From a bottle. Pours clear, dark caramel with fizzy off-white head. Smells like balsamic vinegar, cereal and toasted malts, vanilla, oak, and dates. Tastes like bready malt, some caramel, dark fruit, sour notes, and some subtle acidity. Medium body and carbonation.

[Bottle] Pours reddish-brown with almost no head. Aroma is awesome. Leathery, acetic acid, berry, subtle vanilla; lots of barrel in general, but in all the right ways. Taste is outstanding too. Oak again, fairly tart, good amount of fruit that is well integrated--would have probably have pegged this as raspberry or blackberry, some alcohol. Pretty dry, long finish that is great--leathery. Overall, this is just an excellent beer. I wish I had bought more of this while I was out in California.

Bottle from Michael Burd -- cheers, buddy! Tart, dark, and complex, with distinct oak and fruit flavor, balanced by a sizable sourness. This is the kind of beer that wine country does best.

Pours a slightly cabonated deep reddish brown. Nice oak wine aroma. Taste is nice and tart, but smooth and sweet at the same time. Can really pick up on the oak.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Review from notes. Mahogany color with beige head. Aroma is really fruit forward with the currants making me think of blackcurrant wine. Also some caramel and wood notes. Taste is sweet with fruits and caramel notes at first but gets intensely sour and acidic on the finish and aftertaste. You can get a bit of warming alcohol too. Really nice fruit profile and complex taste.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is the best sour Iíve ever had. I joked that it tasted more like red wine than beer after each sip, but it really does combine the best of both very effectively. Itís sweet and itís sour and itís easy to smell all the complex goings-on from the currants fermenting in the oak barrels. Iíd drink this again and again.

From a 375 ml bottle into a Leffe glass. Batch "004x4." Pours brown with minimal head and lace. Aroma of fermented cherries and oak. Significant carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of tart apricot, cherries, apple, plums, currant, and slight malt. Overall mouth puckering tart with a fruity complexity.
