4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted in early 2012 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle shared by Curtis. Pours a red wine/tint of amber with an average tan head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is dusty tart and sour red fruit, lemon peel, caramel malt, and a touch of chocolate. The flavor is very tart and lemon sour with red berries, bread malt, some caramel...overall very vinous. The body is medium and tannic with average carbonation and a long sour vinous finish.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rating #2201 - 2015.12.01 - #CraftBeerFantasyLeague Battle: Barrel-Aged Beauties - This finished 2nd of 9 entries. Bottle (2012). Pours a deep reddish brown with a bubbly head that disapparates rather quickly. Aroma is berries, wild cherries, sour plum tartness - rich, fruity texture. Palate is well balanced - lots of tart cherry, sweetness from the barrel component, some woody oak components, some vineous Cab notes, and a leathery bitter funk note - lovely sour/bruin.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2016
Heavy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, grapes, berries, wine and acidity.
Turbid/opaque red/brown beer with a medium beige/brown head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, wood, grapes and berries; ends medium dry and sour with wine and acidity.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The red ale with added grapes and aged in oak, the red ale aged in port and the red ale aged in pinot noir are perfect together. The wine flavour these three ales create is simply superb and unbeatable.

Wonderful beer, really great. The perfect sourness, never artificial. The other flavors of the barrels get through after a while as well. Perfection.
