Firestone Walker Bretta Blanc
What the brewers say
"Fermented with white-wine grapes from David Walker’s family vineyard, aged in French oak barrels."
What our panel thought
"Musty and moderately funky. Grape character is moderately sweet, light, and bright. Oak character dances beneath, bringing just enough vanilla and tannic quality to add a nice complexity. The synthesis of the grape and base sour beer is a winner."
What our editors thought
"White-wine grape on the nose mashes up earthy, expressive, sweet, and confident. The sip is bright with a burst of acid and sweetness that settles down into lingering cantaloupe and honeydew."
