3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden in color, slight haze with a thin head. There is a slight wine barrel aroma. Lots of spice and light malt flavors. The beer sets up well as a light fruity/floral beer. The wine (Chardonnay) gives off a dry tartness in the finish.

Live from the barrel at the Portland location - Sweet winey perfume. Great and interesting nose. Sherry-like. A little weak in the mouth.

On tap at Cascade Barrel House. Pours cloudy golden with an attractive off-white head and a sour fruity aroma. There is a slightly thin sourish pale malt flavor that sticks to the palate. I expected it to derive a more of a tartness from the grape skins, but it does leaves an impression of sour on the palate.
