Light yellow with frothy white head... Aroma of citrus fruits... Flavor is earthy like a saison initially but has dominant notes of citrus, finish of white wine and maybe slightly sour yeast... Nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Poured straw yellow. Lots of carbonation. Yeasty, grape nose. Was akin to a champagne. Fruity, bubbly. Champagne yeast? Not my favorite but more than drinkable.

This was pretty solid stuff. Hazy golden beer with a frothy, white head. Aromas of grapes and some sour funk. Beer is effervescent and lively with noticeable carbonation. Tastes of champagne, some sour grapes, assorted tart fruits and some barnyard flavors. Sour, yet light, finish. While this is fruity it definitely is more of a saison. Easy to drink, crisp and refreshing. I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would.

Fruit beer? Certainly a saison. Pours a very pale yellow with a fizzy white head. Looked like an adjunct lager but hazier and a head with character. Aroma: musty, vinous, grape skin, slight barnyard funk. Very interesting beer.

Grapes in the nose, slightly soured. I get a little vanilla, maybe marshmallowy texture. Nice palate, thin finish. Took alittle warming up, I’m pretty satisfied.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours pale yellow with medium fluffy white head, and some lacing, Light body, medium carbonation, and light floral aroma. Taste is floral, some grain, hint of grapes, spicy yeast, hint of alcohol, and finishes dry. Reminds me of a dry white wine, dry mead, or dry saison. Not very fruity for a fruit beer.

Bottle from the store. No, seriously, from the grocery store across the street from my house, and if they carry it, it’s probably garbage juice. Pours exactly like bud light. Pale straw yellow, fizzy carbonation. Smells pretty similar too. Sweet hay, some adjuncts. Tastes pretty much the same as well. Where the hell is the noble rot? Where is the funk? Where is the sour? This is just malt liquor, disguised as a $10 bottle. If they would have the balls to just call this a malt liquor, I’d give it a higher rating. But since they’re hiding behind the facade of "noble rot", I can’t help but shit all over this. Fuck this over priced garbage juice.

this is the worst beer I’ve had all year
