Poured into a large goblet last night at Bittercreek’s 2014 Funkfest... A hazy reddish/brown brew produces decent head and spotty lacing. Nose is weird... candy like sweetness punctuated by a musty/lightly funky bretty character.. Flavor has a big oaky essence that is punctuated by a tannic element... this one is for the geeks, I am not sure what to make of it... not really anything that I commonly associate strictly with grapes, but there is an overall round very background sweetness that I guess is grape. Weird ... very weird ... tasty, but certainly is not going to be everybody’s favorite.

Birra dall’acidità morbida e ben bilanciate, gusto astringente arricchito da note fruttate, di bacche, una sfumatura citrica e un tocco vinoso acetico. Il risultato è davvero eccezionale. Birra indimenticabile.
