Dark brown color, 1 finger brownish head. Aroma of red wine, white wine, raspberries, dark fruits, chocolate, nuts. Taste is great balance of sweet, sour and bitter, fruity flavor, refreshing. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. Exciting beer

RexTalionis (2356) - FINLAND - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle 37,5 cl, BBE 23.04.2018. Pours dark brown in color with thick and creamy cappuccino head. Vinous notes at first - feels almost like some rum and dark ripe fruits being there mixed with some almonds, sweet malty notes, there’s even some light wooden notes and hints of berries in aroma. It’s just a wonderful start. And the nose is wonderful throughout the whole bottle, what a treat. Notes of red wine, some dark fruity sweetness and raspberry freshness in taste. Slightly tart mouthfeel. Underneath there’s also some sweetish chocolatey notes and more vinous notes. The raspberry steps up a bit and it feels just more evident here than it was in aroma. Nice and long-lasting vinous notes in aftertaste.

Ruddy ruby brown pour with one finger of sudsy tan head. Absolutely wonderful nose. Tons of dried dark fruit with a nice fresh/sweet raspberry character. Rich toffee notes. Very nice flavor. Lots of dark fruit and even more raspberry. Lightly chalky notes. Medium full body and lightly tannic.

Benzai (7322) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle @ Christian Firtal, Odense. It looks black-ish, but in reality I think it’s very dark red-brown colored with a medium sized beige head. Complex aroma of raspberry, red and white wine as the label says. Flavor also has raspberry, wood, slightly tart, a bit dry and also clearly red and white wine. This is a very successful brew imo. Very balanced, very nice.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottled. Poured murky brown with a short-lived head. The aroma picked up lots of raspberries with fruity backing. The flavor found tart raspberry seeds upfront with bread and honeyed notes backing.. slicy and a bit hot on the finish with more vinous notes. Medium-bodied with low-ish carbonation on the palate.. a bit on the syrupy side.. aiight.

MIBRomeo (2541) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Brown to red pour with a dirty brown head. Winey aroma with tons of raspberry quite sweet. For whatever reason my first rating got cut off so I’m updating. the scoring, but the details have been lost...

JPDurden24 (1548) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Dark brown/reddish pour with aroma of fruity cherries and raspberries. There is a definite wine character, as well as some tart. Pretty damn tasty.

Marheb (1970) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2013
Des notes chocolatés, caramel brűlé, framboises et une bonne vague lactique pour enrober le tout...Un véritable ’’sour sipper’’.

From bottle Bought in Riga. Nice head, could have been a bit thicker. Looks like a Quad, smells like rasberryes, and not the artificial kind, but the natural lovely smelling ones. A little bit of alcohol on the nose. The taste is rasberry, a bit sour, and a little bit of roasted caramell and alcohol. I would buy it again!
