ineedbeer (1819) - Oakland, California, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is fairly wire-like and vinous. Lots of grape notes with some moderate tannins. Some medium light oak notes with a red wine character. Some acidity with hints of citrus. Pours a murky, red color with an orange hue and a medium sized, fairly thin, slightly pink head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges and disappears. No lacing or legs. Flavor is also very grape and wine forward with a moderately strong acidity. Some light citrus notes. Moderate grape notes with some tannins from the skins. Light oak notes with a red wine character. Faint phenolic note. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a decent wine-like sour with a lot of grapefruit and barrel character. The acidity was a touch strong and sharp, but overall very nice.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle @ Mike’s House. Thanks, Mike. Ruby colored beer with a tall but short lived pink head. Very acidic, not surprisingly. A lot of berry, cherry, and grape. Some balsamic and red wine vinegar. Tannic fruit skins and grape. Some oak, grass, and a light musty, blue cheese funk. A little bit of a cherry candy. Just an overwhelming lemon juice note to the finish. A little bit much.
