I expected something similar to Cascade Vine and got a beer that was way different for better and worse, kind of like a tarted up quad with more complex fruity notes than just pure grape juice. Curious. BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Reddish brown in color thin head. Nice Sour aroma and flavor. Big fruit like finish this as a very tasty sour dry ale. I was impressed. marcus (10865) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 5, 2014

>> Clear purple pour with great pinkish foam. Nose is buttery oak barrel, phenolic yeast, spice, salt. Taste is chlorine drying, intense salt and sour raspberry. Tannic, salty, chlorine.
(Draught) Pours a clear orange body with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel, plum, leather, and vinous. Flavor of caramel, plum, brett, raisins, grapes, and brown sugar with a moderately dry finish.

Draft. Reddish purple pour with an off white head. Definitely a lot of grapes in this. Red wine grapes, sweet grape juice, light earthiness, and mildly tart. Too sweet for my taste, with moderate sourness. Decent. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 21, 2011
On tap. Pours with a clearish red hued body with a white head. Aromas of grapes, jammy, merlot, peppery, funk and brett. Flavors are fruity, estery, sour. Lots of funk and red wine, grapes. Strawberry and jammy. A bit of manure. Dry with medium carbonation. MattH (921) - California, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Tap at the Tripel in Playa Del Rey. Purple pour. Basically the color of cabernet. Sour aroma. Taste of sour cabernet. High carbonation. This is really a good sour. Reminded me a lot of Consecration. beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Pours a reddish purple. Aroma is a combination of wine and concord grapes. Taste is tart and very sparkly in the palate. Big grape taste throughout. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 11, 2011
A: The beer pours a purple-red sort of color with a fizzy off-white head.
S: Smells very much like grapes. Almost like Welch’s grape juice. Quite sweet and sugary with only a mild tartness. There is a light mustiness and a little bit of grass and lemon.
T: Sligtly metallic up front followed by a light tartness. Still tons of grape character to it and some of the same sweetness that was on the nose. Still a bit grape juice-like, a little too much so for my tastes.
M: medium bodied with carbonation on the low end of medium.
O: A little better than Cabernale, but could have used a lot more tartness.
