COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Peconic County Reserve Ale is the result of a marriage of grape and grain. Local Chardonnay grapes from Osprey’s Dominion Vineyards combine with barley malt, wheat and hops to create this unique ale. Barrel aging and refermentation in the bottle add an additional depth of character to this one-of-a-kind brew.

Hazy golden with small off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet (honey), white grape, oak, herbal hoppy. Taste is medium sweet, white grape, oak, light yeast, lighter pepper, finishing light herbal hoppy. Dry, medium acidic finish. Medium body. Some white wine qualities, but definitely a beer.

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... !

The cloudy golden body of this beer is topped by a meidum thick head with a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is sour, tart and vinious. The flavor is sour and vinious with a very slight sweet fruitiness. Light bodied and slightly dry.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - NOV 10, 2003
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.
