look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Date: 5/13/14
Location: Received in Trade from California
Glassware: Tulip

Appearance: Hazy orange to golden in color with solid carbonation. A half pinky head is all that appears from a typical pour. White to off white colored head gives way to reveal a small viscous ring at the beers edges.
Aroma: There is a wild array of aromas in the glass. Starting with the wine barrel there are lovely scents of the pluots, grape peel, a medium white wine, and a little oak. The brett scent comes after the fruit and gives it that mouthwatering funk.
Taste: In reverse of the aroma the first flavor to hit me is that wild yeast tart and wonderful. The fruit follows with nice flavors of pluot and grape. For me, I’m getting a nice part of the peach aspect of the pluot.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and medium to high carbonation. The beer has that puckering sensation from the brett. The fruit gives the beer almost a nice chew to it when trying to discern all the fruit flavors.

Notes: Received in Trade.
