Thanks to Michael for sharing this one. Batch 5.
Beer pours a clear light yellow without much head - it's really not much to look at. The smell here is excellent - white wine, oak and lactic sourness really come together nicely to make a mouthwatering aroma. The flavor too is fantastic, it's incredibly vinous and pretty sour with a nice grape aspect to it to go along with a little bit of oak. You can definitely see how the white wine factored in here, as it's one of the more wine-forward beers I've had. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied but coats the mouth very nicely. Overall, this is a great beer and a must try for wine lovers who also happen to enjoy sour beers. It's what I hoped Russian River Temptation would be.

very cool blonde sour from captain lawrence. this brew pours a very pale almost clear shade of yellow with the faintest purple tint from the grapes, nearly imperceptible, not quite as much head as i would like. fruity aromatic with some strong acidic notes. oaky and sour for sure, but very interesting from a yeast standpoint, lots of brett has dried this right out. some very light malt and straw cereal properties, and the grapes are only subtle, contributing more of a tannic vibe than real fruit flavor. insanely light body and well enough carbonated, this is rather easy drinking as sours go, a very delicately put together and well balanced brew. would be curious to try some with a little age on it.
