330 ml bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy orange/amber color with about a quarter inch off-white head that fizzled away quickly. Not much lacing at all. Aroma seems a bit weak, it smells like red grapes, cherries, and grainy malt/wheat. The brew tastes like red grapes/wine, tart cherries, raisins, and grainy/wheat malt. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit slick with moderate carbonation. I think itís an OK brew, but I canít say I was impressed with it. Worth a try once, but I donít think Iíd buy it again. $6.49 a bottle.

airrick2003 (447) - Louisiana, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Appearance: pours with a smaller white head that dissipates quickly, some brown chunks in the head and in the beer, beer is very cloudy and amber in color Aroma: kind of like a Pinot noir wine yet slightly more sour, grapes, zest, slightly wild, Taste: strong grape with a wine twang at the end, kind of sour, slightest hint of bitterness towards the end, a funk is in there too, tangy Palate: leaves mouth dry, average carbonation, heavier mouthfeel Overall: this really seems like a cross between a Pinot noir and a farmhouse beer, pretty good Iíd try it again, lacks complexity

mrhoppy (1284) - Santa Clara, California, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Cloudy amber with a hint of pink. Acidic musty barrel nose. Real sour wild rustic feel to it. I like beers with wine in them. Thin body and very tart & dry. Nice sour.

Pours hazy peach into a tulip. Pinkish head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Grape skin aromas. Earthy pit fruit and molasses front to back. Lasting oak finish.

Idiosynkrasie (3623) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear amber colour with small, frothy, diminishing, white head. Light vinous aroma, silica. Taste is monotonous, light vinous, tart, silica, a touch of tannic acid; flat, though slightly prickling carbonation. Not for me.

jbruner (2161) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Zwanze Day 2013, Avenue Pub! Pours a dark reddish orange on tap with thin bubbly head that doesnít really lace. Aroma is tart fruit, musky grapes, and slight funky. Taste follows, but a little sweet. Not bad, but nothing crazy.

Slightly hazy peach color. You can really smell that wine barrel. Thin dry and slightly tart. Great dryness on the palate fades away enjoyably.
