1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
A combination of wine and beer that takes the worst of both worlds. Not a pleasant beer, from the disquieting aroma, through the interesting initial taste and the too sweet and sickly after taste.

From growler shared by beerboxer. Pours dark brown with a nice beige head and a winey aroma. There is a good brown malt base with some citrus, green grape, grape seed and a slightly bitter finish. Unique and quite tasty.
