Hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of grapes, spices, citrus, and light funk. Taste of pils malt, grass, spices, and tart grape in the finish.

Pours slightly hazy but bright golden with slight white head. Aroma of the grapes is there at the front although subdued initially. Taste is very sweet and my first thought was of a Belgian wit beer on steroids

The yeasty spicy grape flavor is present in aroma with some saison leathery farmyard after burn. Abv well hidden. Grapes seem pretty fresh. Body a bit light and wet despite a somewhat dry aftertaste. Body disappoints but flavor is not bad. Thought it was summer shandy without the preservatives!

Pour is a clear light yellow, lively carbonated with a two finger thick white head. Nose is of wine, and grapes dominantly. Taste is actually somewhat like a saison after reading the deScription, and has a strong grape backbone.

Draft at Coles DFH Frenzy, Buffalo NY. Straw colored pour with white head. Milder white wine aroma with light saison scent. White wine forward flavor. Pinot Gris, light cider, saisony yeastiness. Very winey. Pretty cool & flavorful offering. Enjoyable

Is it beer? More like a fizzy wine. Pours gold straw and foamy white head, Smells of wine, bubble gum, bananas. Taste is tart and tangy, not unlike champagne. Won it as a door prize, would not go out of my way to buy it, but a pleasant quaff.

Poured into a Duvel tulip from a 750ml bottle dated 2012.

A: Very clear pale yellow reminding me a lot of a pinot grigio wine. Thick white fluffy rocky head. Very nice looking.

S: Very spicey smelling at first, reminds me a lot of peppers and lemongrass. As the beer warms up a smell of sour grapes and an herbal funk comes through.

T: A slightly sweet flavor up front that goes to a very quick tartness of lemons or sour grapes and sour apples. This reminds me a lot of a semi-dry white wine, similar in ways to a champagne or a pinot grigio. This is interesting to say the least though more wine like than beer like.

M: Almost light bodied with some fizzy tongue tickling carbonation.

O: This is interesting, more wine than beer. I couldnít see myself buying this again but itís not bad.

A pale beer with little head. Fruity, vinous aroma. This has a nice spicy character, herbal, fruity, this beer has a lot of character. Apples, fruits like that. Balanced, fun, unique character. Hard to put my finger on the different elements, probably because Iím not familiar with botrytis character. Good stuff, though, nothing else quite like it.

2012.02.22 - On tap at Always Ronís. Light in color, yellow basically. Head is sticky and remains wherever it has touched. Aroma basically smells like wine to me, which is not a plus because I donít really care for wine in general. Taste is lightly tart, not as much as the Tweason. Obvious grape. Not a bad taste but not something Iíd drink a lot of.
