3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Petrol Station in November. Very clear light orange with absolutely no head or lacing - odd.. The nose is spicy and a bit tart. The flavor brings a nice blend of citrusy hops and some mild citric acid tartness with a little Belgian spice in the background. Quite a tasty brew. Very hard to classify this one in my mind - a hoppy tripel? Belgian IPA? How about just tasty brew?

Very odd beet. Perhaps I was expecting something different but this was extremely sweet but tasted artificial. Almost like red bull.

Poured a very hazy orange with very light head which dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is definitely heavy on the grapes and a bit of sweet candi sugar. Taste up front has the belgian yeast and the fruity taste of grape dominating, with the balance being created by the belgian sugars. The drier white grapes certainly create a nice fruity aftertaste, with the sauvignon blanc coming through more than anything else. All in all, a great experiment that should be reproduced in the future.

Pours clear orange. Smells like white wine ah jeez! A bit funky. Taste is refreshingly juicy, with a grape flavor I find quite good. Finish is dry, like eating green grapes.

(22 ounce bomber - shaker glass) Aroma is of white wine. Pours a yellow translucent color. Taste is acidic, light sweetness, and light bitterness. Dry finish, average to lively carbonation and medium body. I found this beer challenging and it reminded me of white wine, overall a good experience.

Opened 12.31.12, what a wonderful funky aroma! Reminds me almost of the smell of Orval, very strong aroma. Extremely smooth and sparkling palate, long lasting aftertaste with an explosion of yeasty and spicy flavours. Wonderful beer! Sad I probably won’t see another :P

Tap at Brouwers. Pours golden yellow with slight white bubbly head. Nose is floral, sliht hops, Belgian yeast, Belgian candy sugar, white grapes, funky lemon zest, slight peppery spice, chocolate, and the chamomile is strangely evident. Belgian yeast, spicy pepper, lemon zest, chocolate, candy sugar, white grapes, and slight hops. Mouthfeel is between watery and slightly oily. Decent beer...08 and 09 were better.

Smells like dish water. Starts light and moves into a smooth amber finishing with faint grapes and banana esters. Solid but could be more momentous

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden pour with a white head. Aroma of sourdough bread, sweet fruit, and lemon peel. The palate may be the best part of this beer - the grapes hit the sides of the tongue with their sweetness and then a long sour linger. The taste is not exceptional, any subtlety overpowered by yeast. The chamomile is noticeable in the back of the mouth. As for the triticale, isn’t that for tribbles?
