ineedbeer (1162) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Aroma is nice and acidic with some grape must and light oak tannins. Moderate citrus and tropical fruit notes. Not as much barnyard funk as needed. Pours a cloudy, reddish color with a small, tan head. Flavor is fairly acidic with nice grape tannins and must. Moderate citrus notes and some tropical fruit. Light oak tannins and earthy funk. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a really nice beer but its no Malvasio Rossa. Similar to Le Roar Grrrz Druiven in that its lacking the really nice funk, but it has good acidity and fruit notes.
