COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a beer that will make you rethink your definition of beer. It doesn’t taste like any beer you’ve ever had, yet it doesn’t taste like anything else either. Pushing the limits of brewing is what makes this job so much fun. Malted barley, wild yeast, hand picked Muscat Grapes, and French oak wine barrels are just a few of the things that went into crafting this beer. Breathe deep, take a long sip, and enjoy the creation in your hand.

Batch 002, bottle. Pours a very light, peach color that is absolutely beautiful and I’ve never seen in a beer. Aroma is very tropical and quite unique. Not too sour or funky, but the acidity is very nice. Flavor is strong and reminds me a bit of the temptation I just finished, with a lot of the muscat grapes coming through. Finish is very dry.

weihenweizen (2943) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Refrigerated 12.7 oz. brown bottle poured into a tulip. Clear golden with very little white head. Aroma is slightly tart oak, medium body, low carbonation, and no lacing. Taste is tart white grape, oak, and white wine. Good, but expected to like this more.

ABUSEDGOAT (2538) - California, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Haven’t had a Captain Lawrence beer since (I think) 2007, what a pleasant surprise to say the least. Hazy orange/yellow color, moderate head, some lace/retention. Aroma is barnyard action, oak barrel, vanilla, tart, acidic, yeast, grape. Medium bodied, acidic, tart (not overly so - really nice balance of flavors) with of course brett with some barrel sweetness to round it out.

Mep3222 (1157) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Lactic sour, oaky Woody, dry grape, white wine aroma and flavor. Not too sour, maybe 4 or 5 of 10 sour and virtually all lactic, but with a little earthy funk in the finish. Carbonation dies fast. Really complex and balanced and a solid sour. A notch below the greats I think with the low dying carbonation and the earthy funk in the finish ( but the earthy funk does compliment the dry oaky white wine and balances with the lactic sour, the earthy funk balance may be a benefit for some... And the more I drink the more I like the balance the slight funk provides). Bumping up a notch the more I have. So complex and so good, only negative now is the lack of carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared at tasting. Light yellow pour. Nice funky tart aroma. Taste follows. This is really well balanced between the tart and funk. Great stuff.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 29, 2016
375ml bottle, big thanks to phaleslu for sharing. I got the last 3-4oz. 2015 batch. Wow. Awesome smell. Big, funky, mildly cheesy, oaky nose, with a nice amount of grape character. Hazy golden color. Ring of white head. Some bits of lace. Wow, great flavor too. Awesome moderate to bigger sour taste, moderate sweet. Just a very mild spicy bite. Medium-plus body, mild chewiness to it. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Mild dry in the finish. Awesome funky aftertaste. Very nice sour.

375 ml bottle via trade - thanks again, Charlie! 2015 vintage. Pours a hazy gold with almost no head. Aroma of white wine, lemon juice, oak, herbs and spices, dusty grains, plum skins, wildflowers - really sharp and fresh and tart. Flavor of white wine, plums, lemon, wet hay, grass, mild spices, vanilla, wildflowers, apple, funk, and tannins. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a fruity, vinous, funky, tart mouthfeel that starts cleaner and muddles up over time. Really good but I was picky on this one since I’ve been excited for it for a long time. The flavor and mouthfeel just don’t deliver like they could, especially based on the aroma.
