2012 vintage procured at the brewery during May of 2013. Pours a dull, orange-gold hue with a hazy clarity. Head is loose and off-white and quickly dissipates into a tight, thin band around the shoulders of the glass. Nose is fantastic - lovely grape aromas with just a suggestion of tartness. Taste expresses quite a bit of fruit, a light tartness and a slightly salty character. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a mild astringency and a residual acidic burn at the back of the throat between quaffs. This beer was delicious and more than I expected. I'm quite amazed at how much I enjoyed and think it may surpass my love of fou' foune. I'd love another bottle for extended cellaring.

750 ml bottle capped and corked from Tipples. Bottles November 23, 2012 and poured May 25, 2014. Pours hazy golden with a half finger fizzy white head that dissipates almost immediately. Super musty dusty aroma, oak, funk, huge acidity, apricots, grape skins, a bit of vinegar, tart and sour smelling, very light vinous notes. Flavor is intensely acidic and sour, some floral notes on the tongue, citrus zest all the way through, dry oaky finish, and some lingering vinous warm left in the throat. Mouth puckering like whoah. As this warms it mellows a bit and the white wine notes become more present. Spritzy and prickly carbonation--lots of it--and light on the palate without sacrificing bold flavor. Super dry. Extremely clean and crisp. Good stuff.

Pours a slightly hazy golden straw with half an inch of bubbly white head that fades quickly into some wisps and a medium collar. Aroma is dry oakiness, white wine-like and a good earthiness. Taste is tart grapes, some vanilla and oak. High carbonation and low-medium body. Very tart overall and the grape plays a decent second string.
