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.

mansquito (3281) - 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.

First hit of this just-tapped at Local 44 in Philly. Hazy gold pour, nice foamy white head. Perfect looking beer. Funky tart barnyard aroma with notes of yeast and lemon. Great lemony flavor; sweet, tart, very well balanced. Very solid beer.

L_inconnu (58) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Une jolie couleur, bien translucide, très légèrement ambrée (surprenant) et une mousse très légère, le tout accompagné d’une carbonation assez soutenue. Au nez, elle est très flatteuse : on sent bien le raisin, et on a une impression de sucré. Ce qui est très différent en bouche ; bien bitter, très sèche, et qui n’apporte rien de plus sur le palais. Pas mauvaise, mais moins bien que sa soeur à base de Garanoir, que j’ai trouvée plus sympa.

Jow (2016) - New York, USA - APR 15, 2014
Another bottle bought in blind haste luckily I hadn’t rated prior since it looks like I had #2 rouge version. This pours a white wine coloration with thin head. Nose is grapes and must not surprisingly. Tastes of white grapes, must, pears, vino, floral, and slight tonic water. Pretty thin palate and drying finish. Not all that sour at all good use a lunch of tartness and stronger flavor.

Tmoney99 (10450) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2014
Tap sample. Poured a hazy amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour and tannic wood aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet and sour finish of moderate duration. Complex beer that surpassed my expectations.

hopscotch (8848) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle (dregs) ... Cloudy pear-colored pour with no head. The bouquet is an assortment of earthy, woody, tangy, fruity and spicy notes accompanied by a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied with lazy carbonation. Sweet pale grains, tart acidity and yeasty bitterness provide near-perfect balance. Tangy finish with a smidge of bread-crust bitterness. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

DrSilverworm (6009) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2014
11.2oz capped bottle, from Dutch’s. $6.49 retail in Ohio. Clear golden color. Thin ring of white head, loose dots of lace. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly dry texture. Medium body. Tastes lighter than 8%. Pretty bright, kind of refreshing even... Kinda like white wines.. Some wild yeast in the nose, light tartness in the flavor, but more sweet overall. Nice wood, white grape in the nose. Some citrus. Pretty nice, enjoyable stuff. Better than expected.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Hazy tan body, thin head. Gentle, nuanced sour wheat nose without the overwhelming vinegar or tartness of some beers of the style. Soft, light malting. The body too is softly malted with an easy sourness throughout. Restrained and quite refreshing.
