4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is a peach. No matter the price, grab one immediately. Red wine body with medium carbonation gives rise two a bubbly off white head. Nose of red berries and aged wood gives you a heads up for what’s in store. A lovely balanced flavor of sour and sweet comes from hints of cherries, raspberries, grapes, yeasty notes and a hefty backbone of a lovely wood taste. Simply delicious.

Bottle. Pours thick dark murky amber with very nice beige head. Aroma is oaky, wood and red wine. Slight tart fruits and funky yeast. Dry red wine. Taste is sweet and tart. Grapes and lot of vanilla too. Big, fizzy and lively body. Finish is dry wooden and some heat, but not alcoholic at all. Tartness stays in the mouth.
