4.29/5 rDev +6.5%
Had this at Birch and Barley in a tumbler glass.
Appearance: light brown with no head or lacing. That is a first.
Smell: Unusually muted although there is a grape character with some vinous notes. Some vinegar and touch of sourness come through.
Taste: tart, vinegary, very grapey, effervescent, musty, touch of malt, red wine, slight funk.
mouthfeel: super smooth and refreshing.
Overall: Solid beer and great thirst quencher. Is it the best tart beer I have had? No. But would definitely drink again if given the opportunity.

appearance is a soft bronze/amber color
with an aroma of wine and a touch of alcohol.
taste is a delicious blend of malty sweetness and vine fruit that hits your tongue initially but is followed by lactic tartness quickly. if there is any brett flavor its very subdued.
mouthfeel is dry and crisp but not sharp with very little carbonation.
overall this is not a complex brew but is hugely drinkable and delicious and maintains a great balance. i could consume copius amounts of this in the winter or summer its that good.

330 ml bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy orange/amber color with about a quarter inch off-white head that fizzled away quickly. Not much lacing at all. Aroma seems a bit weak, it smells like red grapes, cherries, and grainy malt/wheat. The brew tastes like red grapes/wine, tart cherries, raisins, and grainy/wheat malt. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit slick with moderate carbonation. I think it's an OK brew, but I can't say I was impressed with it. Worth a try once, but I don't think I'd buy it again. $6.49 a bottle.

Burnt orange cloudy color in the body. Little head that quickly dissipates. Served in a tulip. A fairly lackluster appearance.
Smells gross. Like smelly cheese. Then a little lactic smell. Some light malt aroma in there as well, like a bready note.
Nothing like a lambic. Lightly tart up front. Lightly. Bitterness is more in the finish. All is run through with a strong vinous quality. Bartender told me he thought there were Pinot noir grapes added. Not sure if that is true, but with the amount of grape flavor, it wouldn't surprise me.
Lighter body. Bright carbonation. Decent.
Not the greatest but nothing terrible. I wouldn't order again. I like the tart, vinous character but the aroma was pretty rank.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C. Served alongside L'Amoureuse No. 1 (Blanche). Review from notes.
The beer is reddish and fairly hazy with a small head. The aroma brings grapes, funk, acidity, bread, grains. Definitely the better of the two beers. Smoother with more going on. More pronounced fruit. Tasty grape character throughout. Very enjoyable.

330 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Hazy almost red/almost purple. Not much of head, but very wispy and a thin uneven collar.
Smell - Much sharper acidity than the white grape one. A touch of grain and tons of fruitiness.
Taste - Great musty grape flavor. Grainy. Medium tang to it. Better than the other version.
Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Feels kinda light as a result.
Overall - Better fruit flavor and a nice tang to this one. Pretty good.

A: Pours a pink-ish orange-ish amber color with a bit of fizzy white head, which dissipates nearly instantly. A ring around the edge of the glass retains enough to leave a bit of lacing.
S: Sweet candy cherry and other fruit, with a bit of wheat, and a little vinous.
T: Lots to unpack. It's a bit sweet, a bit tart, has a bit of wheaty yeasty astringency, but the overall flavor is relatively subtle. It's worth going slowly and trying to notice different aspects, since there are lots of flavors there, they just don't jump out.
M: Medium to light body, medium carbonation.
Overall, an interesting and pretty good beer, but more interesting than strictly enjoyable; worth trying though.
