look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottled 2011. Tulip glass.

A: Pours a brilliant, pinkish red with a finger of white-pink head. Excellent ring of retention which lasts the entire glass. Not much lacing to speak of.

S: Super funky barnyard notes with hints of oak, vanilla, raspberry, and cherry. Some of the funk recedes as the beer warms.

T: Raspberry, strawberry, tannic oak, a very nice moderate sourness, with a long, sour-warhead-like finish with slight sweetness and red wine.

M: Medium body and carbonation with a creamy texture.

O: Exceedingly drinkable, the sourness is balanced with the fruit nicely. Oak and merlot grape flavors/aromas are much subtler than I was expecting.

Ultra rare 37,5 cl bottle. Ha, ha, ha! Taste the rareness....

A: dull, oxidized purple color. Forms a small, faintly purple tinted whitish head. Little retention. No lacing.

S: bright and acidic with strong grape skin notes. Smells like a fermented Concorde grape juice.

T: taste is similar, that is it tastes like fermented Concorde grape juice. Vinous, but distinct from wine itself. Moderately tart, mildly acidic, grapy tannins. Getting a lot of grape skins. Finishes with a mild astringency.

M: medium bodied, tart, mild astringency.

O: a nice beer.

Bottle at 3 penny taproom to hfs sniffer

A: a red plum color that I can best describe as Scarlett with a thin White lacing it is semi cloudy but not near opaque with no floaters

S:it's cleaner then I expected it to smell not a whole lot of funk though its there the grape must definitely comes out a very balanced smell

T:wow this is where this bee really takes the cake it is sweet sour and tart up front there is lot of fruit flavor of grapes and green apple it lasts all throughout the finish which is also very sweet

M: smooth and crisp goes down very easily lots of sweet but not overpowering the bubblyiness makes this really drinkable

O: probably the best sour I've ever had a balance d great sour/tart flavor with fruit grape and a crisp bubbly really drinkable feel I understand why cantillon is number one
