First time using the new rating system for reviews. Let's give it a shot. Change is good.
On-tap @ Barcade in Brooklyn, NY.
10 oz pour served in a medium-sized red wine globe-shaped glass. Beautiful, slightly hazy, orange, plum color. Very small head that possibly suffered from a lack of carbonation. Unfortunate, as I have a feeling it would have really enhanced the overall experience of the beer.
Right off the bat, the complexity of the aroma can be detected. Lots of ripe fruits, notably apples, plums, and apricots, with some mild citrus in the background. Plenty of sour funk but not overwhelming.
The flavor was sweet, fruity, and sour. A little bit of bready malt to balance things out. Coats the tongue well. Quite refreshing and easy on the palate for such complexity.
A really interesting brew that blurs the lines between saison, gueuze, and red wine. Would love to try it out of the bottle next time to see if the carbonation issues are resolved.

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Dated October 2013. Cork hit the ceiling, but no gushing.
A: Amber/rose-colored body with good clarity. Scant white head that rapidly disappears. Light lacing.
S: Light brett with vinous quality. Grapes and more subdued stone fruit. Mild earth.
T: Tart initially with a dry, even-handed Brett character shortly thereafter. There is the presence of red wine and associated tannins. Mostly dry finish. Lightly hopped. Alcohol presence is average for the ABV. Tartness lingers in the aftertaste.
M: Light-to-moderate carbonation with a fairly light body. Open on the palate.
O: Solid brew, if a bit less impressive than expected. Probably should have sat on this one a bit longer. I was hoping for a bit more complexity, but fans of wine barrel aging and brettanomyces will enjoy this.
