4.28/5 rDev +4.4%
a: pours a mostly golden color with no head retention.
s: smells like a sweet white wine. kinda of grainy and a little tart.
t: apricot notes come through along with a sweet grape taste. definitely tart but drinkable at the same time.
m: the sweetness makes this feel a little thick but the tartness and dryness mostly cuts through it.
o: nice beer. If I didn't know any better I would guess this was an Allagash beer.

Poured into a Ommegang flute from a 750ml bottle.
A - A very aggressive pour yields no head at all with some slight random bubbles collection on the sides of the glass. The color is nice and pale amber with tons of golden hints. Very attractive color. (4.0)
S - Copious vinous notes. Smells like a Champagne. Dry woody oak notes permeate throughout along with a nice acidic tartness. Slight vinegar is present as well. There are some perceived wheat notes as well as some nice earthy grain and slight bread. Very nice aroma. (4.5)
T & M - Starts off with some nice grape notes. Very vinous almost like a buttery Chardonnay. There is some nice tartness to the brew that is made a bit mild by some woody notes. The grape notes are amazing. This brew is so smooth. The grape notes are amazing mixed in with some nice slight fruit juice sweetness and very nice funk. The body is light and refreshing with lower CO2 but with a nice slight oily dry and sour finish. (5.0)(4.5)
O - Aging this brew probably smoothed it out a bit and IMO it taste amazing with nice sweetness pulling throughout the the tart grape notes to make a very approachable sour. (4.5)

At the Bruery barrel tasting
Clear golden color wih minimal head. No lacing. Sour grapes and a bit of oak in the nose. Tart grapes, mild funk and wood flavors dominate. Great wine characteristics. There's a nice lingering tartness in the finish. Medium body with very little carbonation. Very tasty. I really like the super tart, winey qualities. Wish they'd bottle this again. Recommended.
