Poured from a 750ml bottle hazy straw color, thin white head. Smell is sharp with white wine aromatics. Taste is a great balance of Belgian phenolics and white wine, light body lively carbonation makes the finish pretty dry. Really nice beer.

Beer with an acidic grape bite. I like the aged white wine flavor on the palate. I also got a really good deal on a +1pt at jungle Jim's.

Pours a hazy lighter golden color with white head. Yeast, citrus, grape must, and some floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes pretty dry for a saison.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Transfer from BA on 2-26-12 -
Served in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a sparkling clear straw gold color with a light head. The head faded very fast leaving just a slight film on the top of the beer and a very mild amount of lacing on the glass.
Smell – Smell of grapes and a bit of sourness meet the nose. There is some yeastiness that mixes in as well.
Taste- The taste starts out a little bit sweeter; like a sweet white wine; Moscato like. They consist mainly of grape flavors mixed with a bit of lemony citrus and some other lighter fruit flavors. As the taste progresses it gets a bit more sour and bitter and turns more dry white wine like.
Mouthfeel – Rather thin body with a moderate level of carbonation. Very white wine like and fitting for the taste profile of the brew.
Overall – It was an alright beer, but a bit too much on the side of wine. If I want wine I will drink wine thanks.

750 ml bottle. Pours a clear, pale straw gold with a thin fizzy white head that was gone by the first sip and left no lace. Pleasant aroma of grape and yeast. The description on the bottle calls this a "sort of Saison", but I thought it looked and tasted more like a Berlinner Weisse. The flavor is pale malt, grapes, yeast, mild sourness, and a touch of mild funk. Very nice! Spritzy on the palate. Light in body. Enjoyable.

18-MAY-2014, bottle @home, from Whole Foods, P Street, Georgetown.
Clear golden with lacing White head. Aroma is yeast, spice, and grapes.
Fantastic taste. Funk, straw, grapes, fruit. Very sauternes-like .Dry but clearly also sweet.
So long aftertaste of all the fruity/spicy/funky stuff. Noble rot is evident. I really enjoyed this.
