When I first started homebrewing I wanted to clone this beer just because it sounded awesome. Then I bought the beer to actually try it and realized there was no way I was going to do it without many more years under my belt. Got a chance to check it out again on tap at the Old Toad the other night though.
Pours a light yellow, fizzy with alcohol. Aroma of light grapes and slight honey. Reminds me a lot of Champagne or a grape-y saison in the taste. Very dry but with lots of flavor. I'd say this is my beer substitue for champagne or wine, should I ever need to have one. A lot of the more astringent grape flavors combined with a honey sweetness and a light malt base to dry it out. Really great combo.
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip. Bottle date of 6/28/13.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Honey sweetness, spice, alcohol, grapes, caramel, and some bready notes.
Taste: Sweet from the honey, spice, warm alcohol, safron, caramel, and toasted malts.
Mouthfeel: The sweetness seems to make this beer dry. Smooth, medium carbonation, medium to full bodied, and a little booze.
Overall: For being a year old, this beer held up well and tasted good.

I really love this one! It is complex but simple enough to get the major notes of what the beer is going for. I get strong notes of honey and spice which lead into a dry, herbal finish. Its fresh and round with a great balance! I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys drinking chardonnay!
