4.28/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Batch 7 bottle, corked and caged, poured into a snifter.
A- Pours a clear dark reddish color. About a finger's worth of white head forms but quickly disappears. Foam lingers along the rim of the glass. It appears very carbonated and bubbly, there is a bubble volcano type thing going on in the top center of the glass.
S- Smells like wine basically, with the smell of alcohol. I smell hints of grapes and berries too.
T- Tastes of unripened grapes and cherries. The sour taste comes toward the end, which is very refreshing and not overpowering.
M- Light and carbonated, nice aftertaste. Very easy drinking.
This is a style I'm just getting into. This is a great example of an American wild/ sour. The way I can describe it is it's like drinking a glass half full of wine and half beer. A very interesting beer.

4.5/5 rDev +0.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Pours a dark amber, purplish ruby red color; reminiscent of a wine. Nice one finger slightly off-white head, which retains for several seconds or so.
S: Aromas are revealing a vinous, cabernet, wine ratio which is nicely supplemented by funky notes of figs, oak, cherry, plums, brown sugar, lemon, dark fruits and of course accompanied by sourness. The notes/intricacies on this guy are fantastic
T: Sour, tart, and funk are quite prevailing and pleasing. In keeping with the smell, the taste is that of a vinous, wine feel. Notes are that of grapes, raisins, lemon, cherry, slight vinegar, and a woody oak earthiness feel; very similar to the smell
M: Medium to Full body, medium carbonation, lots of sour funk, the presence of wine, and just an overall complex beer
O: Complex and incredible; being extremely well balanced and very smooth make this out to be a superbly refreshing beverage
