750ml bottle @ vPBF

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.

Pours hazy pale golden color with small head. Aroma of yeast, herbs, yeast, spice notes, some citrus fruits and some white wine notes. Flavor of white wine, citrus fruits, grape fruit, herbs and grass. Very dry palate and very white wine dominant. Odd.

after4ever (6635) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 20, 2012
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.

Bottle shared with Yanick. Pours clear gold with white head. Nose/taste of grape seed, peaches, white grapes, wheat malt, banana and apple. Medium body.

criley2 (40) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Feels/tastes more like a wine than a beer. But thats not necessarily a bad thing. Probably won’t try this beer again but it’s something everyone should try once.

KyotoLefty (7452) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 13, 2012
Draught at The Old Toad Dogfish Head Fest 5. Very pale gold with no head. Nose of grape, must, dust. Think and dry, with flavors of grape, wine, apples, light hops. Like the mixture of a dry white wine with a dry cider. Nicely fruity. Enjoyable and unique.
