podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Draft at Gingerman. Pours a glowing orangey amber with a great looking offwhite, thick, foamy head. Really nice looking beer. Aroma of fruity grapes, bubblegum and yeast. Taste is slightly boozy, very vinous, yeasty, musty, spicy with notes of caramel, malt and sweet fruit. Long boozy finish, almost sherry-like. I found this a little too boozy and vinous and those aspects kept increasing as I drank the beer, which decreased my enjoyment of it.

Lightly sweet and tart flavor flavor with definite grape/wine, a bit of mustiness, tartness, Belgian yeast, a touch of malt, and lingering maltiness.

annunz123 (880) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Aroma is candy, fruit, and sour funk. Taste is sweet with bread, caramel, fruit, and spice. More spice, a little sour, and a fair amount of alcohol in the finish. Not the best Belgian-style ale out there, but certainly a good effort.
