radagast83 (7388) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Draft at Snallygaster 2014. Poured a golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma is mostly barrel notes, red wine, with some light , but incredibly good - with a light hoppy aroma with pine, grapefruit, floral characters. Woody. Enjoyed this one.

Pours cloudy orange with ok head and lacing. Too much barrel destroyed a good beer. What’s the point of doing this to an IPA? Good beer is gone. Some light citrus with the wine. Tap at Snallygaster.

GenDV138 (6093) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2014 6 oz draft pour at Snallygaster 2014 shared by me. Golden brown with off-white head. Aromas of citrus, floral notes, wine. Tastes of red wine, citrus, floral notes, spice. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Better without the barrel aging.

Tap at Snallygaster 2014. Red wine tannins dominated the nose of this one and followed through in the taste. Bone dry. This was a really nice brew.

Tap - average size foamy head, clear medium copper color, strong red wine aroma and flavor (much more than expected), very mild IPA flavors - the wine flavors really overtake the beer flavors, would be better with a little less time in the wine barrels, needs more beer and less wine flavors ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Sample @ Brewvival 2014. Amber pour with a small head. Loads of Belgian yeast on the nose. Red berries, apple cider. Taste is moderately tart. Acidic red wine. Wood character. Strong yeast. Full body, oily.

bhensonb (14162) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very hazy orange with a yellow/beige head. Aroma is rather citrus sour. And oaky. Med body or better. Flavor is fruity, bitingly woody, and a touch sour. Red berry is present, but hard to pin down. Seems more sour stone fruit. Finishes woodily astringent, dry, bitter, sour. Very nice.

Just not really my cup of tea. Smells super funky, tastes of wine and Belgian yeastiness. I wanted to like it, but was too funky for me.

On tap at Beer Mongers - Really wanted to like this one more.... Pours hazy orange with off-white head. The aroma has lots of red wine barrel, hints of oakiness, light Belgian notes and overall more wine heavy than expected. It has a medium body with light roughness and mildly abrasive carbonation. The beer starts off with lots of woodiness, earthy yeast and light wine notes. The finish is very very oaky. The oak was too heavy for me and the hops are not detected by me. Oh well.
