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.

[ Keg ][ 4oz ][ Stone Oceanside ][ $2 ][ Angled Snifter ][ 4.9.15 ]
>> Hazy red orange with weak foam. Funky nose with bourbon, poundcake, grape juice, bourbon sour mixed drink. Taste is sweet, syrupy up front, juice box, black pepper... probably from red wine barrel A bit dusty, astringent. Front palate is too syrupy initially and the finish too dry/peppery. It’s drinkable, but more than a sample would be too much.

Dr_Fellini (898) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Draft at big bold beer fest. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with an off white head. Aroma is very mildly sour, sour grapes, touch of bitterness. Same in flavor. More tart, but not a true sour. Ok, nothing special.

Complex, socky, caramel and fruity aroma. Nicely hopped, some mineral notes, alcohol bitterness, yeasty, peppery, woody. Woody finish tangy aftertaste. Clearish honey color. Interesting, not hugely drinkable for me. On tap, Baby Proof.

Had on draft, but this is one of the new 500 ml releases from Stone as well. One of the rare instances where I like the barreled beer less than the original. The reason being most all of the dry blegian yeast/hoppy interplay is completely covered by the vinous, sour, fruity and acidicness of the barrels. Not a bad beer, just a completely different beer that is not as great as the original."

On tap 5 oz. pour at Max's in the Fell's Point district, Baltimore, MD. Clear, golden yellow with an off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of caramel, red wine, citrus, apricot, tropical fruit and spice. Taste of cabernet sauvignon, caramel, tropical fruit, orange, oak and yeast. Medium body and medium/low carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radagast83 (5812) - Fairfax, 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.

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.
