375 ml bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled 1/2016.

Pours a bright, mostly clear orange on the first pour, murky and a little pinkish on the second pour, like grapefruit. Guess I should have shaken it before opening. A two inch head and a good amount of foamy cling. Smell is yeast, some Brett, plums, a minty aroma from the El Dorado hops, some wine- more as it warms. The taste is tart, not really sour, more plums than the nose, yeast, light malt, wine- again, more warmed. Some grapefruit and oak, light mint, the Brett drops off. Very smooth and refreshing, solid body, well carbonated.

This one's a bit different than others in the series, never felt sour, but tart throughout. Lots of flavor, the plums come through nicely. Another excellent offering from Almanac, well worth a purchase.
