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 (14170) - 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

Pours a murky dark amber color with a small off-white head. A bit of sour cherry aroma along with some vinegar and damp, musty oak. Rather bland on the nose and the flavor. There is a little bit of tartness, but itís somewhat sweet and bready. Mild acetic qualities and a definite mustiness.
