Bottle thanks to Seth. Pours a clear yellow with no head. The aroma is wine grape, cheese, herbs, buttery white wine. Thin mouthfeel, wine grape forward, light sourness, very nice.

Lots of haze yellow and some weird sediment. Smells pretty bad. Like an old peach. Very sour. Loads of tree fruit. Peach juice??? Very dry. Some sulphuric notes.

Bottle from the Railroad. Pours a very pale yellow with big chunks of brown yeast and very little head. Aroma is Apple cider, Sauvignon blanc, pineapple and acetic acid. First sip is similar with big vinous and tat qualities. Finish is dry and clean. Nice beer. Not worth $35.

750ml bottle at the brewery pours a clear gold with zero head. Nose has a lot of sweet white wine, some mild grapefruit, some lime, heavy wood pulp, a little wood solvent. Flavor has a mix of solvent-y chemicals, wood pulp, some mild herbs, worm wood, a little absinthe, white grape. Lots of riesling like character. Tart finish.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2014 Thanks to Ron for buying us a bottle during foofaa’s going away party.

A - Pours hazy golden yellow with a small film of white head, quickly dissipating down to nothing at all, leaving no lace at all on the glass.

S - Smells of lemon acidity, dash of must and barnyard funk, Greek yogurt, oak, dry white wine and some doughy pale malt. It could use a bit more funk but I think that may come with more time in the bottle.

T - Starts off with a lemony acidic twang quickly being joined by the light funk and must, dry oak, wine grapes, damp earth, yogurt and some chewy malt. Finish is pretty dry, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate to low carbonation. Tart feel with plenty of dry backing. Not as sour as the other grape versions, which is more than fine with me.

O - I really like this beer. It is quite easy to consume, packs lots of flavor and it doesn’t destroy the palate like the grape versions. I am really looking forward to seeing how this one ages, if it can develop some more musty funk it could be excellent.
