look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

bottle into pint glass, paired with steak

appearance: pale yellow/light amber, foamy white head 2 fingers thick, active carbonation

smell: heavy notes of grape, saffron, very odd and unique smelling beer. smells very sweet, with sort of a biscuity malty scent coming out of the bottle.

taste: grape heavy, has some characteristics of red wine, very dry, sweet, a rollercoast of unique flavors. It's very hard to describe, it's almost like a Belgian Strong Ale (tremens/duvel/la chouffe) mixed with a red wine, with elements and the feel of champagne. Goes very VERY well with anything off the grill, I had mixed vegetables and steak.

mouthfeel: high carbonation, medium feel, not too light but certainly not heavy

overall: Probably THE most unique brew i've had, not sure what to think as it's so far out there compared to anything I had, but it was very pleasant and I really enjoyed it. If you like odd and strange beers, this one's for you. Not my favorite DFH, but a very good beer and I love how they're not afraid to try something new. GOes really well with grilled steak, if you like red wine and beer, you will probably find something in this that you will like. Hats off to Sam Caligione.
