Poured a honey, straw, hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of rocky white head, which thinned out fairly quick. Average spotty lacing long the sides of the glass. Below average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.62)
Smelled boozy, skunky malts, corn, grass, honey, bread, cereal, green grapes and green apple. (Smell - 3.35)
Tasted better than the smell with the similar characteristics. Got green apple, kiwi, green grapes, grassy notes, cereal, corn, cloves, faint bubblegum, some oakiness, tropical notes and some unknown spices. (Taste - 3.81)
Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, slightly fruity finish. Crisp and refreshing. (Feel - 4.11)
This beer had its moments. The good news is that the taste and feel was the best part. Got better as it went down. (Overall - 3.77)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fad: Taster pĺ bryggeriet. Lysegul klar řl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er gćret hvor druerne tydeligt anes. Smagen er lidt ensidig med masser af druesaft. God bitterhed gřr det til en fin řl.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow-gold color with a small white head that soon dissipates to a fine film. The aroma medium in strength with yeasts, juicy-fruit gum and citrus. The taste mirrors the aroma with more juicy fruit type gum, lemons, grapes, and sweet biscuit. The palate is light but effective and the carbonation is soft. Finishes short and sweet. Overall: very tasty saison.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy pale gold. Grape must nose, lemon and gingerbread. Slightly sweet and tannic. Very much a malty white wine sort of nose. Grapey winey taste. Decent tartness but a malty presence. Thing finish. Very refined. Nothing really crazy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Adam Jackson, thanks buddy! Clear yellow with lasting head in a snifter. Aroma and flavor is very subtle and elegant. Nose of light grain, hay and traces of white grapes.
Flavor is really what the brewery wanted to put out. A beer, white wine hybrid, almost like if a white grape and yeast with malt had sex and produced a child. Upfront is white grape with a subtle oak note. The base of the brew is grain and pale malts, very weak hints of yeast. The texture finishes dry with hints of oak and grape. Delightfully quaffable.
