Cloudy blond color with large head. The aroma is spicy, but also lightly floral and vegetable; and with delicate wine barrel presence. The mouthfeel is off-dry, but smooth; nice spicy yeast character, with an interesting zesty note, and then the red wine, with light fruitiness; the tannins are soft, they contribute with the yeast to the dirty feeling in the final.
Very good beer, well constructed and harmonious, although the final is less elegant. But the price is insane.

Gerbeer (3080) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours amber with light head. Aromas of Belgian yeast, oak, peach skin, and toasted malts. Fruity flavors (peaches, grapes and bananas), with big yeasty notes cut nicely by the oaky wood. Very tasty. Great stuff.

DuffMan (9472) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle, shared with my wife. Very hazy yellow body with a lively lacy white head. I know this says it was aged in red wine barrels, but I’m getting a juicy fresh green grape character up front, then some chamomile and light funk, ending with a summery grassy note. Finish is tart. This was a complete surprise! Absolutely awesome, so drinkable and with such depth-- we both loved this beer.

danielyabu (1524) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - FEB 16, 2014
average frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. sparkling flat thick dark yellow body. aroma: white grape, apple, white wine, little vinegar. if: moderate sweet. ff: light sweet moderate acidic; long duration. palate: medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, light astringent finish. Dulçor de maçã, colonial, dentro dos ditames do estilo. Ligeiro aquecimento alcoólico. O sabor lembra mais vinho branco que vinho tinto, onde foi armazenada, menos no final, quando há um retrogosto ácido que traz leve lembrança de um cabernet. Bem mais acida que outras do estilo, trazendo certo azedume que lembra gueuze, mas em bem menor escala. 150 s

Idiosynkrasie (6296) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2014
330ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour with average to huge, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Excellent, complex aroma, floral, yeasty, fruity, zesty, malty, oaky, minimally vinous; somehow hints of sugar powder, biscuit dough. Taste is dry vinous and minimally tart on a moderately sweet malty basis, again biscuity doughy, zesty, floral, fruity, oaky; soft palate, oily and minimally "crumbly" texture. Unbelievable beer, absolutely outstanding, superbly balanced, mild, though rich and complex.
