Draft at Kudu. Deep honey pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma of red wine, maraschino cherry, oak, buttered toast, subtle vanilla with faint citrus and yeast. Smooth round body with, oak dominating the flavor with cherry, dark fruits, buttered toast, marmite with some underlying citrus. Nice carbonation and mild warming finish. Pretty solid and one of the better aged IPAs out there. Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Tap @ Mongers.
A: Cloudy red with a thin white head. Lacing.
N: Big cherry, lemon zest, yeast, diacetyl, burnt grain, esters, oak, sage.
T: Slight sourness surrounded by big bitterness.
M: Resinous, medium body, dry.
O: A beer that shows more wine barrel than Belgian IPA character. I don’t know that I’d have it again. Very oaky, without any the flavors i enjoy in the original. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured pale, hazy yellow with a mild head. Aroma of earthy hops with vinous fruit. Belgian yeast played nicely with the wine barrel characters. With some age bitterness was low a nice fruity tones from the barrel and yeast. marcus (10144) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 4, 2014
On tap at Fredfest 2014. Pours golden with a modest off-white head and a sour fruit aroma. There is a strange tropical fruit flavor with a red wine finish. sonnycheeba (5965) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2014
Tap at Max’s. Pours clear gold with creamy white head. Aroma is cracker and biscuit malts, grape must, perfume, light tropical fruit, and some floral notes. Flavor is chewy malt base, smooth wine flavors, some hop bitterness, and tropical fruit esters; dry finish with a hint of oak. Medium body and carbonation.

On tap at Cheeky Monk. Pour is clear orange with a frothy white head and great lacing. Fruity, spicy, oaky, white grapes, bready, light fig, raisin, dark cherry, and oranges in the aroma. Taste French oak, orange peel, grapefruits, somewhat grassy, alcoholic, caramelly, dates, grapes and dark fruits. Slick mouthfeel with high carbonation. Cool beer.

A Belgian style ipa that is super fruity. Smells fruity and borders on a trippel. Looks orange in color and has a fruity finish. Ha at American junkie

Draft. Malty hop aromas. Bitter hop with a bit of oak. The red wine really dries out the finish. Drake (13646) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #109. Draft at Brewvival. Pours a clear vibrant copper color with a thin foamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of juicy citrus, herbal notes, mild wood and wine. The taste is tart wine, citrus hops, pale malt. Medium bodied. Bacterial (2986) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Draft at the Stone Company Store in Pasadena. Slightly hazy dark yellow pour with a nice thick white head. Spicy nose with hints of oak and red fruit. Really nice taste, lots of hops some slight tannins in the finish. Pleasantly dry and bitter finish. If anything, I would like a bit more barrel character.
