UPDATED: NOV 14, 2017 Bottle from downtown beer store - pour wheat like. Nose is pineapple and sour and body is somewhat thin throughout and pineapple balanced by sour and wine complexity. Finish is yeast and cereal and malt. Drinks smooth and good balance. Would like the alcohol a bit higher but otherwise wouldn’t change at all.

(En fût à la source): L'acidité grasse du fruit à noyau dans une soupe vineuse, poussiéreuse et entière. Impressionnant pour 4%. nickd717 (4886) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 5, 2017
Bottle from City Beer Store. Hazy golden yellow with a large, lacy white head. Aroma is great, pineapple, floral notes, citrus rind, oak, sweaty horse. Flavor is great, dry, mildly tart, citrusy and tropical, herbal, crisp. Excellent feel, light and crisp with lively carbonation and a clean finish. Really good! koleminer20 (3976) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2017
From notes. Pour at Zwanze Day 2017 at Jolly Pumpkin on September 23. This one is pretty good. The pour is a brighter yellow gold color with a thick white head and a good bit of lace as it falls down to a film. The aroma is funky and tart big time. There is a nice tropical fruit to it with a strong oak and wine addition late. The yeast is a little off, and the malts come through in a metallic fashion on the nose. It’s not too bad, but there is a little messiness about it. The flavor is a little better. The yeast and malt dominate, letting the oak and wine character come through late. There is a nice citrus and tropical fruit that don’t quite mesh with the wine, but it’s decent. The mouth feel is light and clean with an effervescence about it and a lingeringly sweet yeastiness and a kiss of tropical fruit. Not too shabby. 6 4 6 4 14 DiarmaidBHK (5900) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2017
Sampler at Beer Meets Wood. Pours golden with a white head. Has some nice barnyard and wood notes on the nose and tongue and yet it remains very delicate on the mouth. Nice.

Sample at the production facility during the "Jackie O's Uptown Bottle Release" on 08/11/2017. Slightly hazy straw-gold color with a medium thin white head that evaporates quickly to a film. Short stringy lacing. Aroma of funky yeast, fruit and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of herbal yeast, vinous oak, citrus and biscuit malt. The finish is oaky with a wine and yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall. PhillyCraft (7923) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2017
At FOFA, clear yellow golden with small head. Notes of dirty brett, wine, oak, sweet malt, and other sweet fruits. Wasn’t in to this one but others in our group were. drfabulous (8577) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - AUG 6, 2017
Bottle shared at Todd’s. Light yellow in color with some lemon and overall tartness. Nice. Panzuriel (2371) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Appearance: Very hazy lemon yellow with a thin ring of tiny white bubbles.
Nose: Light, crisp, tart. Faint aroma similar to a dry white wine. Very pinot grigo
Taste: similar to the nose. Light, crisp verging on tart. Just a faint white grape hint mid to finish. elegant
Body: lighter. Soft carbonation.
Parting thoughts: The style was listed as Grisette. I have no idea what that is. it was a little like a sour, yet the wine notes were very different. It was also darn tasty.
