Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2014
Keg at 5 Horses Tavern. Pours a very pale gold, half inch white head that fades to nothing. Average lacing. Aroma is quite light - some sour cherries, some light caramel, light malts. Taste is fantastic, Super delicate sweetness and floral bitterness matches well with medium sour. Not too tart, nice lightly sour finish, medium body, sparkling carbonation. Delicious.

patrick767 (3717) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 9, 2014
bottle at Ft Wayne tasting Sep 14 2013 - The aroma of this brew is mainly grapes along with some Belgian style yeast. Itís a light straw color with a small, white fuzzy head. The flavor is very interesting. Itís lightly sweet, bubbly, and has tart grapes. Thereís a dry character that carries into the finish. Itís very easy to drink. Quite good.

Pleasant spicy white wine on the nose. Flavor is really just a Belgian golden with wine sweetness and a just a touch of dust. Was hoping for more funk and less sweet. Not impressed!

Rando7 (768) - Iowa, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle pours clear yellow with one finger bubbly white head. Saison-like aroma with Belgian yeast, light fruits, grapes. Taste matches with vinous notes, grapes, bread, slightly tart. Palate full. Clean finish, doesnít descend into the dull astringent finish as you sometimes find in beers of similar flavor. Didnít notice the hops at all. Didnít know what to expect but I liked it.

Super carbonated, a nice small bubble head, that lasted for a few minutes, then settles to a thin coating on top that get replenished from below, wonderful lacing. The nose is tart and citrusy with a bit of farmhouse in there. Front is pils and tart grape with a wonderful long lasting tartish hop finish. There is a hint of lemony wheat beer that went to a really great french bistro for a while in the middle. Not nearly as sweet as I thought it would be. An unbelievably quaffable brew, I am having a hard time not gulping this down. Each sip demands another.

valpoaj (660) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Tap pour - comes to table a clear yellow with no real head to speak of. Aroma is tart, but citrusy - lemon, hint of bittering hops, white wine like. Flavor is, well, interesting, but quite good! Starts off with some generalized sweetness, but quickly turns into an amalgamation of all sorts of styles - the saison aspect is most forward - very dry flavor with spices and a yeasty feel, but thereís also an underlying hoppiness, and an almost berliner-like tartness/dryness to the flavor. Palate is dry, but keeps you coming back for more. I really dug this beer, and although I donít feel it really conforms to the ífruit beerí style, would seek this one out again - exceeded expectations!

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014
750ml bottle served in a pint glass A - Pours a pale shiny yellow with a thin white cap. S - Earthy, spoiled grapes, minerals, dry yeast, salty, T - Sweeter than the nose describes, crisp white grape juice, has a soft lemon tartness to it along with a dash of salt. Peppery yeast and earthy minerals in the middle along with some herbal hops adds dryness and continues to a dull grape tartness on the finish. M - Moderate spritzy carbonation, creamy at first but thins out quickly. Dry finish. An odd beer for sure. Like a white wine and beer mixer. It has snappiness upfront but develops into a dull chardonnay like finish. I canít believe that this is 9%ABV! It doesnít show at all. It was unique but I didnít love it as much as I thought I would.
