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.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Served in a Gueuze tumbler:
Gusher. Small lively and quick disappearing off white to light beige foamy head on top of a hazy orange amber colored beer.
Aromas of cellar, brett, some wood, some light vinous tones with grapes, some hay, old flowers and rope. Bit lambic like aroma.
Flavour is like a mix of an Belgian Oud Bruin and a Lambi/Geuze beer: wood, grapes, older hops, herbs, light grainy cheese tint, some light tartness, a sprinkle of brown sugars, herbs, some light sharper citrus ish fruity tunes, dust, brett, some caramel and some malts.
Aftertaste is light tart with wood, some malts, light bitters, sprinkle of brown sugars some nuts and herbs.
Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied and a light watery texture.
Bit like a Lambic, also tones of a Belgian Oud Bruin, but not as powerfull as those two styles, but not even close to bad! Nice and easy drinkable!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Over-eager to get out of the bottle, the head died down somewhat after a dramatic start. Hazy, red copper colour with some sediment. Intense vinous aroma, quite a bit of woody notes, sour fruit. A lot of berry flavours, strawberries, hints of vanilla, sour fruit, an dry wood, especially towards the finish. Great stuff.
