3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Pours rusty brown and cloudy with some sparse carbonation. Smells of dry malt, some underlying funkiness, some brett, slightly tarte, peppery, floral, perfumy. Nice nose on this one. Tastes dry and spicy with some peppery splashes, and a dry, oaky finish. Interesting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Label shows "Brewed in 2009" and "Ale Aged in Oak Barrels". Pours a murky brown with a short, fizzy tan head. Aroma is strong grape and grape skins, wet wood and big yeast notes. Taste reflects the barrel aging and the effects of the wine on the beer. More woody notes with strong grape/wine notes, soft maltiness, big yeast notes and dried fruit. Body is light-medium with a soft carbonation and a pleasant dryness throughout. Ends with more wood notes, wine/grape flavors, soft malt, dusty yeast and dried fruit.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle... ugly murky brown, hardly any head... weak but nice nose, sour wine with caramel, dead finish with oak, a sweet generic fruit on the finish... really disappointing taste, super light and watery, woody raspberry wine juice, not a fan, wow, borderline bad
