A great mix of barn yard and white wine on the nose. Carmel color with a bit of haze, the taste is light and refreshing with just the right amount of sour. I am in love with this beer!

Mora2000 (5664) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Drank alongside the White Wine Lychee version. Orange-amber pour with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee with some dark fruit, grapes and oak. The flavor has some oak and funk up front, with some grapes and a light bit of tartness. Very funky tasting with some strong leather and tobacco notes as it warms. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

ComradeK (1010) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 27, 2013
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts quite well although does not leave much lacing. There is plenty of sour funk in the aroma, mixed with oaked chardonnay and lemon. It is quite sour up front, with lemon the predominant flavour. This softens and segues nicely into smooth, slightly oaky chardonnay in the mid-palate, with some fruity notes and more sourness in the finish. The white wine flavours mix very nicely with the sourness, making for an enjoyable wild ale, although perhaps not quite as good as the lychee version.

Rastacouere (6126) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
Pale amber pour covered by an eternal white foam. Heady, vinous and wild ale with an almost gimmicky abuse on many concepts cherished by beer geeks, but still plenty of fun and not chaotic. The nose is explosive, throwing hordes of floral, juicy limey grape and leathery intricacies above subtle sulphurous whiffs bathing the otherwise fairly round offering with still a good bit of residual sugars for all its wild status. Perhaps more esters than I would like, banana amidst others, but otherwise displaying a sound yet not overwhelming brett character, timid, but surprising cereal undertones in that context and juicy, acidic winey notes. It makes for a sipper of a brew. Despite an ABV not beyond control, it feels strong and asks for a slow pace. Some good elements, but thatís many beverages in one here and for a simple mind like mind, itís probably a little too fusion to hit the sweetest spot.
