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.

Bottle at Treskillingen, Stockholm. Clear pale golden beer with no head. Fruity vinous aroma, grapes, peach, some passion fruit, raisins notes. Vinous fruity flavor, grapefruit, peach notes, grapes, some raisins. No carbonation at all, which gives it a slightly strange mouthfeel.

King_Alex_II (790) - 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 (522) - 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.

SinH4 (1395) - Garching, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2015
Hazy yellow color with hardly any head. Aroma is fresh, fruity with grapes, tartness. Taste is similar, with a light maltiness, but a bit boring. Overall quite light. Okay.

eduardovl (1148) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 330ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip glass. A: Pours a quite cloudy pale yellow color forming a minimal bubbled white head. Minimum retention and some thin and lingering lacings in the glass S: Great perfume of grapes. Strong notes of white wine, sweet pale malts, vanilla, wood and bready yeasts T: Sweet, malty and very fruity upfront. Notes of white grapes, vanilla, oak. Smooth taste: A good balance between sweetness and bitterness with nice touch of sour. The bitterness prevails in the very end M: Medium body. A bit molasses. Low carbonation and a good fruity bitter-sweetness aftertaste O: Great drinkability. Quite smooth for its 8%. A winner. Recommended [ BA Review @ 8/11/2013 ]

Draft at Khyber Pass. Hazy straw pour with a fizzy/foamy white head. Pleasant citrus floral aroma. Huge vinous flavors. Green grapes. Gold plums. Oak tannins. Bit sweet, sharply tart. Clementine marmalade. Hay stacks. Orange pips and pith. Flavors are well blended and blurred.

[Bottle] Straw colored pour with a large and lasting white foam head. Grape must, yeast and cider-like aromas. Flavor notes include lemon, white peppercorn, grape, dough, grass and sour fruit rinds. Lively carbonation. More sour character is evident as the beer warms. Overall, quite sessionable.

mansquito (4454) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Alewife, Queens tap: Pours really cloudy whitish yellow with a small white head. Aroma is grape, wheat, acid, and some fruitiness. Taste had a nice sourness to it, but not particularly strong. Nice wit features throughout. A bit spicy and fruity. Very refreshing, especially considering the high alcohol content.
