craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Draft at Churchkey. Nose holds big concord grape jelly, a touch of raspberry, and good tart dark cherry presence. The flavor adds more fruit like currant, red grape, and some vinous notes. Light and palatable. Decent.

radagast83 (6334) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Churchkey’s menu says "Sour Ale Aged in French Burgundy Wine Barrels w/ Dutch Blue Boskoop Glory Grapes" - so I’m assuming this is it. Poured a brown color with a small tan head. Aroma was sour grape notes, yeasty funk, touch of berry I’d guess. Pretty enjoyable.

brokensail (14558) - San Leandro, California, USA - SEP 12, 2011
A: The beer pours a murky reddish amber color with a very small off-white head. S: You can definitely smell the grapes on this one. There are also some light raspberry notes to it. A decent amount of wood as well as some lemon juice and zest. Overall, sort of a simple aroma. T: A light oak flavor along with some decent tartness, mostly in the form of lemon. A fair amount of grape flavor as well as just a mild vinegar sourness. A little sweetness of grape juice on the back end. M: Medium in body with low to medium carbonation. O: This was just an okay beer. It didn’t offend in anyway, but I wouldn’t order it again.

Bottle at Het Oude Schooltje, thanks to Dale. It pours hazy dark red-brown, with a thick off-white head. The nose is sour Granny Smith apple, tart lemon, wild strawberry and bret. yeast. The taste is juicy tart cherry, strawberry, raspberry, red grape, Granny Smith apple, farmyard and wood with a long tart finish. Not overly complex, but very drinkable stuff.
