750 ml corked and caged bottle. Purchased at Whole Foods in Chicago. Day 2 of epic DrJay visit tasting.
Pours a cloudy amber/orange colour, like juice, with a thin egg shell head forming, drops a bit of lace and drops to a thin ring rather quickly. Smell is neat, grapes, some wine, bready, wood, lightly sour fruits, apricots, a little musty, sweet and sugary. Taste is similar, some caramel and bready malts up front, grapes and a wine sharpness, vanilla and oak, some orange peel, malty finish, and a bit yeasty. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with high carbonation, pretty neat. The wine doesn't come through as good as I expected, but this was a pretty solid beer.
