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 (9944) - Orange County, 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.
