750mL into tulip. aged in my cellar for the past 2 years.
A: slightly hazed, light copper body. bright white head is frothy. retention is average/good. lots of spotty lacing as the brew goes down.
S: a little tart and acidic. slightly vinous as well. a floral bouquet of sweet fermentation aromas, cara malts, and grapes. different.
T: there is a distinctive apple juice flavor in here. chewy unfermented malt sugars. I would say slightly more sweet than acidic. a minor earthy hop flavor. mostly sweet finish.
M: carb is subtle. medium, full body.
D: not sure how well this bottle held up with time. would like to have a fresh Victor to compare. regardless, haven't had a brew like this, very vinous throughout the nose and drink.
Serving type: bottle

Poured into a snifter, on draft at Cork and Cask, Cornelius NC.
I applaud the effort, interesting mess Allagash has made here. Slight head and sticky lacing look good, the brew is the color of tea and smells faintly of bread and grapes. There's the taste of malt and an odd thinness from the grapes. Overall, not something I'd go out of my way for.
Serving type: on-tap
