500ml bottle, #995/1800. Grape juice aroma with notes of citrus and red wine. Pours deep copper colored with a ruby hue, thin white head and no lacing. Starts with very sweet grape flavor with vinous notes and citrus. Finishes smooth and very red wine like with a high carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Good stuff.

16.9 oz bottle at the Crow Bar. Pours a murky brown/red with a small ring of a head. The nose is pretty tropical with notes of grass, grapefruit, pineapple, brown sugar and tart fruits. The carbonation is pretty low. The hops are citrusy, and work pretty well here. This beer isn’t outright sour, but fairly tart with lots of fruity hints. There are suggestions of figs, brown sugar and strangely, no real wine barrel character.The flavors are a little muddled, but nothing is offputting. Decent beer, but flavor-wise, not worth the price tag.
