Abbreviated review: sweet Reisling, white raisins, and a touch of green apple sourness on a thin body.

3.08/5  rDev -20.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 3

Appearance -The pour was a very light and clear golden yellow with almost no head.

Aroma -The Aroma is pretty one dimensional, grapes and must.

Taste -The taste was mostly sweet with a little bit of tartness towards the end.

Mouthfeel -The body was very light and effervescent.

Overall - It was actually a little disappointing not very sour and in comparison to the no. 2 it was overly dominated by the grapes.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

330ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip glass.

A: Pours a quite cloudy pale yellow color forming a minimal bubbled white head. Minimum retention and some thin and lingering lacings in the glass

S: Great perfume of grapes. Strong notes of white wine, sweet pale malts, vanilla, wood and bready yeasts

T: Sweet, malty and very fruity upfront. Notes of white grapes, vanilla, oak. Smooth taste: A good balance between sweetness and bitterness with nice touch of sour. The bitterness prevails in the very end

M: Medium body. A bit molasses. Low carbonation and a good fruity bitter-sweetness aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Quite smooth for its 8%. A winner. Recommended

On draft at Churchkey in D.C. Served alongside L'Amoureuse No. 2 (Rouge). Review from notes.

The lighting was pretty dim, but the beer appears straw yellow with a bit of haze. The aroma brings grapes, grape skins, funk, some acidity. Some grain and bread in the flavor with a bit of a puckering finish. A tad sharp, but not offensive. I preferred the No. 2 to this, but still, this is a solid offering I would have again.

3.26/5  rDev -16%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

330 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy yellow orange. No head. Just a couple of bubbles at the edge.

Smell - Fruity. Light grain malt. Some slight acidity.

Taste - Much fruitier. More distinct grape flavor. Grainy still and has a sharper acidity that I wouldn't call tartness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Very light tartness.

Overall - Nice fruit flavor and not a lot else. Tastes good though.

4.41/5  rDev +13.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Color - A lovely slightly orangey gold

Aroma - some woodiness from the Gewurtztraminer barrel? Fruity, thick, yeasty winey.

Taste - do you like a white wine? Do you know non-beer drinkers who drink white wine? This is one to seek out to convert to a wine drinker to beer! The fruit clearly coming through here. You can convert a wine drinker with this one.

Mouthfeel - perfectly dense

Drinkability - DONE!

Now to the wordier part; I must state, I like spicy dry white wine, so this was bound to be a winner. I rarely look at a beer over 7% and say I need to get that, but when the bartender said "Gewurtztraminer", I said "I need that one"!

The dryness at the finish is exactly what works for me in a higher ABV fruitier beer.

I really dig the fruit and yeast interplay here and there is nothing negative I can possibly say.

I am so glad I got to have this on tap at Strangelove's in Philly !

4.24/5  rDev +9.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a cloudy pale straw color with a tiny amount of white head. There's really just a rim around the edge of the glass, though that's enough to leave a few spots of lacing here and there.

S: Fruity white wine with a bit of funky yeast. It's unusual, but nice.

T: Mildly sweet; the witbier base is more noticeable here, with a mild wheat flavor throughout. The vinous note is prominent towards the finish and especially the aftertaste, though it does come in earlier if you look for it. It does not taste like 8% at all.

M: Light to medium body, medium carbonation. The overall effect is very light and drinkable.

Overall, light, drinkable, flavorful, interesting, and stronger than it seems.
