Pours a slightly hazy yellow with an off white head. Aromas and flavors are of oaky wine barrels, stone fruits, tart funk, and wine grapes. An excellent sour.

On tap at the brewery. White head. Yellow color.

Sour and tart with the reisling coming through. A bit acidic, but mainly white wine like. Tannins and oak. Green apple skins. Melons.

A very nice sour.

Solid grape forward sour, brightly tart and subtle stone fruit mid palate. bone dry/tannic finish. Mild funk and one note...but damn its tasty. Great collaboration

A really great hybrid wine/beer. Bright acid, dry oak and tannins on the back end. Aroma is clean with hints of honeysuckle and peach.
