A Collaboration with Fess Parker.
Confession is a true collaborative effort between the wine and beer world. A variation of our sour blonde ale, brewed in part by the Parker team, was blended and fermented with juice pressed from Parkerís Riesling grapes, harvested in part by The Bruery team. The result is remarkable. Not quite beer, not quite wine. Fragrant fruit flavors warm the nose, infiltrated by a slight funk from the wild yeast. The first sip is reminiscent of a dry, white wine, but everything changes upon further examination as the flavors marinate and reveal themselves with each gulp.

Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell in London - thanks to Mr. Bruery himself, MadMitch. Pours clear yellow with a pure white foam head. The nose has light funk and white grape. Light-medium sweet flavor with drying white grapes, pear, lemon, mellow funk. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Good tangy finish with pale citrus, restrained funk, lemon. Tasty.

Scopey (9033) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle shared by Kenny. It pours hazy very pale gold with a tiny white head. The nose is sweet, oily, honey, coconut, vanilla, coconut water, must and wood. The taste is crisp, tart, sherbet, apple, pear, nice sourness, white grape, gooseberry, straw, light must and Riesling. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Kind of like a cheap sparkling white wine, but not necessarily in a bad way. Solid.

Bottle split at CBC on Aarons wrong date visit, big thanks to our Kenneth, 05/12/13. Hazed orange yellow with a thin off white covering that clears to pondwork and edgeing. Nose is dank citric wafts, straw, light citric smoke effect, burnt straw, bitter lemon rind, seared mandarin. Taste comprises burnt straw, musty dankness, dry rot, tarte pineapple, burnt citric dipped straw, bitter apricot skins - lots going on! Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry grassy tarteness in the closure. Nice sour.

maneliquor (3469) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2013 Bottle cheers to Ken. Pours hazy straw with not much of a head. Nose has plenty of lemon, biscuit, vanilla, white grapes, sherbert, sugar, white pepper and peach. Plenty of summery peach notes with moderate almonds, plum tart and light apricot. Kind of like a dry and fruit driven Riesling with a sugary kick. Solid

Craft Clerkenwell tasting. Hazy paleish gold beer, no real head. Palate is light and dry and a little crisp. Fine carbonation. Mild lemony sourness with grape adding a light winey vibe and also providing a little balancing sweetness. Light dry finish. Not bad.

750 ml bottle acquired via trade. Shared with the Destihl Crew. Pours a nice golden hue, bright yellow with gentle haze. Frothy whitish head stays as a mellow ring, laces ok. Aromas are vibrant, lemony. Green sour grapes meet mellow oak, touches of firm lactic acidity, lemon rind and some yogurt. Gentle touches of green grape, grapeskin, oak is decent, touches of white grape, gentle sweeter elements, touches of dry tannic oak, some spritiziness. Initial is lighter end of the fold, touches of oak, mellow vanilla and honeysuckle. Green grapes, tartness and mellow crab apple. Touches of lactic acidity, lemon, and firm sourness, potent sourness, a touch of champagne, green apple, and sourness. Lactic acidity, some nice lemon rind, fruit. Middle is lactic, green grape, and nice yogurty sourness. Lactic, lemon, gentle carbonation. A touch of fruitiness in the base shows some body. , gentle honeycrisp apple. Backend is a bit more dry, gentle yeast, oak, middling sourness overall. Apple, lemon, white grape and some sweetness. Really brings that Reisling and white wine element, a but yeasty, firm sourness. Finish is dry, oaky, and tannic. Some sourness, is decent to middling. Nice stuff. Really straddles that sour and white wine line well. For 8 and change ABV, itís not as big as youíd expect.

fletchfighters (1255) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2013
Thanks to Spicelab for sharing 750 Ml bottle Cloudy straw yellow color, persistent bright white collar. Little to no lacing. Nose is all over the place in a good way. Oak, grape, lemon, acid, and funk. Just goes in and out in waves. Smells more like a wine at times, others a sour. Taste is pretty much the same. More notes of Riesling really. Bit of mineral, oak, lemon, lime, funk and tartness. Goes and and out of being a beer and a wine. Full bodied, prickly, full of tartness. Not really consistent one way or the other but workable.
