On tap at churchville inn. 5oz.

Look: thick-ish apple juice, no head.

AROMA: lots of deciduous fruit, apple, pear, grape. Mild yeast, sweet smelling.

TASTE: sweet and sour grape, oak gives it almost a chardonnay type of taste but not so much that you feel like a house bitch of orange county.

FEEL: sharpness makes up for lack of carbonation...gives it a dry bite.

Interesting, but not my cup of tea.

Bottle shared by Liam.

Hazy golden orange colour, ring of white head with some lace as well. Smell is really funky, lemon, some sweet candy kind of like Sweet Tarts actually, lots of acidity, I get very little in the way of grape however perhaps a bit of grape skins. Taste is quite funky and tart, really quite sour, big acidity, lemony with more noteable grape on the palate than in the nose, funky and yeasty finish. Mediunm carbonation with a big dry sourness, medium bodied as well. This was quite good but a little more grape flavour would be apreciated here, alcohol very well hidden though.
