jkwood04 (3803) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Sampled at the brewery. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of grapes, spicy yeast, light malts, hints of tartness, and light grains and doughiness. Flavor the same with a lot of grapes. Average texture. Cool but a little too wine-like for me.

mansquito (3297) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Washington Commons, Brooklyn tap ($11): Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is wood, red wine, citrus, yeast, and some spice. I found that the woody taste was very unique to this beer. Furthermore, the grapes were really quite pronounced. Unlike other raters, I did not find this beer to be too sweet, but rather a nice balance. In fact, I drank it quite rapidly because I found it to be rather quaffable.

Metallic copper pour with little or no head. Syrup sweetness with wine topped off with hops. Not too hoppy though. Close to a Belgian style triple. Has a slight aftertaste but otherwise a notable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
