"Not sure the abv is as advertised on RB. This ale has picked up lots of wood for only 3 months in the barrel. Maybe charred oak? Almost cedar like in itís finish. This is the red wine version that has picked up some obvious bugs to make it a bit fubky, though at this stage not overly so. Significant improvement on the base beer."

brokensail (15635) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 17, 2013
On tap @ Smoqued BBQ. Hazed brown/dark amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet sugar, sour fruit, and berry. Some oak, a bit of booze, and slight spiciness. Flavor is really weird. Sweet and sour going on. Berry, wine, and tart fruit. A touch of alcohol, some caramel, and raisin. Quite a bit of wood, too.

Ungstrup (34022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2010
Draft. A murky brown beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, lemon, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet and acidic with notes of lemon, white wine, and brettanomyces, leading to a dry, alcoholic, and woody finish.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2010
On-tap at Stone the Monday after Oakquinox. Disappointment. Why wine barrels? Pours hazy amber with a small white head, good lace. Smells like wine and wood with a hint of malt. Tastes like red wine, spice and wood with just a hint of beer even. Medium body, vibrant carbonation.

Poured a hazed dark amber color with a small off-white head. Vanilla and mildly tart malt aroma. Some cinnamon notes. The flavor had a light tartness to it. Caramel malt taste with mild woody notes. Bitter finish. Medium bodied and fairly warming.

malrubius (2519) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 31, 2009

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Hand bottle: Hazy deep bronze orange with an off white head. Infected aroma- leathery, grainy and vague. Crisp feel with no evidence of 12% ABV. Odd funky notes- almost seems like a brett strain, but itís apparent infection. Some citric notes with little of the malt base coming through. Mainly grainy and earthy- quite simple. Was this intentionally inoculated?

yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Handbottle, thanks Max. May not have held up too well but wasnít all that bad. Lots of oak, some faint dry funk. Flavor had a little pepper, belgian spice, sweetness and lemongrass. Bretty finish, not too bad.

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle courtesy of Max at Peterís tasting. Pours a just hazy brown without much of a head. Plum, prune, malt, light earthy hop presence. Medium bodied, sweet, lemony. Finishes up with some crisp dry lemon and bitterness.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2009
On tap. Cloudy - almost muddy - and opaque amber with a creamy beige head. Very tart and fruity nose. Medium body, distinct Bretty accents, yeast and wood. Dry and astringent finish. Quite unique. 080709
