No date, but I bought the bottle from the barrel room in 2010. Smells a bit like lemon rind with a bit of funk thatís mildly horseblankety. Taste is more tart lemon and yogurt but there is a weird briney thing going on also. Maybe a bit of white grape juice also, but much less than I remember it being fresh. Reminds me of a a beefed-up tricked-out Berliner weiss.

Experiment_Ale (913) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2014
At cascade brewpub with Taylor, Stephen, and Dina. Pours light orange with almost no head. Aroma is straight grape juice. Taste is straight wenches grape juice. You could literally give this to a 10 year old with their pbj for lunch and they would no know the difference except for color. Sparking well heís cider. Alcohol is completely hidden, I would think this is non alcoholic if I didnít know better.

vyvvy (3904) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at the brewpub - Pours pale golden yellow with a white head. The aroma has rich berries, lots of grape, rich cotton candy, black currents and raspberries. It has a medium rich body with soft carbonation. The flavor begins with lots of white grape, chardonnay, mild oak, full maltiness and fairly rich. The finish has some alcohol, lots of white grape and white wine character. Interesting and enjoyable.

maxwelldeux (3496) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2014
2012 project, bottle. Pours a clear copper color with almost no head on it whatsoever. Nose is definitely sour, with grape and oak elements really being salient. Taste actually isnít too sour, and has a nice fruity bite to it, like a dry champagne. Really interesting.

Bottle poured into tulip glass. Pours a hazy gold color with moderate head but persistant carbonation. Aroma is predominately grape with some mild funk. Taste is reminiscent of grape drink with some tartness and light funk.

Cloudy gold pour. Aroma of muscat grapes, brine. Tastes the same with puckering mid sourness. Also some super saccharine sweetness in there. Very approachable.

Nice example of a sour...comes on very tart with tastes of cherry and citrus with oak and a hint of vinegar hovering in the background. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VinegarStroke (267) - Napa, California, USA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle (750ml): Project 2012. Cloudy, honey gold with little head that dissipates and no lace. Clean aroma. Candy grapes. Lactic and slightly bretty but not animal. Dry to off dry, sour and not bitter. Fresh citrus and loads of synthetic grape flavor. Bright, rich and long. Clean sour and loads of flavor. Lovely sour beer.
