FROTHINGSLOSH (8472) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a hazy apricot-amber color with a large foamy white head that left great lacing. The aroma was sweet fruits, white wine, grape and vague fruity hops. The flavor was tangy white wine, grape, musty, yeasty, bubblegum and a bit of a boozy presence. Very long finish. Moderately full bodied. Interesting. robinvboyer (4882) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
Tap at the brewpub. Strong woody, vinous qualities from the white wine barrel. Qute yeasty, and bready with slme citrus and leafy green hops. Cereals are there, but a little muted. Medium to high bitter finish, more wood, and quite acidic. Niall73 (2463) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2015
Tap at brew bar. Pours light Amber with a white head. Lemon, light egg custard aroma. Medium body, light carbonation. Lemon, light orange, white bread... Could do with being sourer. OK.

[5769-20130907] Tap. Oddly ginger-spiced grainy aroma, like a shot of something boozy. Slightly hazy, orange body with a quick foamy white head. More light ginger in the flavour with a lot more boozy grains. Medium body. Interesting. (6/3/7/3/14) 3.3

Cherry, lemon, and bubble gum. Cloudy yellowish amber with a thin white head. Lemon, apple, pear, and grapes. Great one.

Draft - Sour grapes and some barrel notes. Cloudy yellow gold with a decent white. Funky oak notes, white grape, lacto and some oak. Awesome. JoeMcPhee (10271) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Pale golden pour. The aroma is very soft and funky blight Brett and a touch of vineous wine barrel character. Soft fruit skin, apple, pear and some berry character. A touch of light spice and some kiwi character. Damn - really, really tasty. mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014

Pours a translucent orange with a ring of head. Smells of oak and cherries. Barrel flavour with a subtle tartness and finishing with some fruit sweetness.
No one mentioned at Indie it was aged in wine barrels. Explains a lot.
Tap at Indie. Pours a clear blonde with white head. Nose is full of fruits and cherries and vanilla. Nice flavour of Belgian yeast, with reoccurrences of that vanilla and cherry discovered in the smell, as well lovely soft malts. Hops really don’t make a big play in this beer at all. Would never classify this as a IPA. Really an excellent beer, very, very drinkable. neongolden (2259) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
(Draught at the brewpub, May 17 2014) Pours a clear pale copper with a thin white ring of head, no lace. Aroma is predominately white wine with some wood, a little pit fruit, light herbal hop character. On the tongue, again very white wine heavy, slightly buttery wood, a little floral, touch of yeast spice. Slightly sour/acidic but not much, a little malt sweetness, finish is rather weak and watery with a bit of hops. Body medium, soft carb. Definitely doesn’t present as an IPA, more like a Belgian PA or blonde, lots of barrel. I didn’t think it was as complex as it could’ve been and I wish it had finished with more punch, still decent.
