look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4.25

Bottle opened 11/28. Jean @ TH explicitly said that it will take a little time to carb up, so my rating is pre-carbonation and reflected in mouthfeel score.

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange into a tulip glass. Almost no carbonation, and no lacing.

S - Huge wine character. I don't get a lot of plums in the aroma, but I do get a general fruit aroma. I guess my nose isn't good enough to pick out a plum.

T - Strictly taste-wise, this is the best TH bottle released so far. The wine barrel is really front and center, and the acidity/frutiness is in perfect balance. It's right on the line of a wild ale in terms of acidity/sourness, but it's definitely a saison in terms of body and subtlety. The only comparison I can make is SH Peconic, which this beer reminds me of (but is not quite as good as). Same ballpark stylistically, though.

M - It's really undercarbonated, but everyone that bought it knew that going in. Jean @ TH has stated that in a few weeks it should be fine, so I look forward to opening another bottle 3-4 months from now and seeing what the time did.

O - If this were carbed, it would be really something special, and I can't wait to see what a little time does to it. If you have a bottle, I would advise against opening it for a few weeks at least, but the flavors are just spot on right now if you don't mind the lack of bubbles. Looking forward to the other 'emptiness' variations for sure.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Orange amber body. No real head. A few bubbles at the edges. Very faint surface wisps.

Smell - Oaky and winey. Lots of white wine. Acidic smelling. Some mustiness along with fruitiness.

Taste - Much more sour and very plummy. White wine is a little diminished. Plum in the aftertaste and some oak.

Mouthfeel - Pretty tart. Medium light body.

Overall - Very tasty. I could drink a lot of this.
