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.

Nose: interesting blend of spice, light malts, grapes and a suggestion of Brett - probably from the wine yeasts.
Pours hazy reddish amber under a 1" very finely bubbled rose tinted white foam cap. Thick clingy lace. Some legs.
A blend of light grain malts, light red wine, lightly sweet, slight funk with a tart finish and a gentle hop bitter accent.
Medium body, above average carbonation, slight warming.
