A: medium brown reddish color with a light creamy colored head unfiltered and full bodied look.
S: so many aromas...black licorice, raspberry, currant, Belgian like yeast, and the sourness comes in the back of the nose.
T: a sour raspberry cocoa blend a bit of nuttiness and like banana at the end.
M/D: crisp and dry like a fine wine never had that from a beer. All this blends together well and creates one very drinkable beer.

Served on tap at the Russian River Brewpub into a snifter
A- Poured an opaque dark brown with ruby highlights with no head, but tiny carbonation bubbles around the top.
S- The aroma was very strong of a cabernet, it was pretty surprising at first, I did not expect the cabernet aroma to be some prominent. Also a nice sweet cherry aroma
T- Strong cabernet taste, strong very sour cherry taste, and dark fruit, and vinegar acidic notes
M- High acidity and very high carbonation, my tongue was in heaven
O- This beer is unlike anything I have had before. The wine characteristics were so prominent and the sourness and acidity of the beer made this a very tasty and memorable beer. This is the first beer my wife has ever enjoyed too, so I was pretty impressed.
Serving type: on-tap
