Labeled Batch 1, bottled 3/31/16. Clear golden pour with head reducing to fine lacing. Beautiful aromas of white grape, lemon zest, honeysuckle and vinegar. Flavors are a little less developed but still very nice. Light malt backbone highlighted by sweet grape, stone fruits, lemon zest, grass, earth and vinegar. The finish ends with bready malt and drying oak tannins. The sweetness is well balanced by the moderate acidity. Full prickly carbonation. A great beer from Societe. Flavorful, easy drinking and well balanced.

A: Moderately fruity and vinous, light funk, with a lightly sweet malt aroma and light sourness.

A: Golden color, clear, with a moderate white dense head that has adequate retention.

T: Soft malty sweetness with light esters, quickly gives way to vinous notes and a light sourness on the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a soft mouth-feel.

O: Interesting wild character that is well complemented by the vinous and clean sourness.
