A murky beer with a rose colour. Aroma os fresh and with intense, dirty and musty notes. Otherwise the fruity notes from the grapes. The taste is very fruitful with heaps of grapes - the merlot really shows through! It ends sour and cleansing. Great beer!

tlind2 (1535) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2008
330 ml bottle. Pours a beautiful ruby red color, much like a pinot noir aside from the off-white head. Sour fruity aroma. The taste follows the aroma, with some aromatics reminscent of white wine. Different and good.

Smells of two week old ribena... that’s been in the sun... rubbish. Might be 30% and capable of flooring you in a pint... i don’t care... beer should not be made of grapes... end of. - Emily (self confessed non-beer aficionado... sorry.)

Bottle, 2005 vintage. Clear reddish brown/pink with a little white head. Vinous aromas with notes of flowers, fruit and some mushrooms. Flavours of sour fruit, raspberries and oak.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Stunning luminous plum skin red, abundant fine pink head. That’s pretty! Dry wooly cinnamon, candied apples, salty dessert-island driftwood. Restrained mineral sourness with elements of green apples, raspberries and grapeskin. Refreshingly delicate but with a nice fullness. Beautiful.

badgerben (4806) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2008
2003 Vintage. Tasted September 7, 2008. Dark, murky red color with no head. Aroma of grape vines. Strong sour and tart wheat flavor. Very little grape flavor, but a lot of what I would call leafy or vine-like flavors. It seems that instead of the grapes imparting their flavors, it was aged with the vines stalks. Still good, but not the ’wow’ I was hoping for.

Oh what a stunning beer. If I could give a perfect score for any of the categories (I am anal about that and have never done it), aroma and flavor would be 10 and 10 respectively. Aroma was perfect. Strong funk, mold and barnyard fill the nose. Smells like it’s been buried for 100 years in a dirty wet dusty blanket. Pour was a beautiful dark red/purple with no head. Taste was extremely sour and funky. Heavy sour grape with an acidic mouth puckering aftettaste. Dries the mouth and cheeks. Little carbonation that disappears mid drink. Near perfect.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Ruby red body and a whispy white head. A strong funky aroma hits right up front, kind of horsey, like a barnyard, and a nice sour fruit note comes through. The flavor is sweet and tart, plenty of delicious fruit presence, a bit of bitter funk, like cheese rind, comes through toward the finish.

Bottle 75cl.
Light unclear medium red color with a virtually none appearance, virtually none lancing, head. Aroma is grape sour - acidic, vinous, tart. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and acidic with a long duration, and a dry tart finish. Body is medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat. ;o)) (250508)

750 courtesy of Josh from Vintage Estates. Pours purple/red with no head. Nose is sour grape with a citrusy hint, slight oak. Taste is an abundance of sour grapes, citrus, and lots more grape. Dry and sour. Did I mention that it’s slightly tart? Also some slight, bright cherry notes, also some slight bready yeast and sourdough undertones as it warms. Very nice beer. Tasty. Glad to have tried it. Thanks, Josh.
