3.82/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Beer poured from bottle into a snifter shaped glass - Brewed in 2010

A - Beer poured with a dark red-burgundy colored body; no visible carbonation was present after the pour; some lacing formed on the sides of the glass; little white head formed, not much, but held well; opaque body

S - Very sour; grapes; Lambrusco grapes; crisp; oak and cork; some spices; vinegar

T - Flavors of cork and oak are very prevalent in this beer; Barbera grapes are present and add a nice complimentary kick to the overwhelming sour and cork flavored beer; astringent

M - Thin; plastic aftertaste; not very effervescent; lingering flavors of sourness; leather aftertaste

D - Overall, not bad; I gave this a higher taste score mainly because I thought the brewer did a fantastic job of blend the grapes and sour notes to create a really unique beer, even though I'm not really a fan of this type of beer; something definitely worth trying

A- pours a dark dark amber color with some ruby tones. A finger of tan slightly purple head that quickly recedes into nothing. No lacing.

S- starts off with an intense tart fuit character of old world vinious grape and a fresh dark cherry pit notes. Middle is soft intergrated funk with a predominate acidic character and phenolic medicinal qualities. Red wine tannic aromas give a complexity to the nose. Finishes dry with an assertive French oak aroma.

T- tons of dark tart pitted fruit. Incredible dark cherries and huge old world grape with a new world Jammy fruit forward quality. Tart acidity with a tannic quality which puckers the side of the cheeks and imparts a red currant note. Finishes bone dry with soft light French oak and a breath of grape skin.

MF- jammy that transitions into a acidic dry mouthfeel.

D- quenching and for the strength it is unreal. Can't tast the alcohol at all!!!

Overall very unique, complex and memorable. Crosses so many genres. Flemish red? American wild ale? WINE... No it is an intense inspiring brew that makes you put your faith in Italian beer.
