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.

krumbum (410) - 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.

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.

Corrinado711 (67) - - NOV 22, 2013
Ports a translucent orange with a slight amber hint thathas a very thin foam but creamy had very good lacing. Aromas of orange lemon hops and a little bit of red wine. Taste is very full with orange juice hops slightly bitter dry red wine. Awesome blend of a IPA and red wine

Peacehammer (600) - 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.

Bacterial (1205) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Draft at the Stone Company Store in Pasadena. Slightly hazy dark yellow pour with a nice thick white head. Spicy nose with hints of oak and red fruit. Really nice taste, lots of hops some slight tannins in the finish. Pleasantly dry and bitter finish. If anything, I would like a bit more barrel character.

Drake (7950) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #109. Draft at Brewvival. Pours a clear vibrant copper color with a thin foamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of juicy citrus, herbal notes, mild wood and wine. The taste is tart wine, citrus hops, pale malt. Medium bodied.

peteinSD (1281) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Tap @ Stone O’Side. Golden, slightly hazy pour with a slick of white foam. Aroma is pleasant, vinuous grapes with light , dry malt and hop bitterness. Taste is lingering red wine with light grape tart, minimal yeast/clove, pepper, and a nice balance of sweet malt and piney hop bitterness into the finish. Clean, smooth mouthfeel. The red wine influence is much stronger in this beer than other red wine treatments I’ve had from Stone and it is very well done.

OPIE788 (262) - Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Draft. Malty hop aromas. Bitter hop with a bit of oak. The red wine really dries out the finish.

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