This brew is packaged in a thick bomber. The appearance is an amber with pink hues, especially in the head. The aroma is sweetish, with fruit and a little twang. I get citrus, melon, an peach. Interesting. The taste is balanced slightly sweet, and the bitterness in the mid-taste is just firm enough to give some balance. Some funk is there, underneath. Fuller in body than expected, and very good.

Pours a clear, mahogany color. 1/4 inch head of an off-pink color. Decent retention and good lacing. Smells of citrus hops, piney hops, alcohol, slight grape, and Belgian yeast. Fits the style of a Saison / Farmhouse Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong yeast, slight sweet malt, grape, hint of piney hops, slight citrus hops, and spice. Overall, decent appearance, good aroma, blend, and body.

Pours an effervescent pink-hued amber ( bottle lable advertised a straw color ) with pink tinnged, eggshell colored head. Great lacing & head retention. Hazes a bit once warm

S: Grassyness, faint red grape notes, faint yeasty notes once warm

T: Follows the nose, a little of chablis, plus dryness & grapefruit up front, a touch of muscadine as well. Peach, muscadine & oaky dryness as this warms. Finishes with a blend of white & red grape, lus pear & tangerine

MF: Light/medium body, lively carbonation

Drinks so easy, would happily buy this again for a festive ocassion

Poured a clear, reddish color with a small, pinkish head of foam. Subtle cranberry aroma. It has some mild saison flavors with sweet fruity flavor from the cranberries.

Amber to ruby hued with a light sedimentary haze, likely from the grape must. There's a fingernail of off white on top. The aroma is a fantastic blend of red grape must and spicy to earthy Belgian saison yeast. The taste is a bit on the sweet side. The dark red grape must and the earthy to spicy saision yeast are at odds with each other. I'm enjoying this more as it warms. The mouth is light and extremely dry.

Pours pale gold and very clear. 2 finger chalk white head is quite effervescent. Moderate amount of fine lacing. Bubbles continuously rise from the bottom.

Aroma is white grape, straw, cracker-y malt, green apple and pear.

Very white wine like flavor. Grapes and pineapple. Earthy hops, light malt, saltine crackers and straw.

Very mild mouth feel with medium+ carbonation. Crisp and dry on the tongue. Fruity to start with an earthy finish.

Nice easy drinking beer with some notable wine like characteristics. Reminds me of a dry, fruity white wine.
