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.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - SEP 8, 2012
750ml bottle. Rating #68. Deep and pretty dark and hazy brown amber color with a small light tan head. Nice aroma, tart fruitiness, some dark fruits as well and some woodiness. Interesting flavor, more wood and tart apple like thing, maybe pear instead actually. Pretty nice overall. (2490)

20120907 750ml bottle from somewhere I canít recall. Cloudy dark amber color with lasting though small tan head. Aroma is wickedly ripe with apple cider vinegar and sour cherries, though also quite sweet and really generally reminiscent of the regular Rodenbach. Flavor is woodier Rodenbach and thatís not so bad. The dryness isnít quite there, but maybe it would develop, and the finish is rather cardboardy. Lingering vinous notes. Somewhat mineral or salty. Light bodied overall. Itís a fair effort, but nothing exciting although at first whiff I was pretty hopeful.

Bottle, 09/03/2012. Pours dark copper, ruby highlights, thin head. Aroma of dark berries, light lactic acid, sharp oak with touch of vanilla, brett, earthy red wine. Taste is tart, lactic, dark fruits, oak, balsamic, vinous. Soft, not too sour. Actually well done, well balanced, enjoyable. Hope to come across this again.

yngwie (16510) - 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
