Notes/Commercial Description:
The Western Slope of Colorado, just a short trip over the Rocky Mountains, is the perfect place to find new ingredients for an excursion in brewing. Jaunt is a process, or journey, marrying a delicate pale ale with Colorado grown Riesling grapes and aged on oak, just for pleasure. The final blend boasts a creamy malt body, a bright and crisp fruity finish, and just a dash of vanilla from the oak. 7.6%

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750 ml bottle. Pours clear straw yellow with a big bubbly white head that retains well and leaves little lacing.

The aroma is sweet grape juice, with some musty earthiness.

The flavor is sweet grapes / white wine on a malty body with a dry finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with prickly carbonation.

Overall, it's interesting - tastes a lot like a malty sweet white wine.

Appearance - pours with a lot of carbonation, so be prepared! it leaves lots of little bubbles on top of a orangish straw color.

Smell - some earthy straw up front that finishes with some woody subtle flavor. as this one warmed up the grape came out a bit more

Taste - riesling comes out more and more as this warms up. earthy undertones create a nice balance

mouthfeel - very carbonated for sure

overall - it was just missing that knockout punch for me. fun beer and I am sure I will enjoy my second bottle, but at that price point I can find better beers.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a semi-hazed gold/pear color with a thumb of ivory colored head. Stays effervescent, great lacing & good head retention

S: White wine & sweet malt, faint pineapple & a little grapefruit rind once warm

T: Pineapple, pears, white grape, persimmons & ever so faint grapefruit up front. A little grainy sweetness as this warms, Honeycrisp apples as this warms, white grape, dryness (Riesling all over the place) & a little bit of lemon too. Finishes super crisp, pineapple notes, a little dryness & some pink grapefruit

MF: Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, skews fruity

Highly drinkable, not always a fan of this wine barrel aged beers, but this one works for me. Didn't floor me, well worth a go if the pricepoint doesn't scare you
