750ml into a tulip. The brew appears pale yellow in color with a fizzy white head that shows little retention. It holds with just a penline of lace around the edges of the glass.
The aroma is primarily white wine with some earthy brett funk and slight lacto presence. It is a pretty simple nose that is very vinous and mildly wild but fantastic nonetheless.
The taste is tart and strongly vinous with white grape skin. Some sips yield a mild grain sweetness but there is plenty of funk and earth. Some yogurt when warm with lemony lacto.
This is a light bodied brew with a light amount of carbonation. A little alcohol impact but very vinous and enjoyable. It is easy drinking to say the least. As advertised, this is a hybrid of white wine and blonde wild, at times you could forget which you are drinking.

a very odd beer wine hybrid here, this one using white grapes instead of red ones, its a little more subtle, but to me is overdone, tasting more like wine than beer. moderately hazy pale yellow color, like a big chardonnay, save for the small white head and visible carbonation. the nose is white wine all the way, some oaky sweetness, and then just a bit of wheat malt to round it out. no hops or yeast at all. a little lactic funk, but its way back. the flavor is similarly dominated by the grape. its fruity and juicy, a little tart, a lot tannic, and pretty tasty, but its hard to find a beer in here. more of a fruit drink or a wine than anything. i think it needs more grain to balance the fruit, or maybe a more robust grain, there is just too much grape happening. i do like the woody mellowness to it all, and found a small glass to be the right amount of this for me. light bodied and perhaps refreshing in the right context. a good attempt, but the beer world is still waiting for a truly magical beer/wine hybrid. i dont know if a sour type beer is the right format for this either, but it makes it interesting.
