The Aroma is pretty one dimensional, grapes and must. The pour was a very light and clear golden yellow with almost no head. The taste was mostly sweet with a little bit of tartness towards the end. The body was very light and effervescent. Overall it was actually a little disappointing not very sour and in comparison to the no. 2 it was overly dominated by the grapes.

Cybercat (4983) - Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Pours clear solar yellow with a thick, though effervescent, eggshell head. Aroma presents sour fruity and fresh malt notes. Sour apple and pear tones dominate the flavor while letting fresh malt and subtle woody tones provide the background. Mouthfeel features OK body and some good fizz. An average ale, but go ahead and enjoy the company of this dame.

King_Alex_II (1140) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 13, 2015
Apple juice appearance without foam. Sourish, grapey notes. The taste is calm, a little boring and has a shy wine/grape flavor and a milky mouth feeling. Dry and grapey aftertaste. Caution: This beer won’t tell you at any point that it hides 8% alcohol.

anstei (1011) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle, courtesy of King_Alex_II. Strong saison aroma of strawberry, very nice. The taste is a bit boring though. A good beer to try, but nothing exciting.
