500ml bottle poured into an Idle Hands tulip.

L - Pours a pale, straw golden color with just a hint of orange. A finger of fluffy white head shows excellent staying power as an endless stream of bubbles rises through the glass.

S - Very fruity up front, lots of grapes as would be expected. Funky brett is right behind the fruit giving some wet hay and mild barnyard aromas. Some sugary sweetness lurks in the background. Light phenolics round things out.

T - Grapey, white winey in character. Plenty of earthy, yeasty funk, some apples, light phenols, grainy malt, a bit spicy.

F - Lightish medium body, frothy/foamy light/middle carbonation that fits well. A lot of winey and funky character throughout, ending in a spicy - almost cinnamon aspect on the exhale. Acidic, faintly tart but definitely not sour...again fairly white wine-like.

O - Another interesting beer from Wicked far I have liked pretty much everything I have tried from them and this one is no different. I am a bit surprised how much I like this beer however. Definitely exceeded my expectations.

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.
