COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Mesa- A new school testament to the tradition of brewing beer with grapes. It is a blend of 25% Santa Lucia highland Riesling from Mer Soleil Vineyard and 75% Pilsner from Cismontane. This beer is brewed entirely with Nelson Sauvin hops. Soured with Lactobacillus to enhance the natural grape acidity and fermented with a blend of wine and beer yeast. This process highlights the flavors that beer and wine have in common. The collaboration beer made by longtime friends Charlie Wagner and Evan Weinberg.

Soapy white foam fades quickly. Clear gold. Peppery and honey aromas - slightly sweet Riesling is definitely there. Light acidity, expected more from the lacto; light lemon; no hops. Nice dryness, low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackHaddock (6085) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2016
Draft at the brewery tap in Rancho Santa Margarita on 23rd May 2016. The board said it was 40% Wine and 60% Beer, didn’t notice the grape variety or base beer. Anyway it poured a very pale, light golden colour and had no head worthy of note. It was ’winey’ in it’s aroma and taste, quite pleasant actually.

On tap at Toronado. Golden with a white head. Aroma of fruit, some yeast and malt. Drinkable but nothing special.

McNeillR (2168) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2015
Very pale golden, bit of a haze and no head - looks a bit like a cider. Nose is cidery - bright and fruit skinny with brash earthy spice. Initial taste is bright pear, blueberry and blanketed yeastiness. Carbonation is very firm and the mouthfeel is worryingly clean. Finishes clean white winey berriness and linger of peary meltedness.

Bottle pours golden yellow with a very lage white he’s that dies almost instantly. Aroma is light and fruity, definitely get the wine notes, some grassy notes in the background, seems to be a bit of lemon as well. Taste is nice and lightly tart, goes into a sweet white grape taste, nice sweet and tart balance, finishes sweet funky and dry. Very nice brew.
