It's a foamer. Non aggressive pour into a tulip yielded a huge white frothy head. It very slowly retreated. A rosey-amber color. Fragrances of neutral oak, sour yeast, sour bacteria, flowers, and a little metallic. The taste follows the nose and unfortunately the metallic notes are present. High carbonation, light bodied, and smooth as silk. As far the grading metrics go this ale is all over the place. A great sour, especially when paired with a nice meal but the fact that it's a foamer is hard to get around. I will pass in the future unless it's on tap and they deal with the suds.

Bottled April/2010. From private Quebec buying group.A fresh yeast aroma, with some funk. Somewhat gushing, prewarning enabled us to treat my weeds. Cloudy orange with large soapy head. A good tartness,though builds to somewhat vinegar with repeated samples, licorice, grape. Good drinkability. Nice for the hotter weather. Neat complexity-Johnsense. Oak rounds it out.

Beer with coppery and amber color with a good foam, not overdone, but thin and compact.
Spontaneous fermentation beer (or almost), striking with scents really characterized, by the white grape to the wood, by the acid to citric.
At the taste, after an initial effect of the malt, you can feel a good woody, and an acid of an evident drying that is mixed well with a slight hint of sour fruit (plum we presume). Obviously the classic scent of grapes and "wine" is present, as in all (or most) of the beers created by Renzo Losi. In the aftertaste you are able to detect even a touch of licorice (in stick), as well as a slight bitter in confirmation of a good balance.
Beer a little hard and particular, as many Panil beer, so you may not like it, but it would be a shame to give up a taste.

Bottle: Poured a clear very light copper veering on yellow color beer with a super large white foamy head with perfect retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of tart notes without much acidity and light sweet malt base is perceptible. Taste is dominated by refreshing tart notes and lightly sweet caramel malt with light oak and not very much acidity makes for a refreshing drink. Body is full for style with perfect carbonation. Very interesting though nothing close to a barley wine.
