4.47/5 rDev +9%
bright, golden, amber color right out of the gate. A very nice, and slightly hazy looking consistency to it, I did notice copious amounts of bubbles coming up through it, throughout the session.
The aroma was very nice and tart. Huge aromas of Brett coming off of this immediately, turning the whole experience over to the funk that was in the glass, very nice to see. lots of grapes and geapeskins with a nice sour and fruit like finish that was draped in dry oak like taste. deep, resonant sour taste, seems to be a little more tame that what I was expecting, nice tones of wood raveled in throughout as well. Really well blended, the aging is really coming into play here now. Very dry finish with the long lingering taste of sour Brett that as time fades,

^^^ AGAIN you review first. GRrrr....
A- Gold, haze and some very very sparse head. Actually found solid chunks of (I guess grapes????) floaties/sinkies in the bottle and some that came into the glass. I like that. I like that a lot.
S- Has a nice tart but very subtle nose, with bright fruit, sweet typical Bruery malt background and a little bit of airy funkiness here and there.
T- The equivilant of a nice cask ale in carbonation, but it leaves room for the nice grapey middleground that is promised in the name. This is where Bruery trumps 10/10/10 in their attempt to make a grape beer. Has a balanced sourness, that isn't ambient but rather blends into the rest of the beer. Lots of bright fresh and over ripe fruit and some sweetness in the finish.
M- Even though its not carbonated as much as a "regular" beer, it has a creamy, firm and lasting mouthfeel. Very nice.
D- For 8.4% its very smooth and a damn good beer to boot.
