COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a beer that will make you rethink your definition of beer. It doesn’t taste like any beer you’ve ever had, yet it doesn’t taste like anything else either. Pushing the limits of brewing is what makes this job so much fun. Malted barley, wild yeast, hand picked Muscat Grapes, and French oak wine barrels are just a few of the things that went into crafting this beer. Breathe deep, take a long sip, and enjoy the creation in your hand.

Batch 4. Enjoyed at home with the wife. Pour is clear golden with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Musty, oaky, lemony, green apples, pears, light spice, and vanilla in the aroma. Taste is bbright green apples, light caramel, allspice, ,some lactic sourness, vanilla, green apples, and lemons with a medium sour finish - highly dry and effervescent. Light body with champagne-like carbonation. Refreshingly sour and the carbonation is perfect. Nice stuff.
