Poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a reddish amber color with a little gold mixed in. Very interesting color. Looks like what I would expect a beer aged in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels would look like. Head disappears very quickly and is very effervescent.

Smells like raspberries with defininate alcohol character. Getting the wine barrel smell as well.

Funky kind of taste. At first. That yields to raspberries. Quite tart but not overly tart. You can taste the alcohol as well. Not really my kind of thing, but I can appreciate it.

Mouthfeel is bubbly and light. Smooth and easy to drink.
