Mourvèdre, not Sauvignon Blanc, variant. BelgianBeerGal (4243) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Draught at the restaurant watching the Tour de California. I’m not a big fan of Biere de Gardes but this was phenomenal; I think the wine barrels really made it special. It pours very still. A ruby-orange and brown colour with a small off-white head the quickly disappears/ The aroma is pink grapefruit, chardonnay and strawberries. Definitely fits the biere de garde style from the earthy, metallic notes (not bad, that’s just my crutch for IDing the style). Definitely white wine notes that trend from a dry chardonnay to Mosel Rieslings. Lasting wine finish. ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Aroma: fruity and quite vinous, bready yeast note, spicy hops, light pepper character, touch of booze. Pours a slightly hazy light amber color, off-white head is lasting and leaves a nice coating of lacing. Flavor: toasty malts, lots of wine notes, fruity esters, plums, some pepper and spice, earthy and a soft acidity, alcohol is noticeable but mellow. Medium body and carbonation. Very enjoyable brew. bytemesis (9464) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 19, 2016
Tap. Pours clear orange, small beige head, good lacing. Aroma is oak tannins, hints of butter, cherry, white wine, toffee. Flavor is light tart, oaky, a bit of fruit, lemon. Medium body. Quite nice. AcctError131151 (121) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Poured a true gold. Crystal clear with minimal head. Big bubblegum nose and flavor with this one. Some fruitiness (apples, pears) too. Strong malt backbone. Much maltier than expected. I tried six of their beers that night, and this was easily my favorite. Well done.

On tap at Capitol Hop Shop. Pours light copper with a thick off-white head and a sour fruit aroma. There is a medium-bodied sour malt flavor that is rather fruity. Nice oak finish.
