3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11/14/2014: Dull, hazy gold color; quite effervescent. Give it a swirl in the glass, it has a fantastic sugary white grapiness with a bit of berry and oak. It smells really good, but the flavor doesn’t deliver. Actually, it falls pretty flat. It is lightly spicy, slightly sour, a bit of honey flavor and sweetness. It isn’t overly flavorful and has no finish. It’s also bit thin in body. I think this one might be too old at this point to really enjoy. 330 ml bottle (Cons. 2013 auot) shared by Brian.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
You can smell the grape fruitiness from the moment you pour it, and it's nearly effervescent with carbonation. The flavor doesn't come through like you'd expect for the blast of flavor your nose gets when you open it. Overall, not as good as I expected from reviews and hype. This bottle was deemed to be consumed by a if 2013 - which may play into the lack of flavorings.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A refreshing sour ale. Pours like a wine or white grape juice. Flavors of grapes are evident and welcomed. Not overly sour, has some residual sweetness, and doesn’t finish dry like white wines typically do.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours hazy straw gold with quickly settling white head, no lace. Aroma is funky, musty, fruity. Flavor is mildly tart, vinous, with a grape, sweet and mild grain, malt finish. Nice that the grape isn’t over the top, has a pleasant, mild tartness to balance the sugars. Soft carbonation, medium body, and juicy texture.

Fruity nose, but not sweet. Has a dry finish. I could imagine drinking this on a hot summer day. Very refreshing!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very hazy, dull gold with a small white head. Yeasty nose and palate, maybe I should have been more careful in the pour so as not to have released the lees, but I’m getting a prominence of doughy yeast. There is some straw like malts and a bit of an earthy quality, but absolutely no sweet grapes and no barrel. Disappointing.
