Draft at Churchkey. Hazy light brown color, beige edge head. Aroma of floral yet vinous hay and light vanilla. Taste is light and funky port wine. Interesting combo that sort of works. Dogbrick (14300) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Sample at the Studio 35 Barrel Aged Beer / Slap Shot screening on 02/10/2013. Pours a hazy amber-orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of bready malt, caramel and fruit. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, tart fruit, oak and yeast. The finish is slightly sour and fruity with a lingering oaky vinous aftertaste. I was a little skeptical about a Zinfandel aged beer but this works pretty well. crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2013

Had some of Paul’s at Local Option. Thanks, Paul! Pours a deep amber color with no head. Huge sour grape notes, with cola sweetness, oak, and earth. Thin-bodied, with virtually no carbonation. I seem to have had a different experience with this than others. A bit disappointing, and didn’t drink at all like a saison.
