Pours interesting purple hue with no head. Very tannic grape character and very dry. Musty funk on it as well. Not much sourness but plenty going on with the wine grapes.

White wine and mellow cherry aroma. Malty base with plum grape and vanilla. Finish is good and sour with a definate winery character. Fantastic multi dimensional brew

Batch 1. Deep winey red pour with a small white head. The aroma has some huge oak and tannin notes that you get with big-bodied red wines. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of red wine character as well as some tannic oak and a medium amount of acidity. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This is one of the most wine-like beers I have tried. Good stuff.

baraciisch (2025) - California, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Dark vinous red in color, minimal carbonation, looks like a Pinot noir at first glance... Aroma of Tempranillo grapes, light tartness, citrus... Flavor is a nice melange of red wine and lightly sour blonde... Vinous finish... Enjoyed it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
