Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Confession is a true collaborative effort between the wine and beer world. A variation of our sour blonde ale, brewed in part by Fess Parker Winery, was blended and fermented with juice pressed from Parker's Riesling grapes, harvested in part by The Bruery team. The result is remarkable. Not quite beer, not quite wine. Fragrant fruit flavors warm the nose, infiltrated by a slight funk from the wild yeast. The first sip is reminiscent of a dry, white wine, but everything changes upon further examination as the flavors marinate and reveal themselves with each gulp.

Bottle from who knows where...split it with the wife. Very white wine...LOTS of prickly carbonation. Almost like a spritzer. Somewhat dry with a subtle tart uptick on the finish. If you were to make a white wine beer, this would be it.

Looks like white wine in the glass.

Nose and taste are apple skin, apple juice, white pepper, lime, and tonic water. Hints of pineapple and honey. Crisp, with nice minerality on the finish. Equal parts white wine and wild ale. Dries out a good deal on the backend. Booze is completely concealed. Sourness is a 3/10. Mild. Some band-aid/rubber on the nose.

Overall, really good. If you like tart white wine this "beer" will do it for you. 9+/10

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip to a clear straw yellow topped by a finger of dense white head that retains quickly leaving minimal lacing
S: Smells of grape must, funk, and sourness
T: Taste is bright acidity followed up with some white wine notes and some hints of melon. Sourness keeps coming back but some funk does shine through as well. Hints of buttery oak also. Swallow is a nice blast of sourness followed by some more white wine notes and oak with some lingering acidity
M: This beer has a moderate amount of body with a slightly slick mouthfeel. Carbonation on this beer is very effervescent but keeps away from being prickly. The finish on this beer is quite drying as well
O: Overall this is an interesting beer. It blends a lot of features between a pale sour and a reisling. Definitely different and I kind of like it. I can see that this may be a little polarizing though.

Clear-ish straw yellow with relatively no head aside from a faint ring.

I get buttery oak in aroma, almost smelling like a mead, with apple and white grape adding to flavor. Feel is a little slick and heavy like a mead as well.

Good to know we still have that duplication problem, and ThatsThatDude is still contributing to this mess, helping to inflate this to a full on quadruplicate entry here on BA.
