3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden pour with a thin white head. Nose is nice tart white grape, with a bit of earthy funk. Taste isn’t as funky--the grape is a little bitter, with skins and dialed back tartness. Fairly thick and slick.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with my buddy Blake and his wife Gina. Light in color, slight goldish brown tint. Aroma isn’t in your face with the sourness, neither is the flavor, but it still holds interesting qualities such as grapey flavors and a wine like finish. Unique and different.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks! Pours a clear amber color with a thin tan head. Decent head retention. Tart aroma with notes of caramel, bread, honey, wood, vanilla and raisin. The taste is very tart with pale malts, wood, vanilla, citrus. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle courtesy of fortsambo. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a light golden color with a thin white head and a bit of lacing. The nose has some white grapes along with some chardonnay and a bit of oak. Mild earthiness. Flavor is a bit sour and tart with chardonnay dryness and some oak through the finish. Light tannins and a hint of alcohol. Light acidity. Interesting, but not quite integrated.

Poured from bottle at SAVOR. Poured a straw yellow color, small white head. Aroma was funky and very vinous. Flavor was nice and tart, very enjoyable grape characteristics. Very flavorful, tasty - alcohol is hidden pretty well. I really like this one.
