750ml bottle poured into tulip glass 2016 bottle.

A: Very little head that disappears almost as quick as you can pour it. Body is a reddish brown hue with a slight haze more red on the corners than through the middle.

S: blackberries, oak, wine grapes, some light clove and spice

T: nice beautiful wine flavors oak grapes light blackberries plays throughout. Mid palate you hit some honeyed clove and spices then finishes with lots of tannins and some sourness with more blackberries.

M: effervescent bubbly and tingly on the tongue slight cling medium bodied.

O: This beer is fantastic so much depth of flavors really surprised how well the blackberries come out in it. This was worth every penny and if I see it again I'll buy it no hesitation.

In review is a 2012 vintage.

A - Amber red, clear, light floaties, no carbonation, delicate white lacing ring.

S - Pears, white grapes, apple, and all with tangy, fruity acidity.

T - Tart from start to finish. White grapes, green apple, lots of tart tang and funk.

M - Velvety heavy medium body that's puckering.

O - This aged incredibly well.
