The appearance would include the most gorgeous bottle I've ever seen. For the ale it's a very well presented brown to dark amber with loads of carbonation that stacks as high as you want to pour it. The bubbly head sits on top as a frothy mass.
Wine like qualities hit the nose with a soft alcohol aroma. Grape, must, prune, date and vinegar-like aromas hit the nose in a supremely well blended scent.
The taste has a lot of vinous grape, must and sweetness. I don't get as much fruit as I got in the scent but this is very well constructed and just good to drink.
The feel is very airy, which makes sense as there's loads of carbonation but it gives a real champagne like feel. The throat and chest are filled with air which descends to the stomach, begging you to drink slowly.
