Did you ever try to siphon gas and got a little in your mouth? That's what this beer tastes like. I hated it before it even got to my mouth. It has a weird wine aftertaste that sticks in your sinuses and won't go away.
This is my first review, and I hate to be so negative. I encourage one and all to try this beer and enter your own review. Tell me if I'm wrong.
Sorry Stone Brewery - love most of your beers. This was a strikeout.

On-tap at Back Country Pizza in Boulder, CO. Served in a small snifter.

A: The beer has a pale amber hue and a dense eggshell cap. Head retention is just OK and no lace is left behind.

S: This beer's nose is its strong suit. I picked up heavy fruit aromas of passion fruit and pear, plus a light whiff of citrus. A touch of vanilla rounds things out.

T: The promise of the nose falls short in the flavor. The beer starts out with many of the aromas from the nose. Bitterness is light and bolstered by a mild sourness. And then the beer just sort of stops. The taste abruptly fades after the initial burst and leaves almost no lingering flavors. Very odd.

M: A light body makes for easy drinkability. There's not quite enough carbonation at work.

O: I'm really torn on this one. The aromas are worth the price of admission. However, the flavor really disappointed me. It came and went way too fast for my tastes. I kept wanting more to happen.

Served in a pint glass at the Daily Growler in Columbus, OH. Appears a good amber color, with minimal head. The head disappears quickly, and leaves no lacing to speak of.

The nose is fairly muted, but all over the place, as expected. There is a good caramel sweetness, notes of Belgian yeast, wine, and just a bit of citrus. The taste is also very complex. There is sweetness from the malts, as well as notes of the wine barrels up front. The Belgian yeast then comes through, and the wine barrels still stick out. The finish has the bitterness that is to be expected, but it's unlike any other finish I've ever experienced. The complexity is wonderful, but I'm not sure that the combination of everything really works all that well...

The mouthfeel is very smooth, heavy, and finishes in an overly sticky way. Overall, this is a very complex brew, but just doesn't quite do it for me. The wine that is accentuated throughout detracts from the other characteristics. Definitely interesting, but not great.

Draft at WOB Gainesville. Pours a clear dark copper with pretty one finger white creamy head. Aroma of big wine barrel, oak, sweet fruits. Flavor follows with a big white wine presence, Oakes Chardonnay, more oak, light pear and white grape. Lingering oak on the palate. Slick mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation. Interesting beer.
