split a bomber, clear, golden in color, hints of fruity flavors in smell. lightly sour, more tart, definitely picking up fruity saoson flavors, maybe because of the 9%abv. medium to light body, dry finish. Good balance, overall a tasty brew.

pours a crips light hazy apricot. strong smell of grapes. sweet grape juice, nice sour funk, good carb drinks more like a reisling wine than beer but none the less it was delicious to share, probably too sweet for me to drink more than a glass.

750 ml bottle @ vPBF 2012.
Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma is very close to a white wine with grapes and some wood. Flavour of dry grapes, malts, floral hops, orange and some tartness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a dryish, vineous, grape-like finish. Very close to a white wine.

Pours clear light yellow with a tiny head.
Aroma of light fruity notes, some berries, hints of grapes and spices.
Taste is fruity and spicy with notes of white wine, grapes, apples, yeast and earthy notes
Finish is sweetish and spicy with white wine notes. A bit unbalanced, reminds me a lot more of a white wine than a beer.

75 cl bottle @ vPBF, bottled 2012
Quite pale appearance. Aroma feels like a pale lager with grainy malt and hints of butter. Also hints of yeast and citron. Flavour is rather tart and somewhat sour with very strong white wine notes and some sour apples. A disappointment.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750, capped. Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a nice dense creamy white head. Solid eggy lace. Mild bright vinous lemony nose, clearly influenced by the white wine grapes, but still fairly subdued. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Lemony tang, sweet floral notes, almost dandelion-esque, showing plenty of white wine on the mid palate. Enjoyable, and actually rather well done, but skewing a bit too heavily toward the sweet.
