From notes. This was shared at a tasting put on by @mikem409 on November 7. The pour is a nice foggy gold color with a nice white head and some great lace. The aroma is very heavy on the grapes and a lot of pear. There is a little peachiness and a strong citrus. The flavor is very tart and sour. Not quite the most sour of the group we had, but it was very good. The fruits really took this one over the sour aspect. The mouth feel was pretty light, but there was a good carbonation. The aftertaste was crisp, quick and dry with a wine-ish bitterness that hangs.

Bottle... Murky peach-colored pour with no head. The restrained nose is fruity, a touch dank, and earthy. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and busy carbonation. The flavor is tart and yeasty with light, crusty bitterness. Crisp, dry finale.

This poured a hazy bright light orange with a white head. Aroma was of lots of citrus, oranges, peaches and white wine, very pungent. Flavor was incredibly refreshing, lots of orange and.peach, mild funk and white wine vineous finish. Delicious.

Bottle @ GT’s Cat Cabana. Thanks, GT. Hazy bright orange pour with small white foam. Nose is really heavy on pear and white grape. Kind of sweet fruit cobbler nose and a bit of tart citrus. Interesting beer. Flavor is lightly tart and lots of fruit character. Sweet baked pear, apple, and stone fruit. Some white grape juice, lemon, and orange zest.

Bottle. Cloudy orange pour with a small fizzy head. Aroma is a great mix of barnyard, grape skins, oranges, and oak. Tastes moderately sour. Nice juiciness balances the sour and it mixes well with the lemon, oak and barnyard flavors. White grape finish. I usually don’t like the more wine-like sours but this one was great. My first Upright beer did not disappoint.
