A huge spice bomb. The beer offers in the front a fruity saison quality. Some of the white wine barrel and white wine come through. Then the beer just transforms as if there is almost ginger in there. Either spice or alcohol just hugely opens up the sinuses.

The beer could be held back a bit on those big flavors, but still a pretty interesting brew.

Pour is deep golden orange with a quarter inch of white head. Nose is quite acetic, strong fruity esters and a bit of plastic phenol with a hint of lemon and some assertive acetone. Taste is much more balanced and pulled together. Still some acetone up front, lots of fruity esters with tangerine and lemon, acetic acid is much lighter here in the flavor. Fruitiness is bright, more integrated as it warms.
