Can see where this is a love/hate. Not much going on in the aroma for me, maybe a whiff of grape. Attractive orange color with thick head on pour. The apparent ;lack of aroma lead to a surprise in the taste - wasn't expecting much. Somewhat sweet, a little thick on the mouth feel. Can taste the wine notes/grapes for sure, but some nice citrusy notes to balance it off. Sweet but not heavily so - some warmth from the alcohol. Thought this was well-balanced overall. It was a great change of pace and would probably go great with a cheese/meat plate or as a meal accompaniment. Kind of thoughtful tasting if that makes any sense - tasted it and went "hmmm" or said "interesting" several times during consumption.

Pours a nearly opaque pumpkin orange with a dense white head. I get lots of spices in the nose up front. Allspice, orange peel, peppercorn, sweet fruit juice, and a bit of thyme or other light spices. No real hops, but it could have contributed to the light spice aroma. Malt seems light. Orange flavor with allspice is the dominant flavor. I also get lemon, some of the citrus acidity some of the wine is evident in the muscat grape flavor, oak is also present, but only slightly. The orange peel mixes with an herbal, flowery, nectar hop flavor. Definitely used noble hops. Feel is very balanced, hats off for doing that with a 10% ABV. Finish is dry.

This is a very drinkable beer with many facets. Although I may not like all the facets presented, it's still a pretty good beer.

When i poured this beer, it has a nice honey colored body with a nice 2 finger head that hangs out for a couple of minutes until it lays down to a thin lace. The smell has some belgium yeast and a wine/grapes smell to it. The taste has wine/grape taste up front, also i get a little spice of coriander and some citrus closer to the back of the tonuge. Some dark fruits are present also.. It defently has a very complex taste on your taste buds. The mouth feel is good,very nice carobonation and is a little heavy but not to heavy though and overall i'm not a big fan of wne flavored beers, but this one is really good and i think it is at least worth trying once.
