Bottle. Reddish brown beer with a fizzy body. The aroma is deeply fruity and nicely spiced, and the flavour is vinous and spiced with a bitterish finish. Overall a nice rich and vinous beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle enjoyed at the NSSRQSOSLT, 1/10! Thanks to Robert, not sure? Pour was burgundy brown, weak aged head, faint lacing. The aroma was sweet dark fruits, oak, vinous, spices. Flavor featured dark sweet fruits (cherries, plums, dates?), faint oak, vinous elements, some tannins, and some spicing. Other miscellaneous notes of caramel and nuts too? Lot was going on for sure in this one. The wine elements could have been a tad stronger! Enjoyable. The mouthfeel was full, light on carbonation, but not in a detracting way.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy reddish brown with an off-white head.
The aroma is complex with notes of tart fruits, vinous barrel notes, grass and malts.
The flavor is mildly acidic with notes of sweet caramel malts, tart and vinous fruits, oak barrel and hints of vanilla. Overall, very vinous character. Ends dry and "oaky" with a hint of sweet alcohol and some spices.
Medium body and easy on the palate.
Very enjoyable. Elegant composition with an impressive wine barrel character.

Versa color ambra o arancio con una poca schiuma cremosa. Al naso e in bocca è di lievito, arancia, prugne, fichi, alcool, caramello, legno, vino rosso e noci. Entrambi agrodolce in modo equilibrato. Corposa, con un mezzo di carbonatazione bassa. Molto vinosa, maturata e complessa. Adorabile!

Traded bottle from Tyler. Since I traded for this it’s not like I REALLY paid for it...kinda like using a credit card right? Pours a murky brown colour with orange highlights. Very short off-white head that dissolves into a film. Just a little lacing and sheen along the edges. Tart aroma that includes wood, clean alcohol, and sour cherries. The flavour is just amazing. Sour notes, tart notes, dark fruit, a little wine gum, plus some warmth from the 13 ABV. Quick, clean finish. Well done and unique

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Hazy orange/brown, faint head. Rich oaky vinous nose. Sweet and full bodied. Vinous caramelly malt provides a rock solid foundation for the peppery red berries and oaky wine character to dance upon. A full flavoured, intense beer that stays elegant and complex despite it’s weight. Drier finish with peppery warmth.
