Bottle thanks to Vasili ! Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with a finger of tight white foam. Huge muscat presence all the way through starting with the nose. The addition of tart lemon, soft barrel character, rustic grain to the grape influence rounds this beer out nicely and creates layers of depth from sweet juicy muscat to dry funky basement. Well done and Im sure a little more age on this beer wouldn’t hurt the product but it perfectly delicious at the moment as well!

JBPortland (1183) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 23, 2015
750ml bottle shared thanks to Lukaduke! Pours hazy yellow with a finger of head. Nose is tart lemony white grape with balanced funk and some wet grainy oak. Taste is similar with juicy tart white wine and grape notes, woody oak funk and some soft soggy grain. Finishes with nice tartness and crisp acidity, soft white grape with a hint of sweet wine, and lemony citrus with tropical fruit. Tasty!

Pours a lightly hazed golden with no head and no lace. Nose is of fruits and light vinegar. Taste carries some light oxidative notes and is moderately tart. Flavors are fruity as well and reminescent of peaches. Body is light to medium and carbonation moderate. Vinous but not overly so. Overall a nice and subtle sour beer, if only more american sours were like that!

Bottle (750 ml) @ De Garde++ tasting. From Thomas, thanks!

Appearance: Clear bright pale golden with a small white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Grapes, light tartness, pears, musty notes, oak... delicate and beautiful.

Taste: Light to moderate sourness, grape must, light sweetness, oak, pears and winey notes.

Palate: Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Tannic and woodsy. Grapey finish.

Overall: Well balanced delicate and tasty sour ale. The grapes are effectively showcased. The barrel treatment is not overdone, but it’s still easily recognizable. Really good!

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.

hopscotch (10080) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2014
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.
