Orange reddish in color.... Aroma of red wine barrel, Belgian malts, dried fruits, cherries... Flavor is kinda strange, some cherries, harsh alcohol notes, a little metallic on finish, some bitterness... Not good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

strap (824) - Sindelfingen, Baden-Wrttemberg, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2016
Holy crap, there's a lot going on with this beer. The wine booziness really comes through on aroma and flavor. You can also taste some cherries and sourness. A highly complex sipping beer. On tap at the new pub in Berlin ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slowrunner77 (10746) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Draft @Stone Ocenaside last time down. Brief notes: BSA resembling a dubbel more than anything else, but with a lightly sweet and tart fruitiness from the wine barrels present throughout. Enjoyed, but pretty expensive ($1 ish per ounce)

Strong aromas of yeast and bready malt with a slight oak and tart undertone. Quite complex. Reddish-orange color with a big foamy head. Full body and smooth.

Draught at Stone Liberty Station, San Diego. "Sour Saturday" during SDBW 2015. Hazy orange/copper beer with a nice offwhite head. Solvent aroma, furniture polish, citrus, hay, some fruits. Sourish polish flavor, yeasty, woody notes. Bad keg?

Strykzone (6938) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Sampled at gabf. Hazy golden. I smell cherries, earth, and malts. Earthiness leads. Mild bitterness. Complex. Interesting stuff. Hops add a different dimension. Euro. Not sure what to think. But I like it.

On tap at Bangers. In Austin. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma is full of red wine and toffee. The flavor is similar with a good bit of red wine, light oak, tannins, toffee and biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
