750 ml bottle capped and corked from Tipples. Bottles November 23, 2012 and poured May 25, 2014. Pours hazy golden with a half finger fizzy white head that dissipates almost immediately. Super musty dusty aroma, oak, funk, huge acidity, apricots, grape skins, a bit of vinegar, tart and sour smelling, very light vinous notes. Flavor is intensely acidic and sour, some floral notes on the tongue, citrus zest all the way through, dry oaky finish, and some lingering vinous warm left in the throat. Mouth puckering like whoah. As this warms it mellows a bit and the white wine notes become more present. Spritzy and prickly carbonation--lots of it--and light on the palate without sacrificing bold flavor. Super dry. Extremely clean and crisp. Good stuff.

Pours a slightly hazy golden straw with half an inch of bubbly white head that fades quickly into some wisps and a medium collar. Aroma is dry oakiness, white wine-like and a good earthiness. Taste is tart grapes, some vanilla and oak. High carbonation and low-medium body. Very tart overall and the grape plays a decent second string.

This ale pours light golden with no appreciable head. High viscosity but little carb. The nose takes a minute to open. Once it does raw oak with some floral notes come through and it's rounded off with sour grapes. The sour level is fairly high. Great flavors of oak, sour yeast, bread, and grain. The fruits do not dominant in the nose or palate. Low carbonation, very smooth, super clean.

This does not disappoint. I would go to extents to have this again. Very good. Worth the price and hassel.
