COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Confession is a true collaborative effort between the wine and beer world. A variation of our sour blonde ale, brewed in part by the Parker team, Confession was blended and fermented with juice pressed from Parker’s Riesling grapes. The result is remarkable. Not quite beer, not quite wine. Fragrant fruit flavors warm the nose, infiltrated by a slight funk from the wild yeast. The first sip is reminiscent of a dry, white wine, but everything changes upon further examination as the flavors marinate and reveal themselves with each gulp.

Pour is a nice unfiltered blonde, slight head that fades. Smell of dry wine, nice sweet beery scent, and a dash of other presences. Taste is initial dryness, some sour funk going on, and a mild beer type blonde-ness. Nice

Bottle. Golden pour with light head. Light fruit, wine and brett aromas. Flavors are brett forward, some fruit and berry plus wine tones.

Bottle pour at Shelton Brothers. Clean nose with some funk and muscat leading the way. A bit of oak and buttery notes, but still quite tannic. Pear, apple, muscat and light peach notes as it warms. Not a trace of booze. Very white wine like. Elegant.

Apple juice colored beer with a non-existent head that gives off a distinct crackling sound as it is poured. Pungent nose of sour green apple, buttery oak, and a bit of vanilla. Flavor is bright and crisp with tangerine and peach followed by a subtle palette-coating wood resin that counterbalances the tartness. Virtually no hop flavor or bitterness so the wood is absolutely necessary. It’s good and I respect what the Bruery does to push the limits of what beer can be with each of their unique releases. Worth a try, at least once.

750 ml bottle. Pours a golden yellow with little carbonation - or what there is fades quickly. Tart. Green apple. Bit of cider like pucker.

750, capped. Thanks, J! What an awesome treat (for the millionth time saying that). Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with real brightness reflecting. Light fizzy head, minimal lace, if any. Wish I could have smelled and tasted this one more vividly than I did, but I certainly enjoyed it. Bright pears, green apples, and lemon and lime on the nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Lightly sweetened cereal grain under a steady wash of pears, green apples, and a vinous lemon and lime combo. Very appealing and endlessly drinkable.

Really impressed with this - having it on tap to celebrate The Bruery entering MN. Not a ton on the nose but it pours like a sparkling wine. The grapes definitely come thru and just when the funk starts to kick in, the sweet grapes beat it down and it ends cleanly. I’m a wine fan for sure too, so this fits my style.

Dfonorow (2250) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Bottle share @ DLD 2016. Pour is straw yellow with a minimal white head. Aroma and flavor of lemon zest, tart acidic fruit, and yeast.
