the top by any means. Finishes funky with a decent bitterness and very light tartness.

A lot going on here but the prevailing theme is Chardonnay, vinous grapes and Saison yeast. The pumpkin, endive and less so the cocoa are drowned out but the beer overall is a good one between the Brett and wine.

375ml bottle into a snifter

dark golden color with a moderate head. yeasty aroma with a touch of wine barrels. taste has quite a huge amount of chardonnay barrels and a lot of apple flavor as well. slight pumpkin flavor on the finish. maybe some chocolate as well, actually quite a lot was put into this beer and its very complex, but im not sure if it all blends well with each other. body is light for 10%, but the alcohol burn is felt after you swallow so you know its correct. feel is moderately carbonated, overall not too bad. probably not as good as the overall rating indicates, though.

Foamed over on opening- hate when I do that. Pours a hazy orange with a quickly dissipating head. Tang from the chardonnay barrels is the dominant theme in both the nose and flavor profile. Overwhelms the cacao nibs to me, but good in its own right. Dry finish.
