Mrrr... Too busy of a beer, weird sourness maybe yeast, fruity malts are nice but kind of light and empty body.

mansquito (3346) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Buzz Wine and Beer, LA: Pours gen with an off-white head. Aroma is wine, yeast, berries, yeast, and sugar. Taste is a little sharp, some hops, some sweetness, wood, tartness, and a healthy dose of wine. Plenty of complexity. Very winy finish. Quite good.

Emeister84 (936) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Aromas of red delicious apples, vanilla, mild coconut. Hazy orange, quickly fading head. Subtly sweet malty tones balancing well with subtle booze and finishing alphas. Very smooth, medium-full bodied.

pete4999 (1034) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 27, 2014
On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. Really really nice beer, probably my favorite of the night. Had a very tart smell but the flavor wasn’t overpowering on the sour. Raspberry, cherry, with a little bit of wine notes....had a very red wine finish. Very enjoyable.

RedSox2004 (1232) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 25, 2014
On tap at Tony’s Darts Away. Clear dark ruby with a dense two-finger head and very nice lace. Dark fruit aromas with a touch of yeast and red wine. Berry tartness and dark fruit sweetness dominate the flavor profile, with a gentle warmth from the alcohol. Medium to full body, minimal carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a dry finish.

Barreras (969) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours a rose color with a sweet red wine aroma. Taste is a little sweet with a red wine and grape flavor. The alcohol content is initially evident but disappears rather quickly. A smooth beer for a strong ale.

Draft @ World of Beer Dadeland. Pours dark amber color with off white head. Aromas of belgian yeast, candi sugar, red wine and oak. Similar flavors. Medium body with average carbonation.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Clear dark honey golden under a thin lacy head. The aroma has an unfortunate amount of sharp woodsy white oak combined with a little boozy white wine. The taste had those same notes, lots of sharp white oak and white wine grapeiness and boozy notes, with a light blonde malt sweetness on the finish (combined with more white grapes). There’s a nice rye malt spiciness throughout.

peteinSD (1364) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Tap @ Stone O’Side. Copper and orange colored pour with a thin white head. Red wine, dry oak, and fruity peach in the aroma. Taste is subdued red wine and woody oak with fruit and slight tart. Relatively dry mouthfeel. Nice.

sonnycheeba (3495) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2014
Tap at Max’s. Pours clear golden amber with fizzy white head. Aroma is bready and cereal malts, floral notes, candy sugar, tropical fruit, and bubblegum. Flavor is strong malt base with light hop bitterness, orange peel, tropical fruit esters, and Belgian yeast esters; dry finish with a touch of boozy sweetness. Medium/full body and medium carbonation.
