Bottle. Been looking forward to this for nearly 2 years (this was suppose to be the Bruery’s biere de champagne project). Pours with a slightly fizzy white head that fades quick (even when poured as a basque cider). Hazed golden body. Aromas are awesome: great funk, acid, tons of grape, chardonnay, bright acid, barnyard, a bit of acetic, lots of wood, vanillin and caramelization. Amazingly good aroma. Berries and distinct chardonnay. Flavors are pretty insane. Acidic and elegant. Massive chardonnay grapes, that are a bit too acidic, a touch too funky, a bit thin, and with a little (little) bit too much carbonation. (note to self: homebrew a brett C chard with a bit of carbonation: BOSS!). I’m okay with it tasting like straight chard. Huge florals, oak, bright fruit (tropical, stone, grape and green). Acidity is elegant with mild funk. Huge wine character with mild acetobacter. This is wine beer, and I love this! Amazingly good. Like a wine (I put pinot blanc in my notes for some reason), but a mild effervescence, with a huge acidity. It doesn’t need the carb. Medium to low body, dry, puckering, brilliant and tannic. Long duration. Transcending beer.

750ml pours bright yellow with zero head. Strong wine and oak aromas. Very tart. As it warms it mellows out to more of a ripe grape taste.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
hazy golden color. Flat, no head. Very very sour nose with lemon juice, oak and a bit of chard. The mouth isn’t nearly as tart as the nose.
The finish changes many different directions with a interesting saltiness in the end. Chard character also pops up more in the finish. Great depth. Lots of oak and chard in the mouth.

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Poured a clear golden yellow with no head. Taste of sour patch kids, cherries, funk, grapes, and oak. Extremely tart on the palate. No doubt this is a sour.

Grumlig vattnig ljusgul i färgen nästan inget skum. Doftar brett, vinöst, gröna druvor, medicin. Smakar härligt syrligt, söt citron, surt godis, vinöst, brett. Avslutas torrt och surt med fruktiga inslag.
