37,5 cl bottle @ wPBF’13, BBE 23.04.2018
Aroma has yeasty notes, malt, currants and spices. Flavour is tart with raisins, strong spicy notes and lots of currant juice. Actually this is nothing more than just a currant juice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Opaque mahogany pour with a foamy, rocky tan head. Aroma is rather funky and tart with wine notes, damp wood, tart berries and funky yeast. Taste is tart raspberry up front, slightly sour fruits as well with the wine kicking in mid gulp and both combining on the back end with light caramel, dusty yeast, wet wood, chocolate covered berries and dark fruit notes. Body is light-medium and rather lively with the carbonation. Finishes with more tart raspberries, wine notes, wet wood, soft yeast, light earthiness, dark fruit and caramel. Nice beer!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2nd September 2012
Opaque dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Light raspberry nose. Palate is light, airy and dry. A touch of that emulsion paint vibe that sometimes comes over in BA beers. Semi tart and natural tasting raspberry. Underneath is a wine tang and mellow wine flavours. Finishes semi dry. Almost a very god beer but that paint note is annoying.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Darky murky black, brown/red, medium head. Smells.. Loads of raspberries, maybe some plum, some oak/white vinous bits. Tastes.. Immediately berries, then plums or darker fruits. Slightly tart.. moves into oaky white barrel flavours and then caramel against some red wine tannin finish. Not everyone’s thing, but I really liked this.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep murky brown with some red as well. Big raspberry aromas. Like opening a jar of raspberry jam and sticking your nose right on there. Flavours are also very nice raspberry. Tray and sweet. The finish definitely has Oak in it along with some red wine. Every once in awhile I get a hot of caramel sweetness. Very interesting brew. Not a lot of Belgian quad characteristics... but still a nice beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden plum pour with a creamy eggshell crown. Loads of raspberry purée, oak, vanilla, cocoa, red wine, and caramel in this one. Rich, robust, and incredibly flavorful. Really enjoyed this!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Papago. Pours a hazy mahogany with a fluffy khaki head. Aroma is wine soaked raspberries and a bit of caramel. Taste is similar with the wine and base beer fighting. A little tartness. Medium bodied. Cool idea, but not executed as well as I had hoped.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Oakquinox 2013. Mahogany pour with a khaki head. Strong acetone aroma which ruins an otherwise good nose. Plenty of raspberry and wine. Nice oak, sweet fruit jam, caramel, grass, and a touch of vinegar. The flavor has some acetone notes to it as well. Green apple, balsamic vinegar, caramel, and tons of raspberry. Big jam character, toffee, oak, and wine. Would be a really nice beer without the acetone.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy and particulate brown with a medium, fizzy light tan head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy raspberry, fresh and green though somewhat ripe, with vinous oak notes, toast and biscuit malt with earthy yeast notes. Flavor is fresh raspberry, cookie and caramel malt with dark malt derived notes, light peppery alcohol, no hops or bitterness with dark fruits and a dry finish. Medium-full body and medium carbonation with light alcohol warmth, and no creaminess or astringency.
