Blanc de Blancs started as a Biere de Champagne malt bill that was fermented in Chardonnay barrels with Missouri grown Chardonnel grapes. The native Missouri microflora that was present on the grapes provide the sour depth and funky complexity of this wild ale.

0,375l bottle at home. Blend #2. orange murky color, no head. smells of white wine, peach, stone fruits, berry notes, grassy. very nice smell. full body, fizzy carbonation. tastes of white wine, stone fruits, peachy, grassy, bit lactic, spices, peppery, some wood, citric. finishes quite dry and medium sour with lactic notes, grassy and citric notes. good stuff. quite dry, which is a surprise the high abv, very fizzy, nice flavours, but a bit too sour to give this a higher rating. none the less very good.

Decent enough. Hint too acidic and hint lacking in funky complexity...

No head. Hazy, light golden color. Excellent light dry slightly tart nose with nice grape character and a touch of oak. Big oak character, with butterscotch, vanilla and amazing grapenut character. Big tart finish. Excellent

Batch#2 bottle shared at Lucky Bamboo share. Pours a hazy straw with a full 2 fingers of white foam that dissipate. Big muscat and lemon forward nose with wet hay, straw and vinous aromas as it warms. Minerally on the palate with grain, muscat and some floral notes. Tart, vinous character with a grainy, sediment texture. Lingering muscat and pinot gris acidity and mineral notes on the finish. Digging this a lot.
