Pours a pale orange-tinged gold. Head is bubbly, off-white, clumpy lace left behind. Very cloudy too; pretty nice.

Smells tasty. Wild and Bretty with some tart vinegar, light citrus but balanced with a lovely pale malt with a big vanilla edge. Possibly oak. Very good.

Taste is hugely oaky, possibly to a fault. Lots of vanilla, coconut and butter, developing a slight clovey and aniseedy flavour towards the back. Slight touch of rubber on the finish is the only real culmination of the nose; otherwise just sweet and oaky. Refreshing enough though.

Fluid, bit of dryness; decent texture overall.

Kind of the opposite experience to what I had with Russian River's Temptation. Smelled tart, tasted sweet. Not bad either way, but I wouldn't mind a bit more cleansing tang or something on the palate.

Pour is transparent golden amber with a tight fluffy off white head. Nose is lime, green apple, and tropical fruit. Taste is fairly clean, strong lime with some tropical fruit notes. Brett presence is faint, slightly Cobb webby, with a hint of underlying grain. Carbonation is fairly strong, body is pretty light.
