Oui Oui is the second in our Vitis Series. For this version, we aged our sour blonde ale in used wine barrels along with chardonnay grapes. The resulting ale has a pleasant funk with resounding similarities to a California chardonnay wine." It’s an RS only release.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle via trade with Eric, served in my Duvel snifter: Pours a hazy golden hue with not much head nor lace, like a slightly carbonated lambic. The aroma is heavy with vinegar, oak, white grapes, barnyard funk and biscuity grains. There is sadly a noticeable acetic/acetone/medicinal note on both the nose and palate that detracts. The taste is expectedly soured and lightly fruity with a moderately tannic finish. The mouth feel is more akin to a heavier bodied wine than beer. It was nice to have try this but I honestly had enough after half a bottle, the nail polish like overtones are just too much.

Pours hazy tangerine with a small white, quick dissipating head. Smell huge white wine and oak, vinous and spritzy, big funky brett presence. Taste sweet and sour, peach and lactic, brett, funk, honey and vanilla cream, earthy finish. Very strong flavor, not that deep but amazing sour, tart, and funk. Smooth and light/medium body. Very impressed.

MacBoost (1916) - Victor, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Pours a hazed orange with no head. Intense aromas of bacterial funk, crotch cheese, vagina. Intense. Fecal. Necrophelia. Sharp. Like an orgy of fine French cocks in my mouth. Finishes with a burst of homoerotic. Jesus. This beer is damn near perfect.

JohnnyJ (5570) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle. Clear yellow pour, no head. Very acidic sourness, vinegar, chardonnay grapes, lots of oak, a bit buttery, and light fruit. It’s okay, not the greatest sour, by ok.

olr1984 (1500) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 22, 2013
750ml pours bright yellow with zero head. Strong wine and oak aromas. Very tart. As it warms it mellows out to more of a ripe grape taste.

Pinball (12167) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2013
cloudy yellow, nohead. fruity and (intelligble) aroma, oranges. flavor is very sourish, astringent, a bit too wild, too much nail polish , otherwise fruity. fruit peely grapefruity.

SlackerMads (3406) - DENMARK - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle. Hazy pale yellow with no head. Aroma is acetone, petrol, grapes, chardonnay, oak. Taste is medium sour and sweet. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Dry light sour finish with a bit of sweetness in the back.

TimE (5953) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 8, 2013
hazy golden color. Flat, no head. Very very sour nose with lemon juice, oak and a bit of chard. The mouth isn’t nearly as tart as the nose. The finish changes many different directions with a interesting saltiness in the end. Chard character also pops up more in the finish. Great depth. Lots of oak and chard in the mouth.

T - Sweet wheat, sharp sourness, chardonnay, oak, vanilla, green apple, peach, and other tart green fruits, lemon zest, funky yeasts, lactic acid, and a bit of booze.
