A - Light golden apple juice color with no head

S - Smells like a sweet Chardonnay as it is dry, oaky and slightly buttery

T - Dry Chardonnay, green grapes, oak, dry white wine finish to it. Slight alcohol burn.

M - light carbonation and thick beer with a dry finish. Essentially white wine

O - This is essentially Chardonnay as it reminds me of a dry white wine with apple, oak and dry, slight alcohol

bottle pour @ Euclid Hall, #4 in the barrel aged bike ride

A beer very similar to Cascade the Vine in my opinion - light, clear body, active carbonation and a nice head. Full blown chardonnay throughout, champagne yeast, grassy, green grape, sour apple. I have no idea how this was 11% - dug it, but I am giddy for champagne barrel aged beers
