Poured into snifter. Appearance is a slightly hazy golden color with a generous bright white head. Nice head retention and heavy lace left behind. Nose starts with somewhat musty white grapes, lemon zest, and sourdough come through as well. Smells like it is going to very dry with a touch of acidic tartness. Taste has a strong dry yeasty flavor up front, minimal tartness, and a hint of fruit. The grape character comes through stronger towards the finish. The end result is somewhat blah, it is super dry and has no real character. The end is somewhat grainy. I was hoping for more tartness. The mouthfeel is highly effervescent with a light body. Overall, the aroma promised a beer with more character, the taste is not as exciting as I would have hoped for.
