Pours clear yellow with a medium nice head. An interesting fruit beer. Good grape taste, in fact it is a lot like chardonnay white wine. Very juicy. Would be good to serve as apero or with chicken or fish. Couleur jaune claire avec un collet blanc moyen. Intéressante bière fruitée. Bon goût de raisin, en fait ça ressemble beaucoup à du chardonnay blanc. Texture juteuse. Doit être excellente en apéro ou pour acompagner du poulet ou du poisson.

Shared at WTWBA 2012, Brooklyn. The aroma is malty, pilsner-like, grassy, sweet corn, white wine. The appearance is clear gold, white head. The flavor is sweet, corn, wine, lemon. The finish has the sweetness of a pale lager, corn, some dry white wine. Unexpected. Not bad overall.

Sipping on this right now... Pours a clear gold with thin white head, looks just like your typical american light lager. Aroma is very reminiscent of a wine, as is the flavor. Lots of grape flavor, very dry.

Bottle at WtWBA Brooklyn 2012. Pours a light yellow body with white lacing. Aroma is plain malts and light fruity esters. Mouthfeel is dry, plain and a bit boring.

Bottle. The pour was a sparkling clear golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that diminished rapidly, leaving behind a light film with a medium collar and some pretty good sticky lacing. The aroma was on the funky side with a mild hay malt and a musty Belgian yeast with notes of white grapes, green apple, a mild white wine and just a slight hint of alcohol. The taste was sweetly tart with a nice note of grapes and malt early on, progressing into an almost sour funky taste with a big dose of yeast and a strong wine characteristic. The flavor stuck around for a nice long while, letting the tart yeasty wine flavor linger on the taste buds for a good long time. Mouthfeel was light in body and nice and dry in texture with a good strong prickly carbonation. Overall a very unique brew, a mix of wine and beer that was done so superbly that it gives it an almost champagne like quality with the body and flavor of an excellent Farmhouse Ale. Be warned this is one to be careful of; it has a 9% ABV that is virtually unnoticeable in the taste…
