4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2014 Bottle: 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 Welch’s grape juice. Awesome!

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

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.

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

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
