look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Served from a 750ml C&C bottle into a Crooked Stave tullip. Cellar temp. Vintage 2011.
Appearance- Clear amber/gold with quick bubbly white head that fell quickly leaving no lacing.
Smell- I get some white grape and lemon, some oaky funk, earthy grassy aromas. My nose is a little off today.
Taste- Lots of lemon and peach with mild grapes. Not as grapey as Chardonneighbor or Muscat d'Ammore. Gueze-like characteristics with minimal fruit. Moderately sour up front, but fades off. Lots of oak.
Mouthfeel- Well carbonated, moderatly sour, reasonably dry. Moderate pucker.
Overall- A very nice sour. Easy to drink especially at 9+%.
Serving type: bottle

3.8/5 rDev -10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
A - Slightly cloudy, pale straw highlighted by gold.
S - Very, very sour white grapes.
T - Refreshingly vinous with sweet grape jam. Tart up front with an unpleasant fake grape jelly aftertaste. Referred to as 'cotton candy' in the tasting notes. 'Sweet bubblegum' would be another possible description. Chardonnay character is evident in terms of minerality and acidity.
M - Lovely carbonation with a light-medium mouthfeel.
O - For some people this might be a good beer but I did not care for the cotton-candy/fake grape sweetness at all. Alcohol was very smooth however. A miss for me. I would not be very happy if I'd payed for a bottle rather than a taster.
Serving type: on-tap
