3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours an orangey-brown garnet hue with small tan head that quickly subsides. Aroma is wine grapes, plums, oak barrel, vinegar, lemon zest, light cocoa, alcohol. Taste begins sweet with notes of milk chocolate and cherry before fading into spritzy red wine, caramel, orange, amaro, and lingering woody tannins. Fairly light and refreshing for the ABV. Nice, if not quite as rich or complex as other examples of this style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy ruby/amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of light sourness, light red wine and oak, light notes of blackberries and dark fruits, and some darker malts. Flavor the same with a pretty nice blend. Average texture. A cool beer but could be more sour.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home with Justin and Danielle. Pour is clear amber with a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Tangy, fruity, oaky, caramel, light toffee, blackberries and plums in the aroma. Taste is grapey, tangy, red berries, caramel, oak, and light spice with a semi-sour and sweet finish. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not bad, but nothing spectacular.
