4.59/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

8oz served on draught in a Jester King wine glass on 3/14/2014.

Appearance: A pale white/pink creamy, thick crown sits around the edge of the glass, atop a beautiful, hazy purple and deep crimson body.

Smell: The merlot grapes are strong here, lending floral vineous blackberry and grape notes to the sour, funky base. Very similar to a good red wine, obviously, aside from the tart funkiness.

Taste: Tart but not mouth puckering, with lots of Merlot grapes. Dark fruity blackberry and raspberry, it is very much like drinking Merlot itself. Somewhat prominent alcohol, with a grainy malt flavor on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Prickly like champagne, impossibly dry. Full bodied, without a particularly long linger.

Overall: I do wish that a bottle of this was within my reach, but I suppose it will be bottled again eventually. Really good stuff. Probably a great way to introduce wine lovers to lambics and other wild ales too. Can't wait to try the Tempranillo!

Serving type: on-tap
