3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz bottle, from Dutchís. $6.49 retail in OH. Mostly clear red orange color. Mildly hazy. Thin, bubbly white head. No lace sticks. Trying this right after trying the white version.. Definitely mustier than the white. Some more darker flavors, some bruised red apple, pear, fresh lightly tart red grapes with a lot of skin character. Not as bright or crisp as the white, but a more interesting, complex aroma. Not as tart as the white either. More sweet taste, with a more dry finish. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Solid, interesting stuff. I prefer the white version by a hair, but this is good in a different way.

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.
