375 ml bottle courtesy of 808Breaks. Thanks, dude. Pours a golden orange hue, gentle haze but closer to transparent, with lively carbonation, cakey brighter white head atop. Good filmy layer. Laces ok atop with firm lacing overall. Aromas are firmer plum, a bit tannic and dark fruit driven. Red and sweeter white grape mix, gentle oak, subtle tannic quality is quite mellow. A lot more dark fruit and skin presence in this one. Sweeter grapes mix in, some lactic acidity, decent funk and cobwebs, mellow to decent oak, vanilla. Initial is medium to decent sourness, a firm grape and plum melange of flavor. Red and purple grapes, some dry tannic skin meet plums, gentle white and muscat sweeter grapes start to come in. Some firm lactic elements, yogurt, big tannic grapeskin throughout. Medium oak. Some funkiness is a touch bretty. More fruity, tree fruit grape and dark fruit compliments. Red grape, touches of muscat, a great melange of flavor. Oak, lactic elements, firm tannic feel into the middle and backend. Some funk, gentle sweetness is subtle. Wow. Really well put together. I really thougt these flavors would clash, but it really works well. A big rich tannic red might have hurt this. But a more neutral barrel with some red grape tannic feel and sweet muscat feel somehopw really works together. Plum element really works well, compliments in a more subtle manner. Really comes together. Kinda amazed. Really looking forward to the next 3. Wow. Nose is a bit muted, but otherwise the beer delivers HonusWagner (2168) - Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Quite plummy in the nose, reminds me of my childhood summers when my grandmother would bring home fresh plums from the flea market. Lightly tart, with a definitely plum-dominant flavor, though hints of grape do linger. Not particularly musty/farmhouse, but a very good American fruit sour.

Bottle share at the Syb Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Thanks Derek and Erin! Small snifter. Pours a yellow-orange with foamy white head. Good lacing. Strong aroma of wine and grapes with brett, barnyard, and other fruits. The taste was funky, wine, sour grapes and cherries, wood, and yeasts. Very refreshing, some carbonation, sour finish. Did I say funky?

375mL from Blue Palms, Hollywood. Clear sparkling gold to orange. Medium fizzing white foam. Actually nice lacing. Cheesy, pretty funky bleu cheese nose like some Berliner Weisses. Taste is fresh and tangy RR Temptation style. Bright white wine and refreshing tart green apple and unripe nectarine. Lactic, refreshing. Great, long leathery finish. Similar to Temptation. No acetic. arminjewell (9635) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Pour out of 375 mL bottle, aroma brings notes of grape juice, white grape skins, hints of oak, tannins, touch of white fruits with apricot, hints of cracker and biscuit, nice lactic note as well with a hint of spice. Taste is a mix of nice lactic lemon, hints of oak, biscuit, bread, nice spice, touch of tannins, lots of nice white grape, some slight red grape as well, finishing lactic, tart and fairly bitter. cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 3, 2013

Bottle at Jupiter Sour Sunday. Pours dark orangish gold. Aroma is strawberries and parmesan cheese -- weird. Flavor is strongly grapey, sweet red varieties mainly, plus some stone fruit and a strong lactic sourness that includes bleu cheese. More acid and less cheese makes this a great beer, but for now it’s just decent.
