Pours a bright golden yellow with fizzy head. Aromas of citrus peel, yeast, hay, and some funk. Flavors of sour grapes, some woody notes, and some funky yeast.

@ Cascade 16-3-9: kanske lite intetsägande med en halvsöt svag fatton. Ok men inget mer.

On tap at Cascade. Golden with a small head. Kind of relaxed with grape, light oak and some white wine. The finish was medium sour.

2012 bottle tasting. Not what I was hoping for. Has aroma and flavors of those round candy buttons you have to bite off the shiny paper when you were a kid and didn’t even know how bad of a candy it is. There’s obviously some white wine stuff going on here but it’s ruined.

2012 pours golden orange, minimal head. Lightly sour, white wine, light oak, funk. Medium body, minimal carb, quick finish.

baraciisch (2687) - California, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Clear dark golden in color... Aroma of Belgian biscuit malts, candi sugar, white wine grapes, oak, citrus... Flavor is fruity and citrusy up front, gives way to vinous undertones, light white wine on palate... Enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The Vine ’13, on draft at the barrel house in Aug 2014 with Erica and Matt. Light gold pour with very washy lacing on the glass. There is a wheaty aroma and it’s there on the palate as well. Yeasty sourness to it, not tart or acidic really. I described it as a solid "hefe-like" (?) sour.

ajnepple (4661) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Draft pour at Tap And Handle. Clear bronze appearance with a small white head. Aroma of acidity, fruity esters, light candy sugar, caramel malt, toffee, light oak, vanilla and banana bread. Similar flavor, mildly sour with a light herbal bitterness. Medium to full body with soft carbonation, a smooth creamy feel and a light puckering finish. Complex and fun to drink.

gEUS (1663) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden with a quickly vanishing head. Nose is a weird combination of malt and... Red Bull (I kid you not). Some peach as well. Medium body, quite sweet and a bit sour, and some tannins - interesting. Unagreeable and unnatural red bull flavours coming back. Mèh.
