500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Gushed on opening. Big fluffy white head that lasts forever. Deep orange body.

Smell - Very bretty. Some tropical aromas. Pineapple. Some yeast.

Taste - Again, very bretty. Lots of citrus. Earthier and yeastier. Some tartness also builds into the back end. Finishes with a sharp tart orange flavor. As it warms, the finish lends some oak and a wine flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Mild tartness. Medium light body.

Overall - Really improved as it warmed.

On tap at Goods from the Woods 2014 with Festero. Funky earthy citrus and yeasty with bits of tart fruit. Decent brew.
