look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into proper tulip glassware by Far Bar in DTLA.

A: belgium style to the max - 1 finger white head which settles down to sliver after first couple sips. Crisp / hazy golden orange hue.

S: I have no sense of smell and wife was not there to contribute

T: Grapes (red wine) are bold and very forward. Quite hot on the back end. Sweet maltiness of a Belgium style with heavy tropical fruit notes. Hops are low profile but contribute enough to balance out the vinous character. Oak, vanilla and barnyard notes present. Balanced carbonation makes for crisp and sessionable.

O: interesting beer and fairly tasty. Definitely worth trying as it is a good take on the beer / wine crossover.
