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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

On draught at O’Niell’s. Pours a dense orangish amber color with a fine-bubble head. Big "bret" aroma but fortunately does dominate flavors. Medium body, nice hop flavor and supporting malty sweetness. Great complexity from wood aging. A lot going on but it works.

Draft. Gold pou slightly tanner head. Smell is barrel dominant. Oak and vanilla and some wine. IPA is tasted in the flavor with some bitterness and spice, still a lot of barrel, vanilla and red wine soaked pears.
