COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer sat quietly, aging in our barrel room for over a year before we decided it was time - time to blend in some beautiful ripe red grapes, Brettanomyces, freshly emptied wine barrels and time, this beer is infinitely complex and a challenge to the perception of what beer can be. This beer is re-fermented in the bottle and will age for years to come. Straight from the Captainís cellar to yours, we hope you enjoy.

Deep red color with minimal head. Aroma has fruity and tart notes. Taste isnít as tart as I was expecting but that is not a bad thing. This has a fantastic balance of fruit flavor and tartness. Very enjoyable.

tectactoe (3118) - Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2015
Bottle: Batch 4. Murky, red-tinted & chestnut brown body with a beige foam that quickly settles to a small ring. Aroma of cherry skin, sharp tannin, vinous & slightly boozy wood, moderately musty funk, red grape, some cobweb. Flavor has a nice vinous tartness with lots of grape & vinousness as it warms like a red wine. Faint notes of tobacco, vinegar, under-ripe tart cherry, & a hint of wood. Finishes with a touch of booze. Mild acidity on the way down. Really nice stuff.

Poured a pale rust red color with aromas of cranberry, oak, light raspberries and some sour jam qualities. Flavors match the aromas with some nice sour and tartness solid overall could drink a lot if this.

Pours a rusty crimson color with a finger plus of eggshell foam. Nose is bright, vinous and sharp in a focused way. Raspberry, cranberry, moss, wet wood. Palate follows with nice tannic structure, very vinous, funky pinot noir acidity and a soft fuzzy carbonation ! Delicious.
