From notes. Tasted from a "ghost bottle" at the East Nashville Beer Festival in March of 2013. Pours hazy bright orange with a thin white head that leaves uneven lace. The nose is a pretty unique blend of more traditional spicy yeast, nice and floral, just like Riesling, and a nice bit of funky botrytis, along with some caramel malt. The flavor is a bit sweet, but it is nicely balanced by brett and botrytis funk. It is very cool how all of these flavors meld together. The body is full with almost Champagne-like sparkling carbonation and a long funky, somewhat sweet, vinous finish.

Sample at SBWF 2013. Hazy orange with a white head. Aroma and taste of dried fruit, malt, toffee, light spices, notes of wood and brett. An interesting beer. I am glad that I got the chance to try it.

More still in carb than the rose which I like. It is like drinking a straight Riesling.

thirdeye11 (5634) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2013
(750ml bottle) tepid gold, no real bubbles. Nose is quite woody, mossy cellar floor, floral, old books, musty, mint. Taste is pretty sweet, woody, mossy, Brett, grape must, complex and lightly carbonated, alcohol is prevalent in this to a greater degree than the Rosé.

Jow (2266) - New York, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Tap at Brewers Choice. Pours hazy orange with nice sweet nose of fruit candy. tastes of caramel, floral, tropical fruit, yeast, certainly some sweet riesling notes. boozy warming on finish.

auerbrau (3179) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 20, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2013 750mL Bottle, poured by Garrett Oliver at Beervana - Cranston, RI. Insanely complex aroma, mashing together a myriad of spice and white fruit. It really has this fresh, singular earthy almost sandalwood spice tone to the aroma and the onset of the flavor. The effervescent body of this beer crackles and sparkles along with the bright whiteness of this beer. I’m just really stunned and blown away by the totally new flavors and dimensions of fruitiness and spiciness that are coming from the natural lees and that wonderful warm touch of botrytized grape. I went back for multiple samples this was so good. Best beer of the night, for sure.

Off-dry, medium body and bitterness, slightly low CO2. Spicy, yeasty taste, with an acidic, funky touch, grapes, citrus peel, wood, malt, caramel, hops, vanilla. (2012-06-13)

Bottle courtesy of Garrett Oliver via Warren. Thanks! Aroma has some wood, wine and a bit of funky notes. Not quite brett funk but an odd almost rotten aroma. Flavor is very similar. A little spice, wood and yeast. A bit off balance and lingers on my tongue a bit. Had this about two years ago so maybe it just needed time to age. Would love to try again.
