3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle to snifter. Pours clear bright amber with a quick white soapy head that dissipates to a faint wispy film. Aroma has a lovely sweet tartness of wood vanilla and sour sugar (very subtle and smooth). Taste is crisp and clean with a bitter subtle tartness of apples and grape peel and leather that leaves you with dry woodiness. Palate is medium and refreshingly crisp with a gentle carbonation and leaving a drying finish. Very smooth and enjoyable beer with an awesome balance being 8.5 % alcohol. I would consider buying again!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden pour with white head. Slightly sour acidic notes, which I attributed to the wine barrels. Didn’t really delve too deeply into this one, but It was definitely not worth the price.

Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours hazy orange with a slight head. Aroma is rich and sour. Med body. Flavor is sour. But like a mix of peach and oak. I’m not getting much wine here. But it is very astringent. This is fairly complex. Delicious.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tasted on 8/20/11 from a capped and plastic covered 375mL bottle purchased at West Lakeview Liquors. Pours a murky brown apple cider color with some tan bubbles that quickly disappear, leaving nothing behind. The nose is tart with cheese pizza that has too much tomato sauce, and the little rye crisps from Gardetto’s, very herbaceous and green. The flavor is more of the same with some added caramel malt sweetness. The body is light, almost watery, with no carbonation and a long herbal tomato finish.

Bottle from City Beer. Pours cloudy copper with a thin white head and a fruity aroma. There is a slightly sour toffee flavor with a hint of fruit and a dry oak finish. Complex and tasty.
