Special thanks to Davehack for sharing his personal White Whale with me a couple other friends. The beer poured out as a hazy yellow color with a white head on top. The smell of the beer is bright with some yeasty notes and white wine grape as well. The taste gives off a bit of tartness, sort of champagne-like in a way. The feel is lighter bodied and finished dry. Overall it was a nice experience having this beer because I'm pretty sure I'll never have it again.

Big thanks to whoever shared this bottle at Zwanze Day; was very cool to see this opened. 1996 vintage, poured into a taster.

a - Pours a golden-orange color with one inch of off white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of old bread, biscuit malts, grapes, lemon, spice, light oak and funk, earthy notes, and some hay. Lightly funky which is nice and lightly tart.

t - Tastes of bready, grapes, wine, lemon, citrus, hay, earthy notes, funk, oak, nuts, dough, biscuit malts, and some light mustiness. Nice but kind of old-tasting.

m - Light body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall this was very cool to try, but seemed past its prime to me. It wasn't very funky or sour and was a bit old/musty; would love to get a newer bottled and try it again. Probably wouldn't seek out the 1996 version.

I have been searching for this bottle for quite sometime and I give many thanks to billyshears for hooking me up with one.

2011 Vintage poured into my Southampton snifter

A: Poured light golden color with about a two finger head that receded into a thick film around the walls of the glass.

S: Musty funk, white grapes and citrus all play into the beers pleasantly tart aroma.

T: Wow. Super juicy citrus character that is cut by the acidity from the grapes. By the middle of the mouth subtle spice character begin to surface. Excellent dry finish out the back.

M: medium carbonation pricks the tounge. The body of the beer is on the lighter side.

O: Seeking this out was worth every ounce of effort that I put in. Definitely my favorite beer that I have tried from the Publick House next to the Black Raspberry Lambic. Now I just need to find some Hommage.
