Pours a light golden yellow with a frothy white top. Aroma is slightly fruity with distinct grain backing. Taste is light and fruity but nothing interesting. At the 2012 Winterlude Winter Beers and Wines.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2014
500ml bottle. Poured a hazy yellow color with a smaller sized head. White wine, grapes, and fruity. Definitely dominated by the white wine concentrate.

Goldorak (439) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
Sampled at the Mondial 2005.

Like apricot juice, with a thin, whipped cream head (the color, not the consistency). Not much of a fruit smell, the yeast came out big time though, like sourdough bread. Some freshly cut green apple flavor, yeasty, mouthfeel is a little vinous and finishes off crisp like Bacchus’s nectar, but after a while it kinda tasted more like Welsh’s white concord grape juice. Not bad, not great.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 15, 2005
On draught at Mondial, 6/5/05. Deep shimmering, goldenrod colored beer, head quickly recedes to nothing and the body is fairly still. Aroma is lightly peachy and has some pear skins, apple pulp, white grapes and a bit of sweet malt. Flavor is lightly acidic up front, with a drying, earthy grapes and golden apples flavor that is rather dry and acidic. Light malt sugars give some sweetness, while the body is very thick, syrupy-like and viscous. Lightens up a bit on the finish, with some floral notes, more peachy-chardonnay flavors and a bit of sourish yeast. Odd beer, but for as much as I dislike chardonnay, I actually sort of enjoyed this one. Medium body, very low carbonation, as mentioned, but the flavor sticks to the palate fairly well, wine is not overdone.

bouteille brune de 750ml, capsule de métal, blonde trouble, nez fermé, bouche un peu fade, correct sans plus.

Une bonne bière pour accompagner un repas relevé ou la fondue au fromage de la Barberie (très bon mariage). Bien sûr, c’est une hybride en raison de la levure pour vin. Ce qui lui donne une touche légère...peut-être trop molle en effet. Elle a un parfum fruité qui rappelle le raisin mêlé au malt. Le problème, selon moi, réside dans le fait qu’on est peu habitué à ce genre de goût qui manque d’amertume et de dureté. J’aime tout de même l’idée d’une bière nouvelle qui peut être prise avec un bon repas sans trop de lourdeur.

mathieuc (1517) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2012
Nothing too impressive here. Standard blonde with a fruity nose (expected for a Chardonnay beer). Maybe a little perfume too. Alcohol is not really hidden, maybe this would do good in a mulled drink? No apparent bitterness, just some grape tannins maybe (maybe not... I might be doing some associations). Would I drink again? Probably not. It is a stepup from the usual Barberie though.

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a veiled golden with a nice white head. Aroma is malted cereals. Flavor is pale malt, very sweet, a touch of wood, maybe some white grapes, too? Finish is slightly acidic, grapes. Medium body, average carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. Nice, strong, golden ale with an interesting twist to it.

Eructoblaster (3120) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle - 500ml. Hazy golden body with lively carbonation and an average white foamy head. Malty/hoppy aroma with grassy and white wine hints. Taste is slightly misbalanced. It is dominated by malty flavors and carries some flowery and yeasty notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish. Drinkable.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2005
Dry, wine-like, fruity aroma. Clear, golden-tan with low, white, fully-diminishing head. Very dry, wine-like flavour with sweet underlying grainy malt notes and light grassy hop flavour. Almost no bitterness allows both wine and malt characters to show through. Medium body is very dry with low carbonation. An interesting and well-received experiment, though I’m not so sure I’d want to drink a whole lot of this one. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.
