On-tap at 2012 Hill Farmstead Harvest Fest.

Pours a cloudy light yellow with a foamy white head. Nice lacing.

Aroma is slight sour white grapes with light vinegar.

Upfront taste is moderately sour, vinegar, unripe grapes. Sourness follows through to the finish. Fruity esters linger while the sourness gradually diminishes.

Moderate/lighter body with high carbonation that fits the beer well.

Overall very enjoyable. Reminds me a bit of St. Lamvinus, but with a different style grape.
