Feels/tastes more like a wine than a beer. But thats not necessarily a bad thing. Probably wont try this beer again but its something everyone should try once.

Draught at The Old Toad Dogfish Head Fest 5. Very pale gold with no head. Nose of grape, must, dust. Think and dry, with flavors of grape, wine, apples, light hops. Like the mixture of a dry white wine with a dry cider. Nicely fruity. Enjoyable and unique.

Gold pour, nice white head. Aroma of grapes, yeast, peaches, wheat, spice. Flavor is tart but not overly sour. Some white wine notes are there for sure, with some wheaty beer, yeasty goodness and the lightest touch of hops. Man this was tasty as hell!

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Bomber. Poured straw with a medium-sized white head. Aroma was very vinous, fruity, plus some grassy hops. Flavor was vinous, fruits and grapes, slightly musty with an intriguing earthy, yeasty presence quite different from any other beer Ive had. Nice balance between the moderate sweetness and mild tartness. Finished pretty dry. Slightly thick palate. Tasted a whole lot like a pinot grigio! Good beer and something very different.

Bottle consumed at City Beer,. Pours clear blonde with a tiny off-white head and a winey aroma. There is a slightly sour fruit flavor with a very dry finish that sticks to the palate.

Pours a clear golden yellow color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Sweet, slightly earthy aroma with funky yeast and earthy hops countered by bread, yeast, biscuity malt and light fruit. Light grapes, apple and alcohol. Medium bodied with a good amount of earthy, musty funk that is overtaken by a strong, sweet vinous presence. Hints of grassy hops and funky yeast followed by prominent vinous grapes as well as some apple, pear and sweet booze. Not much heat though with a well masked abv. Just a bit too sweet for my liking and could use some more funk for balance. Decent but a bit one dimensional.
