look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Batch 130/131.

A - Pours a bronze, sunset orange with nectarine highlights. Head is a soap bubble wisp of white bubbles. Wee bit of lacing. It's hard to rate this as a Belgian Pale.

S - Oh yes. Ohhhh yes. I think I need to get a tissue. Massive amounts of oak, cinnamon, unpasteurized apple cider, brett, white wine vinegar, tartness. Mouth-watering.

T - A lot more subdued than the nose leads. A bit tart at some spots, but not overly so. Basically starts smooth with a light tartness, and lots of brett notes, and finishes quite clean and slightly dry. Lots of light fruit flavors, really great tastes. The wood in here is great and at times it's like you're licking the barrel.

M - I like the lightness of this but I wish it had a little bit more than the practically non-existant carbonation. If it was crisp on the tongue, everything would come together better.

D - The lack of carbonation sorta bums me out, but otherwise, for what it is, it's pretty drinkable.

Notes: I've been wanting to try this one for a while now. Thanks Craig.

Once upon a funk beer. All funk from smell to taste, still being a good drinker and under control. Much funkier than any JP I have ever tried. Great looks with a big fomay head and lots of lace, that also serve to cushion the tongue and make for a smooth drinkable beer. Thanks for scoring, Doug K.

Wanted to try this beer forever, don't remember who shared it at FFF's 15th, but thanks a bunch.

A - Dark orange beer that's got some haze. Not a lot of head on it, and what was there didn't stay around for very long.

S - Has some yeast, tart apples, grapes. Decent sourness and tartness. Slight acetone with some oak and vanilla.

T - Taste is pretty nice. There's a bit of wood there, decently sour with some tartness. You get the apples in there, and a bit of other fruit with a hint of spice. Solid.

M - Mild carbonation with a medium bodied beer.

O - Good stuff. Has a good bit going on with it, wouldn't mind tracking this down again and revisiting with a larger share of the bottle.
