4.7/5 rDev +11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Pours a very clear golden yellow with tiny white bubbles around the edges. some dusting in the middle of the glass
S: Aroma of tart lactic acid and oak barrel aging. Very sour and slightly sweet malt presence
T: Lactic flavors off the bat with a strong triple / quad blend of malt flavors. Riesling like flavors and grape juice flavors with a sweet candied sugar presence. Slight twang like sour bite at the end. Very complex and fruity as well as oaky, and mouth puckering. Lemon rind, and even a strong caramelized sugar flavor in here from the quad / triple blend. Overall a higher abv than I had thought until hopping on here to see it at 9%.
M: Medium body for the style, clearly a higher abv than most at this style. Lots of carbonation.
O: overall, a very flavorful and complex Wild Ale. Carbonation really shines for a beer at this high an abv, tons of sugary caramel flavors that blend to make this a well balanced wild ale with a lot to offer.

3.7/5 rDev -12.5%

2012 Project; Hazy golden pour. Medicinal welch's grape, tart and earthy aroma. Nice oaky flavor and lactic acidity on the front end. The grape is present and overly sweet up front with a strong white wine like alcohol backbone. The flavor dies out with a mild earthiness. Carbonated with large bubbles which didn't help the mouthfeel. I ended up drinking a glass and switching to the white wine my wife had opened. Not a bad beer by any means just disappointing given the price and my expectations. I wasn't expecting Vigneronne but this beer really needs some funk to balance out the sweetness and add some complexity.
