COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Mesa- A new school testament to the tradition of brewing beer with grapes. It is a blend of 25% Santa Lucia highland Riesling from Mer Soleil Vineyard and 75% Pilsner from Cismontane. This beer is brewed entirely with Nelson Sauvin hops. Soured with Lactobacillus to enhance the natural grape acidity and fermented with a blend of wine and beer yeast. This process highlights the flavors that beer and wine have in common. The collaboration beer made by longtime friends Charlie Wagner and Evan Weinberg.

mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle pours golden yellow with a very lage white hes that dies almost instantly. Aroma is light and fruity, definitely get the wine notes, some grassy notes in the background, seems to be a bit of lemon as well. Taste is nice and lightly tart, goes into a sweet white grape taste, nice sweet and tart balance, finishes sweet funky and dry. Very nice brew.

[2/11/15] Draught at Toronado in San Francisco. Clear golden. Aroma of apples, grapes and white wine. Flavor is yeasty, spicy, slightly sweetish, with a light acidic note with apples and grapes. Medium-bodied. Interesting. Couldve been nicer if it had more sourness.

teorn88 (6974) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
22oz bottle at the Kings Arms, London. It pours a clean pale straw color with a small white head. Aroma is winey, dusty, citrusy, vinegarish an lightly grainy. Taste is similarly odd with a mix of tart citrus and bitter grass and grains. Not sure about this one

fiulijn (19647) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Draught at Stateside, Vancouver
Hazy deep blond color. Fruity, grapey aroma, light vinegar. The mouthfeel is not exactly sweet, but its soft, with low bitterness; you can feel the grapes, but it doesnt have the kind of kick that other breweries like Montegioco have when making these crossovers.

Sampled during RBSG. From notes. Loads of dry grape, very champagne like. Heavy on the acidic side.

Bottle. My first from this brewery and not a very impressive start. Cloudy orang appearance .Flat with virtually no head. Sharp with a bitter edge. A strange drinking experience that I wouldnt like to repeat.

500 ml bottle, No. 2, 12/19/13:B2 printed on the label. Served in a chalice, the beer pours a clear gold with about an inch white head that fizzled away very quickly. Pretty much no lacing at all. Minutes after pouring the beer, its still easy to see a bunch of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass to the top. The brew smells like sweet and doughy malt, white grapes/wine, apples, and pilsner malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but theres also some tart green apple, orange peel and pear flavors noticeable. Its sweeter tasting than I expected it to be. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, its refreshing and well carbonated. Im still not sure what I think of this, too bad I only had this one bottle. I do know that I enjoyed it, and its definitely worth a try! $9.99 a bottle.
