PorterPounder (5699) - 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.

750ml bottle. Pours a super light pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is some white grape, spicy notes, crisp pale malt, light vanilla note, light fruit. Flavor is really nice crisp grape and champagne note with a light tartness and some of that saison spice note coming through. Finishes with a fruitier character and some ;lingering pale malt. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Can’t believe this is 9 percent abv, very drinkable and refreshing well done for an out there concept

This is wine. There is some malt backing it in there somewhere but lots of white grape aromas and flavors mingle in. An easy-drinker,a good job of blending the two main ingredients. I guess I didn’t read the label b/c it says Voignier but I was expecting red grapes of some variety.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Draft at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Clear light straw body, thick puffy off-white head. Funky, tart nose with grape, clove, and hints of bubblegum; phenolic and wheaty. Body tart, sweet and sour, dominated by complex grape and grapeskin notes with punchy alcohol and phenols, backed by biscuity wheat and a touch of clove. Unusual and enjoyable.

750ml bottle. Really didn’t know what to expect from this one. Aroma of champagne, grapes, and citrus. Crisp taste somewhat like a chardonnay, apples, saison, some hops. I enjoyed this one more as I worked my way through the bottle. Overall an awesome offering.

Pours clear pale golden, fluffy white head that persists. Looks like sparkling white wine with dense lacing when you swish the glass. Nose is clean, white grapes, citrus, cotton candy, must. Taste is cotton candy, esters, white grapes. Finish is tart and dry on a medium finish. Unique ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

coolfunnj (323) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2012
aroma of white wine, yeast ,and a bit of citrusy hops way in the background...appearance clear yellow gold with pure white dissipating head some lacing..tastes mostly like white wine with a bit of spice and just a tingle of hops a nice flavor simce i like wine too but fairly unexpectedly tilts toward the wine rather than ale side..thin on the palate lightly carbonated leaves a semi dry white wine aftertaste..overall,at first taste i though "oh brother" but it does have a way of making you like it as you sip it..a cool novelty and i might try again more of a wine than an ale though id say

Steve_0 (2874) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Poured bright gold, with a small bright white head. Good lacing, smells of bread, yeast, champagne, grape, and funk. Taste is clean and crisp, with a light bitter finish. I don’t get much of the grape until the aftertaste. This beer is really different and reminds me more of a sparkling wine/champagne. Good beer, worth a try.
