deep red color with little transparency. Nice funk in the nose with slight hints of the oak barrels. tartness is nicely balanced. just a wee bit to carbonated for my liking, but not holding that against it. Crisper than i thought it would be.

A-Pours rusty burnished orange with a thin khaki head. No lacing.

S-Vinous tartness. Musty old wine barrels, watered down balsamic vinegar.

T/M-Vinous tartness on the tip of the tongue, but it fades almost instantly into fizzy carbonation driven bready malt sweetness. A thin line of white wine grape acidity carries through to the finish. Medium bodied.

O-Way too expensive for what it is. Just okay.

With Freisa grapes must.
Red color, quite dark and hazy. Almost no foam.
In the smell strong notes of grapes. Interesting. Raspberry notes. Even wood, and probably a bit of oxidation.
Same notes at the taste. Grapes, must. Very peculiar and interesting. Touch of lemon, a bit of astringency.
Maybe just a bit too sweet, but pleasant and interesting.
Raspberry, strawberry, berry fruit.

Shared this beer with Galengeueze courtesy of Matt from Capones in Philly. Poured into a tulip.
Poured a hazy reddish brown with a minimal head that quickly faded leaving no lacing.
Smell was tart with funk noted as well as grapes, oak, and vinegar.
Taste was that of cherries, oak and sour, although somewhat watered down. A subtle bitterness noticed in the finish.
Mouthfeel was tart, dry, and slightly acidic, with very minimal carbonation noted, almost like drinking a wine as opposed to a beer.
Overall this was a very interesting beer although it does not quite live up to its Belgian cousins or the wild American ales like Russian River. For the price (20 dollars for an 11 oz bottle) I would take Cantillon or RR over this any day.

On tap for the 2012 Peter Reeves Memorial Sourfest at Churchill’s Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.

Pours a clear orange-brown with a foamy beige head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with some berry, grape, wine, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with a woody finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and drinkable.

Served in a goblet at Local Option.

Apparently this just translates to "Grape Beer". Fair enough. It pours a clear amber topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises light vinegar, wheat, light cinnamon, and a pinch of brown sugar. The taste brings in more of the same, along with some maple syrup and and sweet raspberry. The sweetness and tartness seem to struggle with each other and ever really coalesce all that well. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry, sticky finish. Overall, a nice little sour thing, but one that really doesn't do much for me.

The pour is a hazed reddish/amber color with an off-white head. Smell is surprisingly catty, but very tropical as well. Lots of melon, some grass, and a definite sweetness like all their sours seem to have. The flavor is moderately tart with some of the same tropical and melon notes. Not terribly complex, but there is a little bit of grass and oak, some berries, and maybe a bit of apple.

750ml bottle purchased in Rome.

A: Pours a reddish auburn with a frothy beige head.

S: Pretty funky aroma. Mild acetic acidity, horseblanket, cherry-like sweetness.

T: Taste brings very gamey brett, light vinegary tartness, a bit grapey, some caramel maltiness.

M: Light-bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: This is a very funky beer, with the brett almost out of control. A bit more refinement would be good here.
