4.25/5 rDev +2.2%
bottle poured into my la chouffe tulip..
a-dirty ruby color..almost but not quite copper...nice one and a half finger off white head that lingered for quite some time...excellent lacing
s-oak..musty...fruits..slight tartness and vinegar...clean yeast aroma
t-woody and fruity up front...followed by slight vinegar and tartness...finishes dry and fluffy...
m-slick..nicely carbonated...medium bodied and soft...
d-a couple a night would be all...the acidity would kill my stomach the next day if i tempted it with more...but i would want to drink this all night
one of the most unique brews ive tried...the wood and tartness really make this one shine...recommended to all

Medium bodied, rich mahogany red color with a moderate off white head.
The aroma is vinous rich ripe fruit with a bit of vinegar tang.
The taste is complex with a rich malt base dominated by fruit flavors - tart cherry, raisin, apple, plums - with an oaky, spicy tone. It starts out tart, then mellows somewhat to a smooth, sweet rich fruit tone then drys out for a funky tart, acidic finish that just makes you want more.
Just a hint of alcohol warmth. Almost more like wine than beer, a fantastic balance of flavors.
This would be a great desert beer but would go well with almost any food, although just sipping it by itself is great.
Very easy to drink and very refreshing. Fantastic stuff. Not for everybody, but give it a try.
