DiarmaidBHK (4151) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Draft at fireworks leesburg. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves a fair amount of lacing in the glass. There's a lot of the red wine barrel influence on the nose and tongue. A bit of tartness on the tongue as well but not as pronounced as the wine. Finished clean. Solid but not spectacular. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
