Tried this at the same time as the white wine barrel version. Personally, I think that the white barrel aging suited the original style better and resulted in a better beer. The red is by no means a bad beer, but it did not resonate as strongly with me as the white. With the red, some of the stronger flavors, astringency, and more distinct wood flavor covered up some of the more delicate flavors of the base beer. Still fantastically complex and a super easy drinker. A great variant of one of my favorite beers.
