COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rapture is upon us! Itís a 6.7% American Wild Red Ale that has undergone 100% of its fermentation and 18 months of aging in pinot noir wine barrels on a collection of micro flora that has created wonderful flavors of berry fruits, oak and a pronounced, yet quite pleasant tartness. The acidity is rounded out with a muted vinous quality, satisfying maltiness and effervescent mouthfeel that is sure to bring you joyful ecstasy.

yngwie (13210) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG-12. It pours a more or less clear body, amber in color and with a small, off-white head. Sourish, almost vinegarish nose with some berries and dried fruits. Vinous aroma with vinegar, dried fruits, berries and some notes of caramel. Full-bodied and with some warming notes, rather tart. Lasting finish. Certainly a beer I like, but I still think it lacks a bit on complexity. Like that itís quite low in ABV though. 120818

MotherBrother (690) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2012
Pour murky brown, with a small off-white head. Aroma of sour berries, brett, bread, slight hay, barnyard and some slight woody notes as well. Well balanced, and easy drinking. The taste is sour, with some faint woody and sweet notes. Medium bodied, with a semi-flat carb.

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JUN 28, 2012
75 cl bottle. Hazy copper pour, small white head. Aroma is sour with prominent berry notes - lots of sour raspberries. Musty oak notes and vanilla. Nice dry red wine tannins and brettanomyces notes. The brett us held back and compliments the wine notes and sweetness very well. Taste us nicely sour, nice raspberries, lovely wine barrel Pinot Noir notes, tannins, vinegar notes, lovely brett. What strikes me about this beer is its elegance and its wonderful balance. Very masterful and well crafted.

750 ml bottle I believe from dmac?? Thanks, Dave. An exciting rate on a lazy summer Sunday. Pours a rich well hazed copper brown pour, healthy orange red glow and mellow haze throughout. A frothy tannish head that dies to a small ring, laces small. Aromas are a luscious sour brown base preaching sour red fruit, cherries and raspberries, touch of soured plum mixing with firm red wine tannins, oak, some mellow red wine vinegarette. Red wine elements grow, lacto like yogurt, sour lemons, and some funky brett sneak in, dry and funky. Touches of biscuit, bready malts, not much though. A firm red wine base with sour red fruits makes itís presence felt. Initial is quite lovely, offering a lighter end of medium bodied feel, firm sourness from cherries, raspberries, touches of melon, red wine and more fruity white wine citrus and melon. Touches of vanilla, grapeskin tannins, and wine. A kiss of spirit with a touch of biscuit and maltiness, offers a bit of body that offers something to hang onto the palate, good balance with sour berry and wine barrel character. Middle offers some firm sourness, red berry elements run over each other with cherry, raspberry, and some gentle kisses of currant. Red wine plays well, a bit of vinegar, but staying away from anything cloying or acidic, the balance is really on here with a bit of body to give it a great mouthfeel. Considerably better than Riserva, offering more balance and body, less ABV related harshness and no harsh acedic quality. Very nice here. A good barrel presence, good flavors, firm sourness that doesnít get offensive and a touch of the maltbill hanging on to leave a bit of body. Sour red fruit, red wine, some touches of melon, citrus, yogurt, and oak. Very nice. Great flavors and feel on the palate. Well done sour effort from Weyerbacher well improved over the dry and boozy Riserva.
