4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Knightly. This pours a bright golden color with a fluffy white head on top that yields some spotty lacing. There’s a musty, earthy, funky aroma to this that’s accompanied by white grape, citrus peel, and some herbal notes. The flavors are assertive but very drinkable. Straw notes mingle with sweet peach, white grape, and husky notes. There’s plenty of funky yeastiness throughout. Lightly tart upfront before turning somewhat dry in the finish, with mild bitter herbal hops. Nicely put together. This is the best beer I’ve had from Saint Somewhere.

Draft on tap at Redlight Redlight (Orlando, FL). Nice rare tick here. Pours a nice hazy golden amber hue, well hazed with frothy whitish head that frothys and laces well. A bit darker in the bosy, dulled golden glow. Aromas are white grape, a touch tannic, gentle tartness, kiss of lemon, white grape, and gentle sugary element. Straw, gentle yeast, and mellow lotion. Herbal, earthy. Initial is medium bodied, a touch sticky, with melon, some sugar, bready, mellow tartness. Middle is a touch more sticky, bready and mellow dough. Some yeastiness, spice, mellow fruity esters. A bit dry and prickly, mellow yeast, gentle spice. A bit sweet, faint toasty malt and straw. Nice beer, a bit sweet at times. Nice aromas and touch of tartness. Solid.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is sweet and sour with both fruity and funky. There is definitely a grape must in it. The appearance is hazy gold with an average head for the style. The taste is like the aroma with sourness up front and complex maltiness in the finish. The palate is typical for the style. Overall this is a decent beer but not my favorite thing.

There is an overpowering amount farmhouse tasty and aroma. It has that musty flavor that it hard to miss, a mild tart taste due to the grapes.
