Brewer Description: (from website) A blend of foeder and chardonnay barrel aged sours different vintages grand master is a delightfully complex yet very drinkable sour. Initial lemony brightness with hints orange blossom gives way to fuller texture from ageing coconut vanilla notes coating the palate. Its balanced acidity gradually becomes more apparent light acetic bite adding complexity. Its vinuous throughout has satisfying medium dry finish. Happy 40th birthday, Grand Master (Rohit)!
