solidfunk (3997) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Very boozy and oaky. Coudy orange with ok head and lacing. Too unbalanced on barrel and oak for my liking, with lots of wine in this and barrel. Bottle thanks to Nimbleprop at epic sour tasting.

radagast83 (4635) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Poured a hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma is light wine barrel notes, some funk. Mostly smooth malts, barrel and wine. Not bad.

craftycarl21 (2228) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 17, 2014
bottle from the DC crew’s Epic Sour tasting 2014. Definite tangy vinous character with grape, tannic tang, vanilla, a hint of heat, good nectar fruit sweetness. Pretty solid.

alexsdad06 (5408) - Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Had on draft and from the bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head that disappeared quickly. The aroma and flavor have sweetmalts, vanilla, white grape juice, bourbon, wood, caramel, additional vinous character, with a mild to moderate bitterness to the finish. A touch dry. Overall, I thought that this was pretty good, but carries a little bit of heat.

7/19/2013: Quaff Bros Savage Blank - This beer is a very interesting cross between white wine and bourbon. It is fairly light and breezy on the palatte, but goes dwn a bit boozy. I’m on the fence as to whether the white grape and bourbon actually work well together or not. Overall, the beer is fairly dry from the wine and oak, but that’s offset a bit from the vanilla and some of the light tanins coming through. An interesting experiment, to say the least, that seems to work. If only it were a bit cheaper...

Draught (sample) at The Party Source in Bellevue, KY. Rating #7 for this beer.

phaleslu (6497) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2013
22 oz. bottle from The Party Source. Pours a cloudy but bright yellow-orange with a finger of cream white head that settles into a ring. Aroma of vanilla, dried apricots, grape juice, toffee, sweet bready malts, and oak. Flavor is also led by vanilla, with apricot, grape juice, sweet malts, straw, toffee, and what tastes a bit like peach. Bourbon barrel is noticeable here for sure. The grape is more subtle. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, juicy, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Interesting beer.

DrSilverworm (6369) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2013
22oz bottle from Party Source. Shared with DanielCoor. Clear yellow orange color. Thin white head. Good amount of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, creamy lighter carbonation. Big white wine flavor profile. Vanilla noticeable in the aroma, definitely tastes like a bourbon barrel. Nice oak. Just a light boozy bite. Maybe some sort of other liquor, but nothing is out of balance, everything is in check. Nice sweet taste, light alcohol warmth. Super nice, unique, barrel-aged beer.
