Bottle. Pours pink grapefruit with off white head ring. Nose of sugared grapefruit, oak, port wine and old cherries. Taste is the same, but a bit grainy/cardboard. Finishes grape/wine. Medium body. Interesting.

Wish it were more sour. It really fades towards the end. Nose is farely tight. Would not guess this was 8%.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

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.
