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." Its an RS only release.

2012 - a very pleasantly funky and acidic sour. not quite bracingly, but close. dusty, funky, citric, very wine like, but funkier!

Review from notes, bottle shared with most of the tasters choice crew and a few others a couple of years back at Matts in Haverhill. Lightly hazy golden color funky vinous grape aroma and flavor. solid puckering. Faint carbonation hinders this a bit. Decent sour, I wish I had another bottle to see it develop.

Je regrette de ne pas lavoir ouvert avant maintenant que lactique est bien tabli. Note positive: Il est enlign avec le reste. Jus de pomme rougemont saupoudr dactique et de raisins verts. Aucune effervescence, zro, pour une sensation de cidre aplati. Malgr lallure peu fire, la buvabilit est surprenante. Dsol liquide, je peux sentir llgance qui thabitait.

My final rating from Sucrversary 2014, but not the least important. I agree that this does not taste like "beer". It has ALL the characteristics of a Chardonnay. Buttery mouthfeel, vanilla, white stone fruits, and grapes. Only oddity is the light carbonation and slight sourness. Unique and important.

Bottle. Slightly hazy, yellow pour. Nearly still with minimal carbonation and no head. Heavy chardonnay in the aroma with light tart. Taste follows the aroma with a bit more tart and light funk. Relatively clean mouthfeel for the ABV. Nice wine-like beer.

djd07 (14017) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle thanks to Elliot. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with paperthin white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is oak, grapes, and funk. Thin mouthfeel with strong wine grape and oak with light sour finish. Held up very well, really enjoyed this one.

DrewFace (967) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Pours a fairly clear golden color. Very tart, acidic and barnyardy aroma. Intense acidic sour in the flavor, light fruity citrusy type character, juicy, puckering, light.

Bottle thanks to andrewface. Nose of tartness. Some cheese initially. Some wine notes. Grapey. Taste not overly tart after the first sip. But still there. While not harsh. This one is gooooooood. Some acetic burn late in the finish. One of the good sours. Very tasty

In short: Tart white grapes and more tart white grapes. Barely a beer. Not my thing.
How: Bottle 750ml, consumed when many months of age. Probably sent to me by someone, cant remember who.
The look: Cloudy pale blonde body topped by a short-lived small white head.
In long: Nose is intensely white grapes with some barnyard and vinegary notes. In mouth the beer has a somewhat lifeless mouthfeel with a juicy texture and a soft carbonation. Taste is as simplistic as the aroma. Very low on the malt front (especially for a 9% beer) and no hops presence whatsoever. This beer is all about tart white grapes and then more tart white grapes. Also some oak and vinegary notes. Not an easy to drink beer, this is truly a slow sipper. Classified as a Sour/Wild ale but to me this was more like a Fruit Beer, this beer is all about the white grapes. I wonder when people renew their Bruery Reserve Society membership, and more importantly why.
