look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours with a russet, burnt orange color and is capped by a decent head; spotty lacing

Smell: Fruity, with grapefruit and cherry tones; musty and oaky

Taste: The fruit flavors jut forward, bringing both grapefruit and cherry (a rather unusual combination in beer); the taste grows vinous, after the swallow, with an oaky, musty and leathery finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; moderate pucker factor

Overall: Quite unusual to have the fruit, the bitterness and the vinous character all in one beer; worth seeking out

Reviewed from notes. 750ml bottle shared by that special someone - thanks. Batch 1.

A: Pours a hazed orangish red with a thin white head and leaves splotchy lace.

N: Big bretty funk with some cheese, some wood, fruity.

T: Fruity, vinous, barnyard, earthy, a bit of rot in a good way.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes fruity, tart, with some dryness.

O: This is quite good - very good. Well done.
