COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 Parker’s 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.

Poured from the beer truck at Sucréversary. Yellow with a nice white foam. Lots of green apple, pear, and grape notes. It does taste more like a wine with a fruit astringency. Finish is slightly sour, dry, and refreshing. One of my favorites at the festival.

Draft at the Bruery reserve society initiation party 2013. Slightly hazy golden pour, slightly orangeish, with a frothy white head. White grape, lemon, tart sourness, citrusy, grass, and light crackery malt. Very tasty, clean, and refreshing. I love the flavors, I had two tasters of this. Probably my favorite of the day.

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.

The beer is pale yellow with a mild haze. The aroma brings white wine, grapes, grape skins, funk. A beautiful marriage of white wine and sour ale. Puckering and tart. White grapes are the star of the show. Really delicious. Funky, sour and tart with no acetic presence in the finish. Silky smooth and elegant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is very wine like with a lot of grape notes and some fruit. Hints of acidity with grape skin, some red apple cider and stone fruit. Touch of citrus. Pours a very clear golden yellow with a small rocky head that recedes quickly to the edges and disappears while being slightly replenished by effervescent bubbles. No lacing and faint attempts at legs. Flavor has a moderate acidity, rather lactic with a faint malt presence. Some light grape skin and wine notes. Some nice citrus notes with some tropical fruit, especially pineapple. Light red apple cider notes with some nice peach and nectarine notes. Light bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall a really nice sour beer with some really great fruit character. The wine character in the aroma is a bit overpowering but is well balanced and integrated in the flavor.
