On-tap 7/9/13 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a tulip glass.
A: The beer is a light brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains Belgian yeast, caramelized malts, apples, grapes, brown sugar and a touch of hops.
T: The taste starts out very sweet with flavors of caramel, grapes, apples, brown sugar. Then some mild breadiness comes in from some mildly wild Belgian yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re into beers with wine-like attributes.

Th beer pours a white but slightly reddish head. The head does not stay for long and sort of dissipates quicker than its feminine counterpart. The beer itself is also darker. The beer is a dark red with hints of brown that are reminiscent of a red.
The beer has a strong red grape smell that masked by the yeast and spices.
The beer is definitely sour. The pilsner malts are present but compliment the red grapes very well. The red grapes seem to give it a sour taste and a sugary sweet taste. The beer leaves a tarty aftertaste.
Heavy bodied with very little carbonation. The beer leaves a slightly dry aftertaste.
Certainly different from the Victoria but I would probably get this beer again when it's available but I won't be running over people to do so.
