Ibrew2or3 (6843) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Tasted at the big “SeaBass has got to go” tasting courtesy of fogdog. Pours murky deep copper with thin white head. The aroma is tart and berry like along with some sour and tart crushed aspirin. The taste is thin on the palate and pulls up notes of berry tartness or maybe cranberry along with tart and drying and almost chalky tart crushed aspirin.

brokensail (10781) - 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.

craftycarl21 (2220) - Washington, Washington DC, 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.

Palme (3302) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
0.75l bottle. A cloudy dark red one with a small sidesticking beige top. Smells quite nice, fruity sweet red berries, a slight red wine vinegar hint with lots of wood and some lemon zest. It gives a zing in the mouth alright. Red berries and wood. More of that vinegar, but more a apply version. Oily mouthfeel with a below average carbonation level. Refreshing, lots of red berries. Lots of white currants. Acidity fresh! 20.01.2013

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2009
[2412-20090801] Bottle. Barrel-on-the-floor aroma also suggests fruit and beans. Hazy, dark tan orange body with a quick foamy off-white head. Sweet fruity malt flavour has a long wood barrel aftertaste. Medium-full body. Average, didn’t really capture my interest.
