What ya drinkin’ part XXII

I had that in 2012.

Purchased from the brewery for $17.00.

A loud pop when I removed the cork, it pours a clear and very bubbly light gold with a 1 finger head of foam with lots of lacing.

It smells funky, tart, yeasty and has some notes of grapes.

The taste has some rather big sour grape flavour to it followed by mild notes of funk, a wee bit of fruity sweetness, more grape sourness, and woody notes from the oak aging. The alcohol gives me a lot of warming after the swallow but I can’t say it shows up much in the taste.

Medium body, lively carbonation, good mouthfeel overall. This is good and for lovers of grape in their American Wilds…it’s probably better than just good. Me? I’m not a huge fan of grapes but I’m not sorry I gave this a go. Being a Cascade beer…

It has remaining carbonation, but a lot must have seeped past the cork. Very grapey. White grapes I think. The sour is not mouth destructive. Aged nicely.

Ok, it has nothing much to do with drinking, but it’s a hoot to watch while drinking.
