4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2013 Bottle: thanks, Doug! Semi-translucent golden amber color with a white head that fizzles to a collar quickly. Aroma is sweet grapes, lovely grape juice and white grape skins, and a slight touch of oak. Sweetness and mild tartness. Taste is tart white grapes and some sweetness along with it; grape juice, white and red grapes, mild oak, and just a very light touch of musty funk. Light oak and finishing grape dryness. Like a sour, slightly funky and oaky grape juice. Awesome.

Taste is so freaking good. It’s really two elements: that same lemony sour, and a relatively sweet white grape. But the two of them are integrated so well that I can’t imagine it being any better. Elegant and complex despite its simplicity.

Pours a slightly hazy golden with no head. Aroma is grapey, fruity. Taste is also fruity, with some grapes again and green apples. Not too acetic and more on the lactic side which is excellent. Carbonation level is good, not too high and not too low. A pretty simple offering but it worked well with me.

750 ml bottle shared with Tom and chums. Pours a veiled orange with a short lived white head. Aroma is old, tart. Flavor is orange, tropical fruit. Tart finish. For some reason, I can hardly read my notes. Might have been around a bonfire when I rated. Medium body, prickly mouthfeel. Average carbonation. Good. Not great.

Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with raisins, white grapes, oak, pineapple and lactic acid. Low carbonation. Medium body. Moderately dry mouthfeel. Winey-ish. Well balanced. Not extremely complex, but definitely enjoyable.

Pours dark golden with no head. Aroma is of fruits, sourness. Taste is of fruits, nice acidity (not too present), white wine, apple juice. Palate: Ligth body. Lacking carb. Overall: This beer as an ugly look. Not bad taste-wise!
