Bottle @ home. Rosé colored beer with a thin white head. Nice peach, berry, and lemon zest on the nose. A bit of oak and musty wine. Nice oak, too. The flavor is pleasantly tangy. Good stone fruit, musty grape, red grape skin, and slight pepper. Maybe a hint of chalk, lemon zest, and sour stone fruits. Nice stuff.

Tasted on 11/16/13 from a capped 12oz bottle at our Avery Barrel-Aged tasting. Pours clear bright auburn with some thin off-white lace. The nose is quite funky, some light sourness, very vinous and plenty of oak. The flavor is really dominated by Cabernet Franc with a lot of funk, and nice sourness. The body is full, very tannic, with average carbonation and a long Cab Franc and funky finish.

White wine smell. White wine and sour taste which is pleasing, but also somewhat plain.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy dark amber orange with a tiny, quickly vanishing head. Nose is very funky, full of wild yeasts, grape must, red wine, and oaky. Flavour is extremely complex, with brett funk, red wine, and loads of zesty grape must. Very dry, moderately funky and very oaky and vinous. Finishes a little citric and vinegary, with medium sharp sourness. Great beer, just perhaps a bit too acetic on the finish.

12oz bottle, thanks Aaron! Pours a pinkish-amber color with a think white head that quickly fades. Aroma is oaky, a little bread, some funk. Medium on the palate with light, soft carbonation. Flavor is tart, dry, red wine, some oak, some yeasty funk, a little nutty, with a light, tart, red wine finish. Nice.

Bottle thanks to Tom. Pours a clear orange pink with small off white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is grape, wine, oak. Thin mouthfeel with strong wine flavor and grape with light sour finish. Wow really impressive.
