Another goodie brought out by Dyan for our Graduation Tasting! Very, very appreciated!

A: Very surprised at how light this was. The lightest colored sour I have ever had. Pours a light yellow, almost lemon juice colored with an absolutely white head. Very spritzy and carbonated.

S: The smell on this was incredible. Very, very tart lemon juice, dry oak, lemon soaked white grapes, nice chardonnay and other tart, light fruits.

T: The taste did not hold up to the smell. It was good. Very good, but just did not hold up to the other sours I've had. Like my buddy Deuane mentioned, it tasted like a light lemon spritzer. Great flavor and highly drinkable, just light and not as complex.

Overall, thanks again to Dyan for this excellent sour!

Edit: Had batch 2 and it has really blossomed. The sour funk really picked up and the complexity increased. Great stuff.

What a wonderful AWA- amazing how the grape has held up.

Aroma is kind of soft- light grape and wine aromas, slightly tart, and hints of violet, cherry, and vanilla

Taste is pure tart and grape. Just lovely. Amazing how much the flavor has held up. Oak barrel character is perfectly balanced with the fruit and tart components.

Great beer. Find it. Enjoy it.
