3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a dark mahogany with a small beige head. Nose brings out wild yeasts, red wine, dry earthy grape skins and booze. Flavour brings out loads of dry red grapes and loads of red wine, some lacto and other wild yeast. Very dry, grapey and vinous. Finishes vinous and slightly boozy. Not the most complex of the series, but nice stuff nonetheless.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ruby red with a white head. The aroma is quite striking with a lot of cherry and brown sugar notes. The flavor is fairly complex. I get some nice oaked character, as well as some cherries and grapes. There is also some light tartness and a bit of funk. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
April 20, 2013 - bottle via trade. Brownish purple pour with nice head that faded quickly. Aroma was malt, yeast, wood, mild sourness and fruit. Taste began sweet malty with some nice wood in the background that continued throughout, then moved into the fruit with a touch of sourness and a mild dry alcohol finish. As expected this took on characteristics of a red wine and that was a good thing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle, thanks Aaron. Pours a dark, reddish-brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is oak, fruity, red wine. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is lightly sour, nutty, caramel, some red wine, some oak, with a light oaky finish. Good, but I like Muscat d’Amour better.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Murky orange-red-brown body with tons of sediment, thin off-white head. Funky nose of wet socks, vinaigrette, white grape and grapeskin; vinous. Oaky body with vinous elements, some sulfuric funk too, masking toasty, caramely notes. Not bad, but jumbled.
