JDBaker11058 (1205) - Maryland, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Appearance: clear medium gold, with a short, fizzy white head and syrupy legs. Aroma: light citrus, yeast, pears, saltine crackers, and a bit of funk. Taste: sweet, with flavors of white grape juice, citrus, grains, pepper, star anise, white wine and champagne. Finish: dry, tart, slightly sour, with a lingering light astringency. Notes: Smells like a saison, tastes almost like a tripel, finishes like a chardonnay. Very interesting.

TheGB (500) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Pours golden with a dense white head. Amazing aroma cloves, orange, lychee, spicy malt and hops. Light bodied with a smooth, fruity palate. Light and perfumey kinda like a Belgian tripel with significant fruitiness from the wine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Blairgus (2551) - California, USA - MAR 23, 2012
23 mar 2012, bottle. Very pale yellow, clear, steady tiny bubbles. Smells like a saison: lightly sweet and straw. Thin body and fizzy. Wow, not what I expected. Champaign and soft white grape juice. Crisp, a but sweet, and dry finish. Rather nice. Smells like a saison but tastes completely different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear pale gold with fluffy white head. Nose is grape juice, blueberries, light malts, some tartness and yeast. Green grape entry with some pear and apples, yeasty notes also coming through with very light malts. Finishes slightly tart and some alcohol. Actually pretty tasty.

Aroma grainy malty feel, soft Noble hop, aromatic with mild touch of chamomile. Soapy walls.
Appearance bright golden look with medium plus bright white top. Nice lace shown. 4+
Flavor and Palate : some tartness, berry like in character. Tart walls. Soapy late finish. OK but not particular to my taste.

A very different and unique fruit beer, Noble Rot pours a very clear and light golden color with a big white head that leaves some really nice lacing around the glass. Concerning just the color, you could have a hard time picking this out from a mass-produced light swill. The nose features white grapes, yeast, light bread, wheat and a touch of alcohol. The body feels a little spritzy with lots of carbonation. The flavors are sweet, with notes of grapes, alcohol, wheat, barley, lemon, grass and light hops. The finish is very sweet, pushing the line toward sour, too. There is also a truck-load of grapes in the finish. Don’t let the sweet appearance and taste fool you, though, because this beer will sneak up on you quick at 9%!

boFNjackson (4100) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle... Poured clear golden with a fizzy white head. Nice mouthfeel, soft on the palate and a little drying. Very vinous, much like white wine with a yeast character. Tart grapes, a hint of acidity. Some candied sweetness and grape juice sweetness.

PorterPounder (5346) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 750 ml capped bottle. Sparkling medium golden champagne-like pour with a soft snow white head that leaves sticky lacing and has unending bubble action. Aroma has champagne notes, some white grape juice and a hint of yeast. Flavor like the aroma has a hint of champagne, some enticing sourness, a bit of yeast, brief hints of muted citrus and saffron-like spiciness. Mouthfeel has just the right amount of spritz - excellent texture. Impressive.
