look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Pours a murky yellow-orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of grain, grape juice, grape jelly, fruit, floral, and slight funk aromas. Taste is much the same with grape juice, grape jelly, yeast, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but the smells on this one work slightly better together in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.

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

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.

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.

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.
