Very much enjoying this. Typically the fresh stone beers are pretty hoppy and bitter but this is nice and complex with minimal bitterness. Can definitely taste the muscat grapes. Also a little floral funky. Great beer!

Drinking 11/10/11Smell is Chamomile, belgian yeast, apricots, alcohol, and apples. Poured fairly flat. Light orange color not a whole lot of carbonation. Taste is lots of carbonation, apple sauce, belgian yeast. Mouthfeel is light, taste is snappy. Some alcohol burn. Probably not the best bottle conditioning on this one. The taste is a bit disjointed and amateurish. Not what I remember at all. Enjoyability 3/5

aroma of belgian yeast,malts,grape wine,a floral quality and spices interesting..hazy yellow appearance slightly amber tinged thin head some lacing..taste follows the nose sort of a belgian/sweet white wine mixture with the spices and florals adding to it again interesting,lightly carbonated slightly sticky on the mouth and palate,sweetens as it warms,not unlike dogfish heads midas touch in several ways.. not my favorite type or style but a different and interesting beer in a good way

Interesting aroma, jelly beans, coriander, grapes, and grapefruit. Smell is rather dry and tart, with a pear after taste. Good but not what not as interesting as some of it’s predecessors.

Not the best vertical epic I have tasted. Still the pour is pretty amber with a small white head. On the nose I do pick up some of the muscat and Gewurztraminer notes that I would associate with wines made from tose grapes. On the palate it is well balanced between hops sweetness and fruit.

Pours almost clear golden with very little foam N: grapey. Sweet grapes. This is like sauternes if it wasn’t for the light spicy yeast character T: the taste is wonderfully winey and sweet. Gewürstraminer or something. Only getting lightly drying in the aftertaste. Funny stuff.

22 oz. bottle. Poured a golden copper color with a very thin head that disappeared quickly. The aroma was sweet, presumably from the grapes that were used, very nice. Little carbonation, with a smooth yet thick mouthfeel. Had a sweet taste with an alcohol presence in the background. A great effort, will definately look for again.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small-medium white head. Aroma is white wine, grapes, spicy Belgian yeast. Taste is very sweet, more white wine and spice from the yeast. Finish is dry, slightly tart. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Not bad, interesting.

Sampled at Chris’s bachelor party. Golden brown pour with a somewhat sour smell yet sweet flavor. Tasted as if it was it had been barrel aged. Had a slightly syrupy mouth feel.

Sadly, my bottle saved for two years was lacking a bit in the carbonation department. Nice grapey windy aroma, but Belgian yeast is there too. Very unique flavor with the wine/beer blend. I really like this one and wish it had more bubbles.
