COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No.16 And we quote: Ughhh.....You think your having a bad day, try having a bad life! The ocean is so boring you might as well be looking at the sky. All three of my bikes are at the brewery and I havenít had water in three days. The best thing about being a pessimist is proving an optimist wrong. Life will be easier when Iím dead. Dude, drink this, cheer up!

stumpyiliz (216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Nose is buttery Chardonnay with peach and pear. Taste is heavily carbonated with slight Brett funk and white pepper. Bubbles are super dry and leave a leathery taste on the tongue. Tastes like a buttery, spicy, Chardonnay champagne.

solidfunk (4474) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Very well balanced. Only a hint of barrel in this - just enough to put an edge of oak here. Golden pour without much head or lacing. Some florals, with light bretta. Delightfully tangy finish with a little sweetness. Some apricot, a little apple. Bottle pour at Churchkey feature event.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear pale yellow with a small quickly-dissipating white head. Aroma brings out lots of grape must, white wine and a little oak. Flavour is very dry, vinous and complex, with loads of white wine barrels, followed by grape must and the oak - a little funk too. Hugely vinous, which is what characterizes this, though without being monochromatic. A great one from Avery.

Bottle at Euclid in Denver. Pours a clear yellow gold with paperthin head. The aroma is a strong oak, funk, grape. Medium mouthfeel with nice boozy wine and white grape with nice sour finish. Very impressive.

12oz bottle from Aaron, half leaked out on the way out, so Iím drinking the rest now. Pours a clear, light yellow with some bubbles around the edge. Aroma is fruity, white wine, some oak. Medium on the palate with light carbonation. Flavor is lightly sour, oak, white wine, with a light sour finish.

HonkeyBra (3516) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a bright golden pour with a thick white head. Aroma of funk, tart wine grapes, chardonnay, some hay and dust notes. Some wet wool and wine notes. Flavor can easily be described like carbonated chardonnay. Pretty wild. Mildly sweet with a fair amount of tartness and interesting funkiness. Some grapes, some barrel, some mango and melon sweetness. Mild acidity. Quite unique and interesting.

Bottle courtesy of BeerandBlues2, thank you! Bright clear golden yellow color, large bubble white head. Aroma of a fine and floral sweet white wine. Taste is smooth white grapes, light citrus. Amazingly light and easy to drink, I never would have guessed that this one is 11%.
