4.09/5 rDev +6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
10 oz. pour into a snifter glass at the Falls Church Alehouse; unknown brewing/kegging date; drank over 30 minutes
A: 3/3 - pale yellow-to-golden coloration; crystal clear (can both read and see through); received with an initial frothy white head that settled into a subtle glass lacing; no visible bubbles
S: 10/12 - predominately white wine/Chardonnay notes; some background Belgian yeast, pils and wheat with some alcohol
T: 16/20 - bright, refreshing vinous flavors immediately hit on first sip and continue to develop on the palate; as the flavor profile expands; the Belgian pils and yeast rear up - slightly peppery, estery and coriander; some alcohol but doesn't taste like 9% ABV; finishes dry and invites subsequent sips
M: 3/5 - much lower carbonation for style (and major reason for point detraction); light body
O: 8/10 - nice admixture of vinous and saison qualities; it's not as good as I remember it being, which, unfortunately, is my typical DFH experience as my palate has developed, but it remains an enjoyable Spring/Summer offering and is dangerously drinkable; $10.50/10 oz. snifter is craziness though
TOTAL - 40/50
Serving type: on-tap

3.86/5 rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a thick white head, good size bubbles, and lacing that sticks to the side of the glass forever.
Smell: A champagne and sweet white wine scent, with a hint of lemon.
Taste: A sour white wine taste with a bit of bitterness to it.
Mouthfeel: Nicely carbonated, smooth, but a bit sour.
Drinkability: Has a little too much sour/bitter for my liking, but not bad.

3.7/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
A: Pale straw, champagne-like head that leaves no residue on surface or glass. Aggressive carbonation, slight fogginess. Looks crisp, but so darn light/flavorless.
S: White grapes, slight yeast/bread.
T: Closer to wine than beer. Apples, pear, off-dry, background yeast/bread. Acidity brings a nice crispness. For the delicacy of the flavors the high ABV is hidden well.
M: Super carbonated, full bodied but still quick-flowing.
O: It's good, a cool concept executed very well. Would be a great crossover drink for either wine or beer diehards.
