3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
grape and fresh bread, honey?, slightly musty. initially there is a white head with tight and airy bubbles. small head likes to linger around for a bit and eventually leave itself as a sparkling ring around the glass. murky golden body. just sweet enough. fizzy, tart grape. vinous. then finishes nicely, just a hint of fruit and not too dry with a little of some bitterness. i liked it. it's a treat, nothing for everyday, but good anyway. an attempt for a "marriage" between wine and beer. personally, leave wine with wine and beer with beer, but this was good anyway. it's like a white wine merged with a very light ale. the ale "part" has some other complexity i cannot put my finger on. BUT... thanks so much to jeremy (jgb), he was my secret santa... !

Cloudy gold pour that is almost hefe like in appearance.There is a slight sourness to it that seems like a cross between Thompson grape skins and green apples. A very interesting and delicious brew.

Brewed in 2002. Poured, out of a beautiful bottle, a sparkling golden color with a large bubbly white head. Wheaty aroma, also included a touch of grapes and a slight musty earth aroma as well. This is best described as a mix between a saison and a white wine. Very interesting, smooth as well. Smooth across the tongue, and a slight bitter wine taste on the sides. I really enjoyed this one, maybe I can make it to NY another time to buy one.
