Thanks to Vissai for this new beer!

Poured from a bottle into my tulip

A: Great ruby red color with little head that fades quickly.

S: I love the sour aroma with this one. I do get traces of the Cab coming through.

T: Ok the sickly sweet sour notes are fantastic here. This is a great taste for sure with the wine coming in strong on the background.

M: Slight carbonation but this beer masks the high alcohol level for sure.

O: I seriously enjoyed this beer more than I thought it would. After sharing this one with some family, I think I'll come back to this one again soon.
