Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: akorsak on 06-10-2007

The Victor Ale was inspired by its feminine-named predecessor, the Victoria Ale. With chardonnay grapes to make the Victoria Ale unique, our brewers decided to use red grapes for the Victor. Over one hundred pounds of cabernet franc grapes were crushed on site and added directly to the mash. In addition to a generous portion of Pilsner malt, Victor is hopped with Fuggles and Hallertau and fermented with a wine yeast strain. With a focus on the subtle wine-like character of the grapes, the 9.0% ABV brew maintains a copper color, wine yeast influence and a medium body with a tart and spicy finish.

Color is a amber, orange, red, and copper mixture with a little bit of clearness. Pours a two finger bubby head. Aroma has a lot of bright fruit and a sweet and dry malt. Lots of that dry, bright fruity taste upfront which transitions to a slightly tart/dry cracker finish. Lots of carbonation in this and medium in body. Overall, if the price tag of $20 bucks wasn't so ridiculous I'd definitely get this again. Nice fruity red grape flavors balanced by a dry and slighty tart finish. Definitely worth a try even for those who don't like fruitier beer since its so balanced.

On tap at Cask and Vine while enjoying the company of Todd the Hoople.
Lightly hazy deep straw with hints of purple. Fruity earthy spicy aromas and flavor with a bit of a jelly or jam edge to it. Interesting brew a bit outside of the box, not something I'd have often but glad I got to try it.
