A: Dark copper color, white head.

S: Dark cab notes in the nose as well as some dark fruit.

T: Cabernet-like flavors of red grape, but sour, and heavy. It definitely picks up the wine profile form the barrels, but the dark fruit from the beer style shines through, along with oak and the combination is wonderful.

M: Medium-full bodied, light carbonation, but a bit astringent.

O: Pretty much what you'd expect given the style of the beer, the style of the wine barrels, the talent of the brewers and the addition of wild yeast. It's delicious.
