Golden in color. Minimal lacing with no head what so ever. Aroma is brocchili. Aroma is sweet but yummy. A little sour in the taste. Thin texture with Average carbonation. I don’t know what is going on but this is doable. Nellie (349) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Very much enjoying this. Typically the fresh stone beers are pretty hoppy and bitter but this is nice and complex with minimal bitterness. Can definitely taste the muscat grapes. Also a little floral funky. Great beer! IPAsavedMYlife (346) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Drinking 11/10/11Smell is Chamomile, belgian yeast, apricots, alcohol, and apples. Poured fairly flat. Light orange color not a whole lot of carbonation. Taste is lots of carbonation, apple sauce, belgian yeast. Mouthfeel is light, taste is snappy. Some alcohol burn. Probably not the best bottle conditioning on this one. The taste is a bit disjointed and amateurish. Not what I remember at all. Enjoyability 3/5 Hopswagger (344) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Celebrating the Vertical Epic Series
P: Clear golden body with active carbonation.
S: Clean, banana, bubblegum, floral, subtle spices, cirtus and white grapes.
T/M: Citrus hops, apricots, white grapes, acidic, zesty lime and lemon and yeast. Dry wine feel syrupy stickiness and tart puckering finish.
O: Similar to white wine with tart grapes and dry finish. Really nice and clean.

Not the best vertical epic I have tasted. Still the pour is pretty amber with a small white head. On the nose I do pick up some of the muscat and Gewurztraminer notes that I would associate with wines made from tose grapes. On the palate it is well balanced between hops sweetness and fruit.

Interesting aroma, jelly beans, coriander, grapes, and grapefruit. Smell is rather dry and tart, with a pear after taste. Good but not what not as interesting as some of it’s predecessors. jumpjet2k (330) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2010
On tap at the Petrol Station in November. Very clear light orange with absolutely no head or lacing - odd.. The nose is spicy and a bit tart. The flavor brings a nice blend of citrusy hops and some mild citric acid tartness with a little Belgian spice in the background. Quite a tasty brew. Very hard to classify this one in my mind - a hoppy tripel? Belgian IPA? How about just tasty brew? RamyG4 (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small-medium white head. Aroma is white wine, grapes, spicy Belgian yeast. Taste is very sweet, more white wine and spice from the yeast. Finish is dry, slightly tart. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Not bad, interesting. drunkenpolack (322) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2012
10.10.10 pours a glowing golden color. White fluffy head pours with good lacing. Smell consists of Belgian yeast, sweet malt, and grapes. There is a hint of alcohol that burns the nose hairs a bit.
While the grapes were evident in the aroma they are even more evident in the taste. The grape flavor just keeps on adding up here. But so is the alcohol. Burns the throat. I’ll be interested to see if the heat dies down over time on this one. Rounding it out is kind of a per-fumy taste. It’s weird. Then of course the Belgian Yeast, some citrus, and a earthy characteristic. It’s a weird beer but it somehow works. Funny thing is, I had a friend come into work today and tell me he had the same beer last night and he couldn’t stand it. He hated the grapes in the beer. This is why we review beer. I love other peoples opinions.
Mouthfeel was slick but on the thicker side. Syrupy.
