COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oui Oui is the second in our Vitis Series. For this version, we aged our sour blonde ale in used wine barrels along with chardonnay grapes. The resulting ale has a pleasant funk with resounding similarities to a California chardonnay wine." It’s an RS only release.

Clear gold pour, no head. Aroma of grapes and lots of Chardonnay, taste is also very similar. Tasty and beautiful.

kathouse (916) - Nevada, USA - MAY 12, 2014
My final rating from Sucréversary 2014, but not the least important. I agree that this does not taste like "beer". It has ALL the characteristics of a Chardonnay. Buttery mouthfeel, vanilla, white stone fruits, and grapes. Only oddity is the light carbonation and slight sourness. Unique and important.

peteinSD (1333) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle. Slightly hazy, yellow pour. Nearly still with minimal carbonation and no head. Heavy chardonnay in the aroma with light tart. Taste follows the aroma with a bit more tart and light funk. Relatively clean mouthfeel for the ABV. Nice wine-like beer.

djd07 (3227) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle thanks to Elliot. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with paperthin white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is oak, grapes, and funk. Thin mouthfeel with strong wine grape and oak with light sour finish. Held up very well, really enjoyed this one.

DrewFace (701) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Pours a fairly clear golden color. Very tart, acidic and barnyardy aroma. Intense acidic sour in the flavor, light fruity citrusy type character, juicy, puckering, light.

Homer321 (1591) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle thanks to andrewface. Nose of tartness. Some cheese initially. Some wine notes. Grapey. Taste not overly tart after the first sip. But still there. While not harsh. This one is gooooooood. Some acetic burn late in the finish. One of the good sours. Very tasty

Glouglouburp (5936) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2013
In short: Tart white grapes and more tart white grapes. Barely a beer. Not my thing.
How: Bottle 750ml, consumed when many months of age. Probably sent to me by someone, can’t remember who.
The look: Cloudy pale blonde body topped by a short-lived small white head.
In long: Nose is intensely white grapes with some barnyard and vinegary notes. In mouth the beer has a somewhat lifeless mouthfeel with a juicy texture and a soft carbonation. Taste is as simplistic as the aroma. Very low on the malt front (especially for a 9% beer) and no hops presence whatsoever. This beer is all about tart white grapes and then more tart white grapes. Also some oak and vinegary notes. Not an easy to drink beer, this is truly a slow sipper. Classified as a Sour/Wild ale but to me this was more like a Fruit Beer, this beer is all about the white grapes. I wonder when people renew their Bruery Reserve Society membership, and more importantly why.

BBB63 (5938) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle via trade with Eric, served in my Duvel snifter: Pours a hazy golden hue with not much head nor lace, like a slightly carbonated lambic. The aroma is heavy with vinegar, oak, white grapes, barnyard funk and biscuity grains. There is sadly a noticeable acetic/acetone/medicinal note on both the nose and palate that detracts. The taste is expectedly soured and lightly fruity with a moderately tannic finish. The mouth feel is more akin to a heavier bodied wine than beer. It was nice to have try this but I honestly had enough after half a bottle, the nail polish like overtones are just too much.

Smurf2055 (1394) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Pours hazy tangerine with a small white, quick dissipating head. Smell huge white wine and oak, vinous and spritzy, big funky brett presence. Taste sweet and sour, peach and lactic, brett, funk, honey and vanilla cream, earthy finish. Very strong flavor, not that deep but amazing sour, tart, and funk. Smooth and light/medium body. Very impressed.

BoostIPA (1181) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Pours a hazed orange with no head. Intense aromas of bacterial funk, crotch cheese, vagina. Intense. Fecal. Necrophelia. Sharp. Like an orgy of fine French cocks in my mouth. Finishes with a burst of homoerotic. Jesus. This beer is damn near perfect.
