Draft at Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford ct. Looks like an American macro beer with white lacing throughout the pint. This is a crisp and bubbly beer with white wine, pear, lime and sourdough notes. Alcohol provides a nice bite similar to the sensation of a good pilesner. Good experiment by dogfish head

Sample from the Odense crew, thanks. Clear pilsner colored body with a tiny white head. Aroma is sweet apples, sweet grapes, pilsner like malt. Flavor is like retsina, fruity, notes of yeast. Quite interesting beer. I like it.

Christian (11202) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2012
Pale golden with a big and lasting white head. On first impression a pilsner-like aroma with herbal hops, but also fruity notes and a nice mineral note. Dry and tart flavour with lots of white wine character, spicy notes, and some warming alcohol. Takes some effort to appreciate the complexity, but it’s a winner

Very interesting. The wine grapes dominate the nose and this is a beautiful clear, golden color. The palate shows melon and apples. The wine is really The primary component here, save the carbonation. Long, apple finish. Dangerous at the Abv level as this goes down quite easily.

portableparty (1919) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle from RamyG4. Pours golden yellow with a white soapy head that leaves a sticky lacing. Aroma has signs of grapes and cider with a faint tartness and yeast. Taste starts tart and acidic with strong grape an apples and just a bit of funk. Palate is thin with a lively carbonation and a drying finish. Very enjoyable and refreshing.

Bottle. Pours very champagne-like, clear light golden with a huge white head. Aroma is sweet, lightly sour, some hops, citrus, and spice, smells like a cross between champagne and a tripel. Taste is also quite similar to champagne, with some maltiness. Lightly dry, tart finish. Light bodied, highly carbonated. Interesting.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - APR 28, 2012
(750 ml (2012) from Tully’s) Pale-lagerish pale yellow. Mostly clear. Big, frothy, sticky off-white head. Aroma is weak, barely a trace of any fruit or grape, just weak, papery maltiness. Palate is smooth and soft. Flavor is sour - bad, fruity sour with some spice and bad papery maltiness. Kind of awful.

Tap @ Pinocchio’s Yellow/golden with large foamy white head. Nose of white wine, mild hops, and a bit of funk. Flavor is rather sweet, white wine, light malt and mild hops with a nice sour nip. Very interesting but a bit sweet for me.

Nice golden wheat-like color coming out of the bomber bottle, with a lot of carbonation and head. Has a pleasant smell from the grapes that gives it a robust, fruity smell. The "sort of saison" tastes strongly of the fruit and malt, giving it a belgian-like characteristic. Overall, a nice little specialty brew in Dogfish’s arsenal.
