Had this at Birch and Barley in a tumbler glass.

Appearance: light brown with no head or lacing. That is a first.

Smell: Unusually muted although there is a grape character with some vinous notes. Some vinegar and touch of sourness come through.

Taste: tart, vinegary, very grapey, effervescent, musty, touch of malt, red wine, slight funk.

mouthfeel: super smooth and refreshing.

Overall: Solid beer and great thirst quencher. Is it the best tart beer I have had? No. But would definitely drink again if given the opportunity.

330 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy almost red/almost purple. Not much of head, but very wispy and a thin uneven collar.

Smell - Much sharper acidity than the white grape one. A touch of grain and tons of fruitiness.

Taste - Great musty grape flavor. Grainy. Medium tang to it. Better than the other version.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Feels kinda light as a result.

Overall - Better fruit flavor and a nice tang to this one. Pretty good.

330 ml bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy orange/amber color with about a quarter inch off-white head that fizzled away quickly. Not much lacing at all. Aroma seems a bit weak, it smells like red grapes, cherries, and grainy malt/wheat. The brew tastes like red grapes/wine, tart cherries, raisins, and grainy/wheat malt. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit slick with moderate carbonation. I think it's an OK brew, but I can't say I was impressed with it. Worth a try once, but I don't think I'd buy it again. $6.49 a bottle.

appearance is a soft bronze/amber color
with an aroma of wine and a touch of alcohol.
taste is a delicious blend of malty sweetness and vine fruit that hits your tongue initially but is followed by lactic tartness quickly. if there is any brett flavor its very subdued.
mouthfeel is dry and crisp but not sharp with very little carbonation.
overall this is not a complex brew but is hugely drinkable and delicious and maintains a great balance. i could consume copius amounts of this in the winter or summer its that good.

Bottle pour at Shelton Brothers The Festival 2014 held at Crafted in San Pedro, CA.

Pours a clear light orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, and earth aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, fruit, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that smells nice, but the fruit presence is slightly better in the taste to me.

Serving type: bottle.
