750 ml. bottle pour. This was a nice suprise. I thought it was going to be much sweeter. White wineish but still good. Light grapes.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours a beautiful crystal clear yellow. Aroma is banana esters and a slight phenolic note, grapes, and white wine. Taste is more of the white wine, with the viogner grapes coming through. I really enjoyed this.

Hangover (1063) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Clear golden yellow pour with lots of active carbonation streamers and a frothy white head. Aroma is of grapes with a little bit of musty funk. Mouthfeel is smooth and carbonationed but gets tart real fast. Grape flavor, but not a purple grape flavor, more of a sour/tart ’white grape’ flavor. Some other fruity flavors in there, from the saison yeast I assume. Finish is tart and the grapiness lingers. Overall, this was a pretty cool beer. I like grape flavors and this one really tasted like the description, a champaigny, grapey beer. Excellent!

DialSquare (2845) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle from Liquor Loft. Clear yellow pour with a frothy bright white head. Aroma is lemon, rubbing alcohol, hay, wheat and belgian yeast. Tastes are saison-ish spice and then a rush of tart white grape, yeast and cloves. Strange - definitely a sipper due to the tartness. Enjoyed it overall.

TheChampion (114) - Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Pours a clear, pale golden color with lots of carbonation. Sweet grape and pale malt aroma. Taste is a mixture of white wine and a saison, very interesting.

BuckeyeSammy (543) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Best hidden alcohol I have come across. Champaign carbonation. A lot of light, sweet fruit notes. Grapes, yeast. Somewhat one dimensional, yet delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2012
750ml bottle. Pours very light - a clear pale yellow with a big creamy white head that leaves some thick lacing and continues to be fed by a stream of bubbles in the middle. Aroma is dominated by the grapes with some sweet sugary notes mixed in. The pale pilsner malts are evident but subtle. Taste is tart up front, much more tart than the aroma would suggest. The sweetness comes out more after the initial grape tartness but it’s swept away again in the finish, which is extremely similar to a white wine - dry with some boozy burn. The mouthfeel is lively with strong carbonation and has a lot of similarities to a white wine. I have to admit that the last couple of specialty brews from DFH have been disappointing so I’ve started to lower my expectations. However, this one surprised me on the positive side. Very good and very unique.

odinstyr (563) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Pours a bubbly clear pale gold with a massive white foamy head. Smells of grape - hint of champagne smells. Taste is sweet and sour - a bit of malty sweetness, followed by the sweet-sour of white wine.
