neongolden (2081) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2017
(On tap @ CBC 2016 Blue Session, Copenhagen) Pours a medium salmon pink colour with a white head. Aroma of mulchy sulphurous funk, sweet cherry, strawberry candy, light red wine grape quality but more prominent berry notes vs. explicitly vinous ones, wood is present but relatively subdued. On the tongue, medium tart mix of red berries, especially strawberry, woody strawberry seed notes, not extremely grape-y again but conveys a lot of the fruity notes of an actual Cab Franc, acidity is moderate and mostly lactic, finish has more strawberry seeds, a bit of wood, pretty dry, lightly tannic but not too bitter, well balanced. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Nice use of wine grapes in a way that expresses their character, very drinkable.

Bottle at Steve_0’s house. Thanks Stephen. Pinkish orange appearance with a white head. The aroma is kind of unique. Funk, wine grapes, light berry, and effervescent nose. Fairly tart. Light fruit flavor. Almost like apples, pears, and white (?) grapes. Interesting.

hopscotch (11495) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2017
Bottle... Hazy rosé-colored pour with no head. The aroma is lightly fruity, oaken and citric, accompanied by a small splash of red wine. Medium-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor offers a medium level of tartness and is moderately fruity. Tangy and a touch dry in the finish. Nice balance overall. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

Bottle. It poured an orange / red color with a white head. The aroma was of grapes, citrus and some funk. The taste was similar to the aroma with more grapes, citrus, funk and some sourness. Nice carbonation. Good stuff.

Bottle dated 12/9/15, pours a blush clear amber with a medium white head. Aroma of oak and horse blanket, vinous red wine and fruit. Tart and sour grape, light sweetness, yeasty funk, mellow oak, lacto yogurt, lively carbonation. Awesome!
