floydian1 (1464) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 10, 2013
Heavy-based 37.5cl bottle (2012 vintage). Pours murky reddish-brown with champagne-white head that dissipates quickly to nothing. Aroma is vinous with red grapes, vinegar, oak and perhaps a hint of cherries. Palate is flat and vinous with sour flavours and and a tart dry finish. Quite light bodied for the ABV.

mcberko (17840) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
750mL bottle, pours a dark amber / mahogany with a tiny ring of off-white head. Nose brings out lots of grapes, oak barrels, and wild notes. Flavour brings out loads of dry red wine barrels, lots of dry red grape skins, and a touch of wood. Very dry and vinous, with a flat carbonation. Extremely complex, but could use a higher carbonation. Quite complex, leaving a dry, vinous finish. Great stuff.

3.3

375ml bottle (vintage 2011). Cloudy dark copper colour with very small, big bubbly, instantaneously collapsing and fading, ochre head. Malty and fruity aroma, notes of grapes, a touch of nutmeg, hints of oak. Taste is minimally to moderately tart, dry, fruity, notes of grapes, fruit parings, a touch of nutmeg, oak, vinous overall; flat carbonation.

Dommod2011 (706) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
Tap at BrewDog Birmingham. I love spontaneity. Dark appearance, especially sitting outside in the dark, red and a delicious sour kick. Dave loved it, kept asking for a sip, Simon said it tasted like vinegar. Amateur. See, you asked for a description and now you get three for the price of one. Now that my friends is cracking value.
