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.

Bottle - thanks Knobbyknobby! Pours hazy golden with a small white head that dissipates slowly leaving a ring that laces well. Aroma is funk, lemon, white grape, fruity, Taste is the same, fruity and funky up front with some sweetness, but quickly drying out and leading to a bone dry, champagnelike finish, with some woody notes coming through along with a touch of astringency from the barrel. Medium body, silky smooth mouthfeel. Quite a nice beer.

TheHOFF43 (1725) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle at RBSG. Pour is yellow, mostly clear. Lots of lemon and some grapes on the nose. Tart, wine like taste, but less carbonated. Dry, woody. Needed some water it was so dry. Sour, but not overly so. Really enjoyable.

Bottle @ JetsonFest III, courtesy of foppa78. Thanks so much, Matt! Pours a hazy yellow orange appearance with not much head. Sort of has a rubbery/plastic note to the nose along with some tropical fruit, grapes, and oak. Tangy, sort of lightly sweet malty, vanilla, chewy oak, light grape, pear, somewhat sweet, tart flavor. Kind of cool though I didn’t particularly care for the aroma.

Golden and hazy pour. It is very lacto-forward medium to low funk, vinous, fruity, nice.

gEUS (982) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2013
375 ml bottle shared with Yves Panneels. Pours intense straw yellow with a small white head. Citrussy and spice aromas, light body (a tad too much sourness) and citrus peel in the taste. Nice sour, but less comples than e.g. the Rosso e Marrone

Opened batches 2 & 5 next to each other. 5 was far superior, so I'm reviewing that one. B5 was bursting with flavor whereas the b2 was way over-carbed, mildly flavorful, and a touch watery overall. Golden, hazy pour; rich white grapes and oak spring from the glass. Citric, mildly funky, fruity & oaky with a healthy sour kick. A well-refined American sour that needs to be brewed on a larger scale. So sad this was my last bottle :(

batch 2+5 opened side by side.... both poured a hazy yellow with very little head. batch 2: the carb was off the charts. flavor was very soft, nice sweetness coming through from the grapes mixed with oak. Batch 5: significantly more sour than batch 2. less carb, more well rounded and enjoyable.
