3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy reddish brown with a tan head with pink hues. Head is smallish and recedes to a thin cap with spotty lacing.
Aroma is very much like a red wine with plen Cabernet characteristics, but with some sweet sugary notes mixed in. Definitely some oak as well. Nt much Brett that I detect.
More red wine up front in the taste with some sugar and yeast underneath. The finish is dry and earthy with a heavy red wine slant. Brett makes an appearance but is not as prominent as the wine.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Having just had the last barrel series, this one doesn’t quite stack up to the Muscat D’Amour, but it’s not bad. Definitely for the red wine lover.

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.
