This beer sat quietly, aging in our barrel room for over a year before we decided it was time - time to blend in some beautiful ripe red grapes, Brettanomyces, freshly emptied wine barrels and time, this beer is infinitely complex and a challenge to the perception of what beer can be. This beer is re-fermented in the bottle and will age for years to come. Straight from the Captain’s cellar to yours, we hope you enjoy.

One of the best beers I have had in a very long time. The thing dances on the tongue with perfect sourness mixed so well with the grapes and oak....extremely complex. Utterly delicous. Maybe perfect. Need another bottle to confirm.

burg326 (4229) - Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Poured a pale rust red color with aromas of cranberry, oak, light raspberries and some sour jam qualities. Flavors match the aromas with some nice sour and tartness solid overall could drink a lot if this.

Lukaduke (2469) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Pours a rusty crimson color with a finger plus of eggshell foam. Nose is bright, vinous and sharp in a focused way. Raspberry, cranberry, moss, wet wood. Palate follows with nice tannic structure, very vinous, funky pinot noir acidity and a soft fuzzy carbonation ! Delicious.

Stine (1642) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Lovely rose-hued, hazed pour with a clinging ring of pink-tinted white. Gravel, balsamic vinegar, sherry and cheese rind in the nose; funky and angular, with expansive depth. Dry chocolate introduces another level; sweat sock like mold and cheese notes detract. The flavor often sings with gorgeously layered fruit; blood orange, cranberry, and red grape are enveloped in elegant spicing and quiet density. The palate, warm and gently acidic, offers tenacity knowingly restrained; acid level is firm at the finish, with a kinder softness about it. Pleasant, detailed and calmer sour overall.

Got this through ufck BIF. Pours deep ruby red with a small wisp of beige. Aroma is tart cherry and oak. Taste is very tarte, some wet blanket, cherry and grape. More puckerish than Rodenbach. Quite nice sipper.
