Bright clear paleish gold beer. Good white head. Mildly sour grapey nose. Palate is fresh and crisp. Mildly tart grape with a whisper of orange. Minerals. Finishes dry and winey. This really does come over as a tart white wine. Would love to give this to snooty wine drinkers and see what they made of it! Super inventive - even by Dogfish Head standards!

Oakes (12633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2012
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 I’m not familiar with botrytis character. Good stuff, though, nothing else quite like it.

Christian (11131) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2012
Pale golden with a big and lasting white head. On first impression a pilsner-like aroma with herbal hops, but also fruity notes and a nice mineral note. Dry and tart flavour with lots of white wine character, spicy notes, and some warming alcohol. Takes some effort to appreciate the complexity, but it’s a winner
