IndianaRed (4627) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 4, 2016
On Tap at Bier:Thirty, Boise. Slightly hazy golden peach color. Thin white head and lacing, Soft grape and mellow malts with some slightly tart flavors as well. A little of the wine/Chardonnay character, very light on the sour. Just OK

4.5
oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2016
Pours a bright golden yellow with fizzy head. Aromas of citrus peel, yeast, hay, and some funk. Flavors of sour grapes, some woody notes, and some funky yeast.

SirLimpsalot (4243) - SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2016
@ Cascade 16-3-9: kanske lite intetsägande med en halvsöt svag fatton. Ok men inget mer.

3.7
gyllenbock (9177) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2016
On tap at Cascade. Golden with a small head. Kind of relaxed with grape, light oak and some white wine. The finish was medium sour.

bg80 (84) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2016
2012 bottle tasting. Not what I was hoping for. Has aroma and flavors of those round candy buttons you have to bite off the shiny paper when you were a kid and didn’t even know how bad of a candy it is. There’s obviously some white wine stuff going on here but it’s ruined.

4.2
UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2016
2012 pours golden orange, minimal head. Lightly sour, white wine, light oak, funk. Medium body, minimal carb, quick finish.

3.8
baraciisch (3236) - California, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Clear dark golden in color... Aroma of Belgian biscuit malts, candi sugar, white wine grapes, oak, citrus... Flavor is fruity and citrusy up front, gives way to vinous undertones, light white wine on palate... Enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.3
hivemind (915) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2015
The Vine ’13, on draft at the barrel house in Aug 2014 with Erica and Matt. Light gold pour with very washy lacing on the glass. There is a wheaty aroma and it’s there on the palate as well. Yeasty sourness to it, not tart or acidic really. I described it as a solid "hefe-like" (?) sour.
