Big thanks to Mike for this one. 16oz waxed and capped bottle into Hill Farmstead stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a thick, white ring for a head that just sits atop the brew. Beer is a clear dark copper. Lacing is thick and layered with excellent stick. Real nice.

Nose is grape sweetness, oak and Brett funk. A mellow tartness serves as a nice background.

Opens grape sweetness. Lemon tartness in the middle with notes of oak, Brett, band-aid and some hay. Very well balanced with flavors that are nicely integrated. Ends tart grape seed and skin. Aftertaste is vinous with a mellow woodiness. Excellent.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and foamy in the mouth and goes down aggressive and bubbly. Finishes puckering and filmy with a sticky, lingering aftertaste. Very good.

This beer is very well balanced and certainly one of the more mellow of the Emptiness series. Flavors are finely integrated here and even though its a pretty simple flavor profile, its done very well. A real good beer.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Orange body with a darker tinge. Grapefruit juice colored. Hazy. Small white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Ah, nice. Grapefruit. White wine barrel. Oak. Grainy malt. Some grape fruitiness in the back end.

Taste - Pleasantly tart. Less intense on the citrus up front. Grape flavor up front, but only distinguishes itself from the wine barrel with a bit of sweetness. Wine flavor. Oaky. Grapefruit citrus comes back in the end.

Mouthfeel - Nice sourness. Medium light. Well carbonated.

Overall - This is the best beer of the night so far. Great combination of barrel, citrus, and grapes.
