11.2 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a slightly hazy pinkish golden color with some soapy bubbles. The aroma and flavor have a very mild tart/sour character, vinous, tannins, wood, grape juice, musty, interesting brew.

Bottle... Cloudy amber pour with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is musty, dusty and lightly fruity with mild acidity and a hint of leather. Full-bodied and mildly creamy with tingly carbonation. The flavor is tart, fruity and and moderately bitter, but also lightly sweet. Finishes tangy with lingering yeasty bitterness.

DrSilverworm (8547) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2014
11.2oz bottle, from Dutch’s. $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%.

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, it’s a bit slick with moderate carbonation. I think it’s an OK brew, but I can’t say I was impressed with it. Worth a try once, but I don’t think I’d buy it again. $6.49 a bottle.

airrick2003 (687) - 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 I’d try it again, lacks complexity
