Poured from a 500 mL bottle. The body was bright gold and clear. The head was white and modest.

The smell was Sweet-Tart candies, pears and grape skins.

The taste was vineous. Grape must. There was a nice tart snap with a decided grapiness. Well masked alcohol. There was a drying, woody finish. Reminded me of a a Reisling.

The body was medium in density and carbonation. Very nice overall.

A: pours a slightly hazy gold with half a finger of white head that fades into a bubbly ring with little lacing.

S: sour fruits and funky barnyard dominate the nose with an underlying sweet breadiness. The finish is musty.

T: tart and sligbtly sour fruits throughout this beer with some funk and musty barnyard flavors. There are some slight citrus and candy sugar flavors before a tart finish with a livht alcohol warmth.

M: medium body with lowish carbonation, this beer is drinkable and nust avoids being watery.

O: a delicious beer. There is a lot going on and it works well together.

Bottle shared by Will yesterday.

Pours a golden yellowish orange, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like Brett yeastiness, grapes, and wine.

This really doesn't come off like a strong ale at all, the alcohol is not noticeable, which is cool. There's a lot of grape flavor, very wine-like. It's mildly sour, more funky than anything, with a bit of a mild butter flavor that apparently runs through a lot of Wicked Weed beers. It's slightly off-putting, but not very strong, luckily.

This is medium bodied, with no evidence of the ABV. It's pretty drinkable.

This is interesting. It's not amazing, but it's pretty well done.
