Pours a fairly clear, golden color. Aroma of sweet tarts, citrus, fruitiness. More big sweet, tart flavor. Not overly intense sourness, well balanced.

2012 Bottle. Pour is hazy yellow with small white head. Aroma and flavor both include notes of tartness, tropical fruit, lactic acid, wood, oak, and white grapes. Good, but simple, not much going on here besides some sour fruit and oak from the aging.

3 ounce sample from The Davis Beer Shoppe. 2012 vintage. The aroma has some solvent notes along with horse shit. Anise and black licorice is also present. Very scantly hazy yellow body with small, weak white head present. Starts with tart, acidic funkiness. Some wet hay flavors come through in the midddle. Some funky olive flavors late. Nice acidity.

Little disappointed by this one - 2012 vintage - feel like it needs some age. There is a decent grape nose but the taste was overwhelmingly like Dimetapp and fruit juice. Might have been a bad bottle.

Dug this one....light bodied tart with a distinctive light grape flavor. Good oakiness as well. Lactic fermentation is quite noticable and beer retains overall good balance.

750ml bottle, shared by a local rater. Hazy golden pale color. Thin white head, couple loose splotches of lace. Awesome bright floral citrusy nose, very oaky. Some white wine oak. Nice bigger tart taste, light sweet. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Lightly spicy tingly oaky tannic taste. Awesome, very refreshing, enjoyable sour. Alcohol very well hidden, very easy to sip.

Bottle 2011 project. Pour has a golden color with a fizzy white head that crackled right off. Aroma has white grapes, medium acidity, some light malts, and funky touches. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation is good upon pouring but fizzles away quickly. Flavor shows a lot of the grape side, sour golden base malts, medium acidity, mild oak, and a lingering finish that tries to dry out but does not quite make it. I like the big punchy white grape thing!
