3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
5th December 2013
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Slightly hazed golden straw pour with a nice white head. Wonderful wine aroma and plenty of grapes. Really nice lactic tartness, lots of lemon, and hints of green apple. Mild oak and grass, maybe some lime zest, too. The flavor is slightly sweet up front with some grape notes, but quickly transitions to tart, lactic acidity and lemon zest. Mild lime, drying oak, green apple, and a hint of grassy funk.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... This beer is a baller!… Pours hazed and golden with a tiny, white head that’s gone faster than you can say “quick!” The aroma is a mélange of fallen pluots and plums accompanied by a major component of Riesling grape wine, and only a suggestion of damp, woody funk. The flavor offers a ‘very tart’ to ‘moderately sour’ level of acidity, complex and vinous fruitiness, and a hint of acetic acid. Finishes tart and tangy with a light splash of white wine vinegar. Thanks goes out to richiesd for this bottle of world class beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy gold pour with a nice sticky white head. Flavors of white wine, wild grapes, vanilla, toasted oak. This is the beer to bridge white wine lovers with. I loved it, but I do enjoy white wine. This will turn some away who do not enjoy wine.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL thanks to BMan1113VR. Pours a low haze, brighter straw with weak foam. Nose is quite excellent with rich Muscatel white grape...peaches, mangosteen, fresh fruit smoothie. Taste brings mild acetic heat which doesn’t come across as too salty or vinegary, bright greener fresh grape, creamy peach. Palate is a tad salty and acetic but the thicker peaches and cream character gives it some thickness and sweetness. Overall yummy.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
