corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Pours a very cloudy, dark chocolate brown color with mahogany edges when held to a light source. Almost completely still with a minuscule beige head that immediately disappears. No lacing to speak of. Slightly funky aroma but its more malt forward than expected. Slightly vinous with subtle oak and acetic character. Musty barnyard notes with acetic vinegar and dark chocolate covered sour cherries. Really surprised about the nose on this beer. Chocolate malt sweetness is prominent, especially as it warms. Was expecting more acetone, funk and vinous berries. Medium body with tight carbonation and a nice funky yeast character thats integrated into the acetic acid and vinous fruit notes. Slightly tart but not overly sour with the vinous merlot and dark fruit notes canceling out much of the unpleasant acetic character. Pleasantly surprised at the balance. Subtle roast with some nice caramel and chocolate malt sweetness followed by sour cherry, vinous grape and other dark berries. Complex and surprisingly easy to drink.

[5628-20130816] Tap. Mild aroma, not much coming through. Hazy, dark red brown body with a quick foamy white head. Mild watery fruit grain flavour. Light-medium body has a sour grape kick in the very background. Interesting. (5/3/7/3/11) 2.9

egajdzis (6276) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Murky red brown color with a small, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of wood, juicy grapes, leather, and a bit of vinegar. Taste of juicy grapes, bacteria, wood, and a slightly sour finish. Preferred this over the cherry version.

Damico (3145) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Pours amber with candy apple hue and lacey sandy head. Aroma is lighter, some grape notes are there. Flavor is funky yeast, with a pleasant light fruity tartness. The grapes are tame, but a bit juicy and delicious.

reggiedunlop (3697) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2013
pours an opaque ruby/brown with a thin tan head. aroma has notes of grape and cherry...slightly vinous. flavor follows suit and adds a bit of tartness andfaint balsamic like notes...woody though it is tank aged. mouthfeel is light and fizzy with a dry earthy/vinous finish that touches on leathery.

2013-08-16. Hazy brown body with a small off white head. Flavour is pleasantly sour, with sort of a lactic character and fruity note. Lingering lactic tang in the finish and aftertaste. Aroma is lightly musty, lactic, with notes of attic and a winery cask room. Average bodied palate, very light carbonation. On tap at the brewpub, Williamsport
