Pours a dark amber with a small foam head that recedes almost immediately, leaving a thin, uneven white head with lacing around the edges.

Not much going on in the aroma. Grape is most noticeable. Raspberry.

Taste follows the nose. Grape comes on rather strong. Really has more of a grape juice/red wine taste to it. A little bit of cherry, possibly some fig. Some light malty notes. A little bit of sourness. Honestly there's just very little going on in the taste here.

Medium bodied. Good carbonation. Goes down a bit sticky, but easily downable.

An interesting brew by DFH, but not one of their better ones. Worth a try, but not worth revisiting.

Reddish pour with little head. Some citrus and vino in the nose. Mild bitterness, with wine notes in the front. Not very notable finish - could be a little crisper/cleaner. It's okay.

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.
