4.51/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a batch 1 bottle into a Prairie Teku glass on Final Four Saturday. Served cold. Courtesy of Abbbp, who is ridiculously generous.

Appearance: A small head that dissipates relatively quickly. Some lacing, but fades quickly. Hazy yellow body.

Smell: Loads of oak, some chardonnay type grape too. Mild tartness, and even a hint of what is best described as sweet, spiced raisins coming through very faintly.

Taste: Lots of vinous grape flavors. Cracker, saltine style malt provides a backbone for a mildly tart beer with some funk. Really quite delicious. Definitely get a white wine style flavor here, particularly considering the notes of oak. A little bit of alcohol comes through, but not much. The crackers stick through the finish.

Mouthfeel: Very drinkable. Moderate to low carbonation, sticks around a while, and not particularly dry.

Overall: Quite delicious. Can't say much bad about this except that I probably won't ever get a chance to taste it again. Very good stuff.

3.76/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear orange body. Small white head.

Smell - Strong grape. Like a sweet white wine. Maybe fruitier than that. Some light acidity.

Taste - One-dimensional grape flavor. Less winey. More just grape fruitiness. Some pale malt. Spike of intense yeastiness in the back end with some woodiness.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation and medium body.

Overall - Not as sour as I expected or hoped, really. I seldom say that but it would have made it a little more complex, I think.
