3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a hazy, flat, amber color. There is a nice tartness in the nose that is mostly lactic. A very strong wine aroma and plenty of oak. Some dark fruit, mostly cherry, aroma. I do not get much cucumber, though. The cucumber is definitely noticeable on the palate. A lot of red wine and oak flavor with moderate tartness, though it seems to be a bit more toward vinegar. Overall a surprisingly enjoyable beer.
