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.

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.

2002 Vintage. Pours a very carbonated hazed amber. Nose is sour grapes mixed with earthiness. The taste is definitely grape laden but more of the earth comes through as well with some light malt and a champagne like mouthfeel. Seems almost like a saison but too fruity to be one. Not a bad beer, but not a great one either. Thanks go out to jgb9348(Jeremy), for sending this my way!

GABF '03 The name is what drew me to the beer,thinking that it was possibly a Saison,but I was fooled.Golden beer with a slight haze.Appearance and aroma were what pulled me in and then I was a bit turned off by the combination of flavors,might it have been the Chardonnay grapes? A Good fruit beer,but I don't think I would look for it again.

Slightly hazy darker golden colour with a dense larger-bubbled head. Musty aroma of sweet grapes, mushrooms and farmhouse 'freshness'. Light-bodied; Very subtle grapeyness with some interesting faint earthy flavours. Aftertaste actually very subtle and only showing a bit of the grapeyness. Overall, alright, but to be honest-I was expecting more! I bought this 75 cL bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and brought it to Knoxville, Tennessee for Haddon90 (Phil) and myself to sample on 28-September-2003.
