Bottle. Wood, toffee malt, and dry hay aroma. Amber with small head. Mildly sweet toffee malt, moderately sour vinegar, and mildly bitter grass flavor. Good body and balance. Okay - basic. koleminer20 (3498) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Enjoyed at a tasting at Brian’s house on February 08. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a darker golden orange with a thin bubbly ring of off white head and a good lace as it falls. The aroma is light. There is a light grape must in there, but the oak is very heavy. There is a touch of vinousness to it, but I think it’s all from the cab barrel. The flavor matches this pretty spot on. There is a light grape must and a heavy barrel and light vinous influence on the beer. It’s decent, but very light. I would expect a heavier influence from the grapes. The mouth feel is light and clean with a softer carbonation and a lingering vinous barrel on the back end. Not terrible, but not great by any accord. dogfish120love (1325) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 28, 2017

3 oz pour at Hops & Pie. Clear reddish amber appearance with a small head. Vinous, light funky aroma with notes of grape, caramel, oak and maybe a hint of vanilla. Similar flavor, mildly tart with a soft feel, pretty tasty overall.
