The head is a nice fluffy white that lats quite a while. The beer itself is a nice orange and clear gold color.
The beer has a grainy and bready smell with hints of the white grapes coming through. The grapes aren't very powerful but they certainly overpower the hops. The beer also smells of pears.
The beer tastes as it smells but the grapes are more noticeable and blend well with the yeast and bready malt flavor. The grapes do come out more as the beer warms and blends even better with the yeast and pear tastes. The beer has a very pear aftertaste.
The beer feels medium bodied but very smooth with biting carbonation. The beer leaves a particularly dry finish.
A pretty decent and unique that I will probably pick up again if I can find it on sale.

On draft at Duckworth's in Cornelius, North Cackalacky.
Damn fine beer - looks great in the glass, billowing head and thick creamy lacing. There's just the perfect amount of funk to the nose and taste, wonderful sweet vinegar presence as well as dark ripe fruit - plums come to mind. Creamy mouthfeel. This is an amazing beer that would appeal to most anyone, great entry to sours for the novice and enough complexity for the purist. Wonderful brew.
Serving type: on-tap
