Bottle shared at a sour tasting at kerenmk’s place. Hazy golden. Big vinous grapes aroma with wood, some lacto, and funk, a bit farty. Sour flavor with grapes, wine, wood, lacto, and an alcoholic touch. Medium-bodied.

Love this type, with big wine notes some fruity esters, some alcohol heat, mild phenolics. Plenty of barrel funk and Brett. Quad style defiantly comes through. Such a great balance of winery character and sour ale character.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 2012 Project. Pours hazy golden, small white head that diminishes fairly quickly leaving a ring and some lacing. Aroma is straight up white grape juice, with some funk and oak underneath. Flavor is also very white grape forward, vinous, but not really wine like, really like welch’s grape juice. Oak notes are also prominent, lending some acidity. Light plus tartness, and just enough barnyard funk to keep things interesting. Lightish body, champagne like carbonation. Pretty interesting.

Nice light amber pour. Aroma is of very strong sour grapes. Flavor matches aroma, very well balanced. I’ve tried both the 2012 and 2013 and both are very similar (although vary a bit in ABV)
