Thanks to Joe for this bottle! Poured from a Batch 1 375ml bottle into a Russian River "TION" glass (so I like to call it).

A: Reddish-brown with no head, but just enough bubbles to keep you intrigued.

S: A wonderful array of horse blanket, wild yeast, leather, funk, and burnt ciabatta bread. The beautiful grapes come out more as the beer warms up.

T: Musky grapes with a wine-like gentle sourness. A little lemon and grapefruit zest don't add as much to the flavor as they do to acetic character. A leathery aspect comes through next with a tart finish not too far behind.

M: Puckering with a dry wine-like finish. Just a touch of carbonation so as to not get in the way of the flavor profile.

D: Perfect for an aperitif. I really wish I had some nice cheese to pair with this.

Overall, this beer was not rated #1 by Wine Enthusiast in 2009 for no reason.
