3.68/5 rDev -5.4%
2013 Vintage. Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is a muddled, rose-tinged copper coloring with a bubbly, frothy, off-white head that sits a consistent half an inch on the surface. Aromas of semisweet fruity notes, like a Blush or Rose wine. Some subtle spice highlights, as well. Subtle nose. Flavors are well blended, with a rich, tangy sweet grape profile. Highlights of earth and wood throughout, with a tartness that underlies it all. The carbonation and crisp body keep this brew light in mouth while you drink. Slightly boozy berry and grape aftertaste, with hints of clove and all spice. The beer has an effervescent, slightly dry finish. Tasty brew, and surprisingly easy to drink.

3.85/5 rDev -1%
750ml bottle. 2012 vintage. Served in the DFH signature glass
Appearance: Pours a murky gold/orange color with 2 fingers of a creamy off white head. Great retention and lacing. Body is very hazy with lots of visible carbonation streaming throughout.
Smell: Red grape, floral, bready malt and some light yeast spice.
Taste: Vinous grape, apple, spice, fruity esters.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, medium/high carbonation. Slightly tart and dry finish.
Overall: It's a solid belgian pale and the grapes do add some additional complexity. Pretty good stuff, though not quite worth the high price tag.

4/5 rDev +2.8%
A: poured into an oversize wine glass to a deep orange with slight red tint and a finger of dense slightly off white head that is slow to fade
S: smells of yeast with a slight fruitiness and a bit of pale malt. slightest hint of grape jelly as well
T: slightly musty malt flavor up front with a bit of flavor from the grapes and some fruity esters. slightly spicy. finish is slightly funky with a bit more grape and fruitiness with a bit of noble hop on the finish, slightly tart as well on the finish
M: medium in the mouth with soft carbonation from bottle conditioning. carbonation is adequate. slightly drying on the finish
O: pretty good, steep in price for not being barrel aged. I remember last years version a bit more favorably but this one isn't bad. good complexity and it's something different
