4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
