Bottle - Orange/red in colour. Good off white head. Fruity aroma. Low to medium carbonation. Medium body. Sweet, Caramel malts, and dark fruits (no doubt from the shiraz grapes). Hop flavours but only a very mild bitterness A slightly spicy finish. Different and quite pleasant. jkm (235) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2011
Pours a clear red with a fair and lasting head - medium bodied with a nice smooth palate. Caramel, malt, fruits and hops. A very enjoyable beer. omega (899) - NEW ZEALAND - MAR 22, 2012
Maybe I was caught up in the moment in the Barossa, but I did like this beer. The addition of red wine juice gives it a bit more complexity and makes for a lovely red hue. Full bodied and rich in the palate. MelbBrewersJD (44) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2007
Very interesting beer. Loved the ruby colour. Would have liked more aroma and can’t say I got much wine character, not that it was an issue for me. Overall an interesting beer. jxo (9) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2008 does not count
Bottle, Rich deep amber colour with very short lived head. Mild hop flavours. Shiraz addition seems to be quite subtle but still noticeable.

Bottle. I remember first trying this beer a year or so ago and not thinking much of it. I hadn’t taken notes at the time so I picked up a bottle recently for a fair judging. And am I glad I did. This one poured reddish amber with a medium beige head. A real nice aroma of ripe fruit, caramel and biscuit. The flavours mirror the aroma. The Shiraz characteristics are by no means dominating, but I think that’s actually a good thing and the reason why this beer works. It’s well balanced, fruity and has good malt backbone to match. A delicious beer. Theis (15150) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2011
