On tap. There was some confusion as to the labeling of this beer and the Simian Sour (possibly crossed lines). The notes for this one indicate a beer golden in color and smelled like white wine (while the other beer was brown in hue and smelled strongly of red wine). Pours with a hazed golden body with a minimal white head. Aromas are buttery, white wine, fruits, esters, grapes, candi sugar. Lightly grainy and herbal. Flavors are grainy, very fruity with a mild sweetness and a decent bitter, tannic finish. Dry, some sourness. Hints of leather and candi sugar. Oak, alcohol, a bit phenolic. Thin with light bubbles.

A: The beer pours a golden orange sort of color with a thin ring of white head. S: Doesnít smell terribly intense. Some definite wine and oak notes with a fair amount of grass and a moderate funkiness to it. Hints of vinegar, but at least it doesnít have the signature nail polish remove aroma of Drakeís sour beers. T: The flavor is quite similar to the nose. Not super intense in any way. Some grassy and mildly herbal notes along with some charred and wet oak flavors. Hints of sourness to it and a mild vinegar note. M: Medium in body with a moderate carbonation. O: The good thing about this beer is that it wasnít awful (like it could have been). But not very good either.
