Thanks to Crystal for sharing with me. Shared with Steve & Brian.

App- I think this one looks a lot like the original but I feel its a bit different. A little darker but not by much. A very slow to form one finger bottom up head was there but left much too quickly and only a small amount lacing stayed behind.

Smell- Nice citrus aromas with a muddled yeast and a bit of bitter hops behind them. The red wine edition does add a bit of oak and a bit more booze on the nose and adds a small tannic aroma. Not much was gained from this one on the nose.

Taste- Much like the orginial, this beer is layers of flavor and very well balanced. A few ingredients have made the yeast and hops pair well to form a balanced flavor. The citrusy peel of the ingredients with a bubbly yeast character really add to this beer. Additionally when the oak and tannic flavors come across and make this a bit better than the base.

Mouth- Medium bodied and medium carbonated. I love the balance of flavors this beer leaves. The yeasty is fruity and peppery and just well done. Especially the fullness from the oak and tannic.

Drink- I loved the base beer and this really raised the bar on that beer. Great to try something new. Would love a couple bottles if they ever did.
