Man is this a big improvement over the original. The use of red wine barrels lends a tartness that overcomes the originals cloying sweetness. Aroma is currants raspberries and a hint of blackberry with belgian esters, clove. taste is tart and sip-able. palate is tart and drying. By the time I was about to order my second the keg was tapped. REALLY good.

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

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.

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.

Fantastic beer, almost saison style aroma, the time in red wine barrels gives a fantastic flavour. Excellent. Drunk during a tasting with stone’s Greg . Memorable.

stone tap takeover in tolland. Strong wine flavors balance with fruit esters and hops. Lots going on, tropical and dark fruits, all of them

Cloudy orange with a thick white foam. Aroma is fruity with some hop citrus. Flavors are slightly sour red fruit and some hop oil. Finish is dry and tart. Nice beer.

SNL (229) - - JUN 2, 2014
On tap. Hazy Golden Brown pour, minimal White head. Red wine is very apparent in both Nose and taste, typical IPA besides that. Sort of strange, but good, at least for one pint. Red wine again in the long bitter finish. Soft carbonation, heavy body.
