Feels/tastes more like a wine than a beer. But thats not necessarily a bad thing. Probably won’t try this beer again but it’s something everyone should try once.

Best description I can give is a beer / wine hybrid. Sourness of a wine and characteristics of a sour beer. Unique and enjoyable offering from DFH.

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle, 22oz, at the brewpub. It pours a lightly hazy body, yellow in color and with no head. Some white bubbles though. It’s fruity on the nose, vinous and grape-ish, with some raisins. It’s full bodied, still sort of thin, with a low carbonation level. Citrus, grape, alcohol, green raisins and some sour, light funky notes. Lasting vinous finish. Quite lovely this one, more wine-ish than beer-ish, but still nice. 150621

AndresTM (361) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2015
Grape, grassy hops, hay, bread, and mineraly yeasty notes in the aroma. The mouthfeel is lively, with a medium-to-light body and medium effervescence. The taste is grainy, mineraly bitter and grapey sweet, with a dry finish. Paired up beautifully with shrimp sausage and grits.
