Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange, with a reddish tint. Big red wine barrel on the nose, with a hint of Belgian yeast and hops. Flavor is very similar, nice red wine, and oak character. Hops are present, so is the yeast note, but the red wine is the star here.

Draught @ Stone 17th Anniversary Brewers Reception, San Marcos, CA
Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, red wine, oak, yeast and citrus. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long warm, oak and red wine finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (16391) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2013
On tap at Stone 17th anniversary party. An unclear, golden to orange beer with a dense off-white head. At first, it smells like tooth paste, but quickly the vanilla and red wine from the barrels kick in. Alcohol notes and tropical fruits. Full body, warming and pleasantly carbonated. Quite oaked flavor, with fruits and a touch of Belgian yeast. Nice bitterness. Lasting warming finish with oak, tannins, fruits and bitterness. Unusual but quite nice. 130816

Amazing, on tap at Library Alehouse, aged in red wine barrels, made this perfect.

krumbum (895) - truckee, California, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Cloudy glowing orange color. Very clean, light fragrant, soap like aroma. Surprisingly hop sourness. The wine pulls put and the grapes tartness, but still an underlying hop bitterness. Slight wood aftertaste.

GoForShlomo (47) - - AUG 6, 2013
A fantastically strong citrus aroma; cloudy golden appearance; strong citrus to hop flavor; moderately fizzy with a finish that lingers; overall, a good IPA made great by it's powerful aroma and uniquely strong citrus flavor ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Growler. Clear golden with a creamy white head and champagne carbonation. Beautiful floral caramel, red wine, oak, vanilla, citrus, and apple aroma and taste with a sweet wine barrel finish and a light touch of tartness. Nice soft lively palate.

brokensail (15468) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Clear golden pour with a white head. Nice wine aroma, some apple cider notes, citrus hops, and excellent pear and peach fruit notes. Mildly tart, too. Seems to have sort of an unintentional sour flavor to it, but it works nicely. Apple cider, pear, and peach fruit notes, nice citrus, and some floral hops. Good red wine notes, mild wood, and a light sweetness.

Tap at the Stone Company Store in Oceanside. Aroma is grassy, herbal, with a pleasant red wine sourness/ acidity. Not sure if its the hops or the Belgian yeast thats conflicting with the acetic wine character. Noticeable amount of oak wood mixed in the flavor too. Maybe its just me being used to red wine flavors in sour ales. Not bad, just meh.
