pours a dirty brown. has this bit of clearness with a muddy mess. looks nice. lacks head from pour, otherwise nice.

light grape, comes off as a white grape. fairly fresh. slight vinegar tones with a slightly oaky and funkiness.

light sourness, maybe a hint of tartness up front. as it fades, the grape flavor emerges and brings out the life in this. some light brown ale through the finish with a lingering funk. aftertaste is grape.

mild carbonation, but smooth. dry finish.

overall, this is good. would maybe like a bit more grape. i would not sit on this as once the grape fades, the complexity of this will fade. drink now IMO, would drink this again. drinks easily.

Pours a grapefruit red color with a thin white head. Nose is wildly funky with some rotting vegetables, funky cheese, and citric notes. Taste starts off with grainy malts and some grape flavors. Moves on to some sweeter malt flavors mixed in with a vinous character. A lot of corn flavors finish it off, with lingering vinous flavors. Decent body that goes down well. Overall, this one didn't excite as much as I hoped. It seemed a little rough around the edges in the nose and taste. It might settle out over time...I would sit on this.
