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.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch 2. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Big white head. Hazy yellow orange. Excellent retention. Very nice lacing.

Smell - Spicy. Sweet malt makes its way through. Brett? Not sure. A touch of wine. Yeasty.

Taste - Brett comes through a lot here. Wine much more prevalent also. Pepper and a little acidic in the finish. A touch of pale malt sweetness and even a little bit bitter.

Mouthfeel - Dry, except for the wine sweetness. Well carbonated.

Overall - Really nice. Lots of complexity. Never had Arthur but I look forward to it now.

Bottle: Poured a hazy and somewhat dirty golden color ale with a superb large foamy head with great retention and some really good lacing. Aromas of Brett notes are quite dominant with some refreshing white wine vinous notes. Taste is a superb mix between some white wine grapes, some light balanced funky Brett notes with light dry finish and some light oaks notes can also be detected. Rustic malt notes are well balanced and help keep the whole thing together. Body is quite full with great carbonation. Very complex and also easily drinkable beer.
