COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They say it takes a lot of good beer to make good wine, and there is an abundance of both in the Santa Ynez Valley. For this farmhouse ale, we teamed up with our neighbors at Margerum Wine Company to bring the best of both to the table. (Available in FigMtnBrew taprooms and select Whole Foods Markets in Southern California)

Type: 22oz. bottle Glass: Trappist Westvleteren XII glass From: Whole Foods in Hillcrest (San Diego), Calif. Price: $10.99 Purchased: Aug. 15, 2014 Consumed: Aug. 23, 2014 Misc.: Gold foiling on bottle top/neck 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) 3.73 84 B

Bottle. Clear dark golden color with white head. Musty, spicy white wine, dry wood, dry bread, herbal aromas. Light bodied with average co2.  Musty grape, dry wood, bready pale malt flavors with dry, earthy hoppage----nicely clean bitter finish___ tasty.

Defreni (2602) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2014
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.

StefanSD (2131) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUN 21, 2014
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.

AdamJackson (2599) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 15, 2014
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.

AirForceHops (3174) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 14, 2014
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.
