3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this at the brew pub. This beer seemed to be blurring the lines between wine and beer. Tea colored, dull yellow. Aroma of flowers and white grapes. Light bodies. Dry sweeter white wine, I taste more the Viognier grapes then pinot gris. Alcohol was aparent. Enjoyed this one, definitely a different type of beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap at the brewpub in DE. Pours a straw blonde with a thin white head. Tart wine notes in the aroma with hints of lemon. Medium to full mouth feel with a slight creamy mouthfeel. Nice tart notes on the palate that stay with you for a while. The perfect blend of a saison and sour. Wish this was brewed and distributed seasonally. Superb. Overall: (A)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: Draft at the Rehoboth brewpub. It pours a clear, light gold color with a small, foamy, white head. The nose has some sweet white wine notes. The flavor has a strange white wine/light beer thing going on. The alcohol is very present. The viognier grapes are a nice touch and definitely stand out. Light in body with average carbonation leading to a slightly hot, grapey finish. Interesting, but not one I would get again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from the tap at EBF. Poured a clear pale yellow with a white head that lasted and laced slightly. Aroma had a lot of earthy/doughy funk with some sour grape notes and earthy grains. Flavor was extremely funky with earthy and dough notes as well as slightly tart grapes and a dry finish. Definitely different and funk heavy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Cloudy yellow with a thin, fizzly looking white head. Aroma is tart from the start. The heavy white grape scent reminds me of drinking sparkling white grape juice on New Year’s as a kid. There’s also a musty, earthy presence to this one. Flavor is sweet white grape juice, with dry sourness to the finish that becomes more noticeable the longer you drink it. Very wine-like, similar to the Midas Touch. I wont say this is my favorite beer ever, but it was quite unique and thoroughly enjoyable.
