gEUS (1671) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2016
bottle. Pours clear ruby red, with nearly no head. Incredibly subtle aroma of freshly squeezed grapes, pinot noir alike character from north of Burgundy / south of Alsace, clean, cherries, some green notes from "raffles". Light body, lightly sour but loads of tannin tartness coming from the grapes. This is going very close to a petnat ("pétillant naturel") wine, sublte and great in its simplicity. This is what real "sour ales" (as in not lambics) should be about rather than those overly sour beers.

phaleslu (8969) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle shared by djd07 at the hotel lobby fart share. Thanks again, DJ! Pours a cloudy ruby color with a small white head that settles into a ring. Notes of vanilla, oak, grapes, florals, wild berries, spice, and wheat. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tart, floral mouthfeel. Another solid one.

Marheb (4206) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 3, 2016
(En fût à la brasserie): Raisins juteux, framboises, prunes, délicats tannins et une sécheresse délicate dans ce qui se boit comme un vin aérien avec son alcool bien camouflée. Sublime.

vtafro (5919) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2015
Bottle thanks Pete. Ruby purple beer. Smells like straight Tempranillo wine grapes and a touch of funk. Taste like the wine grapes with a touch of carbonation and tart/funkiness. Very dry.
