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.

750 ml bottle via dbarnold, 12/13/15. Pours a clear golden color with a head that dissipates so quickly you can hear it going away. It leaves nothing on the glass at all in the way of lace. It has kind of a damp wood funk on the initial aroma. Pulling deeper and that disappears somehow and turns into a grape / white wine aroma. Somewhat sour on the flavor, tart, funky and fruity as well. There’s a lot going on here. Fairly fizzy feel (as you’d expect while watching and listening to that head dissipate). I’m not sure I love the overall combination, but I definitely like the idea of this one quite a bit. I think the idea may have been better than the execution in this case.

Super gusher. Light glowing honey pour with no head. Nose is funky and skunky. Very sweet white winey (Muscat ? Riesling?), funky bugs and barrel character, lemon and honey. Nice full body, very round, with a short lasting pucker and a nice sweetness. Taste is less skunky. Very nice balance of lemon juice, lemon lime , honey, sweet white grape (Riesling?) funky barrel character and an almost salty vegetal tone. A nice bruery beer.

Draft @ Bruery. Aroma of white grape and mild tart. Flavor has white grape, mild tardy funk and a fruity finish. This is really a marriage between beer and white wine.

Still amazed at the variety of sours from the Bruery. This is wine heavy, almost like its a carbonated trailing that happens to be carbonated and a bit sour. Apple tartness, minerally goodness. Mellow yet complex. Well done!

Bottle thanks to Josh. Pours a hazy gold with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong grape, funk, apple skin. Thin mouth, strong pear, white grape, apple, nice sourness upfront with light dry finish, little funky, really enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Bright golden hue with slight haze. Hardly any head, but there’s a bit of visible carbonation. Funky nose. White vinegar and oodles of barnyard funk mix with sweet pear, green apple and peach in a weird, wonderful way. Moderate tartness in the flavor with some bite to it. Lemon, mint, pear, apple. Sweet in the front, acidic in the back. Moderate fizziness, tongue-pinching. Acidity grows and grows. Silky body. A little one-sided toward the sour end. Wine is in there, but it’s overpowered.

Bottle at the Libertine February Bottle Share. Pours a golden orange with no real head. Aroma is a rather nasty funky sock. Taste is a headache inducing white wine with some slight sour notes. Much more wine in this than beer to me. Ouch.

Champagne-like clear golden with strong bubbly head appearance. White-wine-like aroma. Tart and dry; leomony and musty like a fruity white wine. Notes: Denver Rare Beer Tasting ’13
