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.

Craft Clerkenwell tasting. Hazy paleish gold beer, no real head. Palate is light and dry and a little crisp. Fine carbonation. Mild lemony sourness with grape adding a light winey vibe and also providing a little balancing sweetness. Light dry finish. Not bad.

Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell in London - thanks to Mr. Bruery himself, MadMitch. Pours clear yellow with a pure white foam head. The nose has light funk and white grape. Light-medium sweet flavor with drying white grapes, pear, lemon, mellow funk. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Good tangy finish with pale citrus, restrained funk, lemon. Tasty.

Tasting at SF, Vancouver
Cloudy pale blond color. The aroma is a bit fruity, grapes, some plastic too; sour. Nice sour flavor, it reminds me of a cider, not much depth or complexity though. Gentle alcohol warmth.
Good beer.

Bottle split at CBC on Aarons wrong date visit, big thanks to our Kenneth, 05/12/13. Hazed orange yellow with a thin off white covering that clears to pondwork and edgeing. Nose is dank citric wafts, straw, light citric smoke effect, burnt straw, bitter lemon rind, seared mandarin. Taste comprises burnt straw, musty dankness, dry rot, tarte pineapple, burnt citric dipped straw, bitter apricot skins - lots going on! Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry grassy tarteness in the closure. Nice sour.

750mL bottle, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out grape must, wine barrels, and wild yeast. Flavour is loaded with wild yeast and tons of Riesling grapes. Nicely funky, with a shit ton of white wine grapes. Wonderful Riesling character to it. Excellent.

Oakes (18543) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2017
Slight haze. Touch of pale. No head. There's some brett and barrel on the nose, but also a bit of toastiness. On the palate, the grapes are big. Vinous. Tart, barrel, and complex.

brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Slightly hazed golden straw pour with a nice white head. Wonderful wine aroma and plenty of grapes. Really nice lactic tartness, lots of lemon, and hints of green apple. Mild oak and grass, maybe some lime zest, too. The flavor is slightly sweet up front with some grape notes, but quickly transitions to tart, lactic acidity and lemon zest. Mild lime, drying oak, green apple, and a hint of grassy funk.

3.5
Ferris (16295) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2017 Tap room - White grape and some apple. Clear gold with a decent white head. White grape apple and some tannins with a dry finish. Too much Riesling not enough beer.

3.6
Scopey (15447) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle shared by Kenny. It pours hazy very pale gold with a tiny white head. The nose is sweet, oily, honey, coconut, vanilla, coconut water, must and wood. The taste is crisp, tart, sherbet, apple, pear, nice sourness, white grape, gooseberry, straw, light must and Riesling. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Kind of like a cheap sparkling white wine, but not necessarily in a bad way. Solid.
