Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 04.17.14.

A: Somewhat opaque red/orange. No head with aggressive pour.

S: Spices, sweet malt, grape.

T: Grape, caramel dominate. Tangy citrus is more subtle.

M: Crisp. It felt very carbonated.

O: The lack of a head was probably because this was an old bottle. The taste was great, though. Sweet grape came on first, followed by caramel, and then a tangy citrus finish lingered. I loved it.

Rating: A
