Suttree (5768) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2015
Bottle from grownfool - Thanks! purplish burgundy, no head. Smells winey, funky and kind of woody. Really nice palate - smooth, juicy yet rich. Lots of fruity grape notes as well as red wine, tart and tannic, and woody as well. Second pour has more yeast in it, which adds some vanilla and banana flavors. Really enjoyable.

Dr_Fellini (1018) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours an absolutely beautiful deep ruby rose color with a thin fizzy off white head. Aroma is a pleasant tart grape character, oak. Flavor has a solid sour to it, with hints of oak and red wine. Way underrated in my opinion. Solid. Thanks P!

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a modest white head. Nose is intensely sour and vinous, lightly woody. Huge sour impact with a dry vinous quality. Fruity and funky. Beautiful beer.
