Draft: Poured a dirty hazy beige color ale with a small foamy head with minimal retention and some lacing. Aroma of sweet wheat malt with weird grapes notes. Taste is quite intense with loads of grapes notes with weird funky ester and a sweet wheat malt base. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Interesting experiment but there need to be some kind of attenuation for this to be more then a sipper.

A- Head was only a crown right from the get go. Completely flat in about a minute. Underneath, a dirty but pale, reddish gold. Very light in colour but still close to opaque.

S- not sure how to put this ; ordinary weizen smell with an added jolly rancher sweetness. Doesn't smell bad but doesn't smell like much either. Its all kind of shy.

T- Seems like a nice drinker at first. Very earthy woodiness right from the start. Like a wet branch from the forest floor, lichen and all... But kind of tasty. Some sour funk reminding me of an American wild ale and a hint of day old room temperature milk. As it warmed up, I got more grape and as it warmed up even more i think i could make out it was white grape.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Low but sufficient (barely) carbonation. Not dry but astringent. Kind of a boring mouthfeel but it doesn't really ruin the experience.

D- Good but not much more. A good drink but not one you go to the bar looking for. Interesting taste but not really refreshing considering how light it is.

I'll order it again but cant really suggest it unless youre looking for something different/weird.
