On tap at FoBAB.

A - A brown beer with a bit of a khaki head that rose up a good finger and dissipated to some pretty decent looking lace.

S - Tannic grapes, sour grapes, lots of grapes, white grapes. At least it is delivering on the name. Some oak, surpringly noticable, caramel/brown sugar malts, and some vinous aromas.

T - Pretty clean tasting beer with the grapes being lighter than the color and smell would suggest and the tannic finish being quite appropriate. It's a beer that can get buried due to the more subtle flavored grapes, making it a nice, lighter sour.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a very dry finish, which was good for this beer.

O - I liked this quite a bit, and while it didn't blow my socks off, it was a pretty good get. Straight forward for what it is, but a beer that a lot of people would appreciate.
