This is a wonderful beer that doesn't fit into a particular standardized category... Dogfish Head did an excellent job pioneering something enjoyable, different, and unique when their competitors haven't

12oz bottle poured into 16oz snifter
"Bottled on 05/22/14 1829"
Tasted on 03/02/15 let's see how this is with some age on it

A – Woah purple! Head is tall and bright white, thins to a cap and leaves clingy patchy lacing behind. Crazy color on this one.

S – Red grape must, floral notes, and quite sweet.

T – Light pale crystal malt notes, hoppy, though it is dominated by notes of grape must, red wine qualities, comes across like a blanc de noirs in some sense.

M – Champagne like again, very light, crisp and effervescent.

O – Crazy and unexpected, wine notes are not overly dominant but are very apparent. Nicely balanced and very good overall.

On tap at DFH Fairfax. Clear copper with purplish thin head. Definitely get the grapes on the nose with some malt and earthy hop character. Some sour grape skin flavor with the typical 60 minute malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Soft carbonation, medium bodied, dry finish.

Decided to purchase a gimmicky beer this weekend. Here goes:

L: Nothing great. Small head that immediately disappears (interesting color, though), no lacing. Raspberry-colored, clear, good carbonation.

S: Good. Grapes, raspberries, some pine from the hops.

T: Just OK. Grapey, cherry flavor; rather spritzy. Some pine and grapefruit from the hops. Kind of funky.

F: Well-carbonated but nothing special.

O: OK beer. Would not purchase again, however.

This stuff is expensive, and not really worth the price. I'm sure the brewing and ingredients are "worth it" but the taste is a little poor. It has a weird color of half amber ale and half pink lemonade. It smells a little medicine-y and sour. Decent mouth feel and body, but the taste is basically an unremarkable IPA with a couple of drops of Robitussin in it. Sorry, not a winner from Dogfish Head. Not undrinkable, and if you put forth some effort it is sort of interesting, but it never rises to being very good.
