4.55/5 rDev +2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Temptation pours a clear champagne-like white grape color with about 1.5 fingers of pure white head. Retention and lacing are quite nice. Also, this beer is quite effervescent; lots of carbonation rising to the top. Very nice.
Smell: I get funk, mustiness, white grapes and subtle vinuous oak. Not overpowering, but still nice.
Taste: I get tartness and mustiness up front, along with some white grape skin. I also get faint oaky notes, and can taste a hint of the chardonnay that occupied the barrels beforehand. Lightly acidic, but not over the top. In terms of sourness not real intense, but overall funk and flavor is very good indeed.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Just a little under medium bodied with great carbonation. Awesome mouthfeel. Overall, a superior wild ale. It's not overly sour but has a nice balance of flavors to it that isn't over the top.
Serving type: bottle
