Bottle: Poured a lightly hazy golden color ale with a small white foamy head with limited retention and some minimal lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light vinous notes also noticeable. Taste is a bit of a mess with limited cohesion and no sense of direction. Tart notes are easily distinguishable with Chardonnay notes not nearly as noticeable. Body is light with very low carbonation. I either got a bad bottle and just don’t enjoy this beer.

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy white head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour and tart with malt, grain, butter, and white wine aromas. Taste is much the same with a fruity flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Draft serving at the old taproom into a snifter, reviewed from notes. Hazy, yellow to orange in color with a light, fading head. Tart green fruits - grape, citrus, apple - make for an acidic character with a lightly flavored malt backbone. Dry with touches of oak. Moderate carbonation with a crisp, lighter mouthfeel. Hay, bread, lemon. Quite simple and refreshingly tart.

Serving type: on-tap

Incredible smooth and drinkable. Unique pleasurable aroma, yes white wine, saison, spice.Tart fruit and well controlled. A world of lace, white head on peachy golden body. A little spice heat burn on finish.
Thanks Jason Bach for this expensive little diamond.
