neongolden (1860) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2017
(Tap sample @ CBC 2016 Green Session, Copenhagen) Pours hazy pale gold with a white head. Notes of tart white wine grapes with a little lemon, moderate funk, oak, touches of pale malt and pit fruit sweetness balancing what's a moderately sour beer, slightly crisp, lingering acidic white wine finish. Light to medium bodied, zippy carbonation. Quite solid and refreshing, well balanced if lacking a huge wow factor.

onceblind (10701) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 18, 2017
Hazy slightly deep golden with a thin ring of white foam. Gentle blonde sour nose with a kiss of sweetness and sweet white wine and a kiss of oak. Lovely gently sour flavor that’s gently white grape sweet tones and a gentle lingering apple tartness with a oaked and funky tart finish. Gentle sweet fruity finish.

574deadzone (1419) - North Central, Indiana, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Pours a pretty clear golden without much of a head. Nose involves sweet tarts, some funkiness, and white grapes. More tart than sweet, not too insane but almost a bit clashing. Lighter bodied, low carb, slick, with a long tart grape finish. Ultimately not my thing. Not really into grapes or excessively sour stuff, and while this had sweet balance, it just didn’t work for me. Nowhere near dry enough on the finish, and at 8% it needs dryness. I can appreciate what they were doing to a point, and I’m sure many others would fine this fascinating and fun to drink. Not me though.
