Pour on tap at Northern Lights Rare Beer Fest, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of pepper, red wine, slight clove into a bit of oak, slight earthy note with a lot of dirty, yeasty notes. Taste was a mix of pepper, red fruit, red wine, some oak into some dark fruit, caramel, toffee, finishing fairly dry, slightly sweet.

March 28, 2015 - taster pour at the Rare Beer Fest in St. Paul. Orangish yellow pour with limited head. I usually like beers aged in red wine barrels, but this was the second belgian aged in red wine at the event that just didn’t work for me, weird.

Draught. Pours a very slightly hazy clear lighter amber color with a moderate white head on there. Nose has some grape and wine elements to it, though it seems to remain dry and relatively bright. Taste is slightly sweet, actually, and has a dry finish with a pretty good bite.

Tmoney99 (11473) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Draft. Poured hazy dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted malt, yeast and dark alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

RobertDale (3916) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Sample at Strong Ale Festival 2014. Comes a dark orange with a decent off-white head. Aroma of fruit, malt, and yeast. Taste is sweet fruit, malt, yeast, and some wine barrel. Pretty good.

BelgianBeerGal (3289) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Draft at Fishale. Hazy golden brown pour with a white film. Very light aroma that only has a hint of wine and not much else. Flavor starts with a little yeasty malt but quickly switches to wine with some lingering booze. Okay.

Dogbrick (8971) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2014
On draught at Petrol Station. Clear ruby-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of oak, fruit and biscuit malt. Medium-bodied with a vinous oak character and notes of earthy yeast, doughy malt and spice. The finish is oaky with a vine fruit and spiced apple aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
