750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled on 7/9/2013. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy deep orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big apricot, lemon zest, red grape, orange peel, light banana, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, honey, caramel, light biscuit, oak, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big apricot, lemon zest, red grape, orange peel, light banana, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, honey, caramel, light biscuit, oak, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, lemon zest, red grape, orange peel, light banana, coriander, clove, pepper, wheatm honey, caramel, light biscuit, oak, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a smooth, fairly creamy, and lightly slick/crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial witbier style. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

bottled 04-17-14, nose: light fruits, grapes, a light old fruit funk, orange, vanilla oak notes, Hazy amber under a 2” very finely bubbled and persistent foam cap, lacy and rouses easily after it drops. Very creamy smooth medium to medium full body supported by fine soft carbonation. The palate begins exceptionally creamy, with fruit – especially grapes with light orange, then a shot of caramelly malt over light bread followed by a moderate hop accent and a hint of alcohol so moderate that it’s hard to believe that this is 10% abv. The caramel-toffee flavors from the malt provide an intriguing balance to the light wine and oak flavors. White wine, light oak, alcohol, rich malt and a light hop accent linger in the aftertaste.

Light brown in color with a murky complexion. A fingernail of white foam covers the majority of the top of the beer. Brussels lacing. Complex aroma of coriander and Pinot Noir. The front of the palate is strong with the Pinot Noir notes and is quickly followed by bitter notes of orange and a balanced amount of coriander. The mouth is highly carbonated with a champaign texture. The strong alcohol is well hidden.
