From Cervezalandia. In Teku glass. Playing Gunman Clive. The wood notes are very subtle, hard to find, but the grapes profile is really notorious and pleasant

Poured from a bottle from the basement, into a stem tulip glass.
A - Marauding carbonation slices through a copper backdrop to pile miles high into a heavens reaching froth of off white.
S - Warm wet cedar, spiced with cinnamon, dark maple and warm honey, red grape skin, broad leaf tobacco and finally crushed walnut. Amazing.
T - Varies widely from the nose, wheat toast spread with late blossom honey to start, then musk melon, mashed with red wheat, overripe plum and finally a touch of pressed apple skin.
F - Medium in body, that carbonation is relentless, you that person, we all know that person relentlessly trying and in the end just fine. The palate is struck with a bit of sweet grains and autumnal reminders. Oranges and browns with a refined welcome.
O - This bottle was aged, and for that I am glad, with time the honey notes darkened, the base malts are spot on, with just enough bitterness to show the craft of the brewer. This is the last of the Sinners Series for me and I am glad to have postponed the Wrath.
Worth seeking out

I would agree with most of what is said in the previous reviews. I really enjoyed this beer. The woodiness and grassiness was unique I felt. The wood is not your typical oak either. Interesting and pleasant. Many faint background flavors to explore in this one. We have such high taxation on imported alcohol in Thailand however, that I won't be eagerly reaching for this one again, a bit too expensive. At 30% cheaper, yes then, I would.

Appearance: Clear, golden honey color, with large bubbles in the head, and specks of lacing left on the glass.

Aroma: Grainy, biscuity, wheaty aroma, with bright, fruity notes of green apple and white grape, like champagne.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Flavor on the tongue is very grainy, like wheat toast, with a sharp, bright flavor of tart white grape, and Granny Smith apples present as well. The finish sees the profile moving away from the fruity sweetness, and more towards a grainy, toasty, biscuity malt finish. Bridging the gap are the flavors of oak, and wood spice, like clove, which lent it a bit of an anesthetic flavor/texture on the tongue, like an Orajel sensation. The medium body keeps this one from feeling too dry.

Final Word: I really enjoyed the tart fruit flavors in this beer, and feel that the Pinot Noir barrel aging comes through in a very true way; the spicy wood and sparkly white grape flavors are very much in balance with the other elements of the beer. Yes, I know that Pinot Noir is a red grape (thanks to a just-in-case Google search I did 3 minutes ago), but the character of the fruit flavor in this beer is brighter, more tart, and lighter bodied than a red grape or red wine, lending an impression of white grape, Granny Smith apple, and lemon to the whole experience. While drinking this beer, I kept noticing how raw all of the ingredients tasted, and how wild and true they felt. The spiciness was very earthy, and woody; the malt flavors very rough, with a lot of the husk coming through; and the fruit notes juicy, and bright. While I really enjoyed the authenticity of what I was tasting, especially considering how many breweries resort to "natural flavor" additives, it also made for a more challenging drinking experience. You think you like spice, but their character in this beer is much more earthy and bitter, like the difference between cinnamon bark and cinnamon sugar. I found the anesthetic/Orajel flavor and sensation to be a bit distracting, even though it didn't overwhelm or ruin the experience. I'd recommend that everyone try this at least once, and definitely snatch this one up if you like oaky, spicy wine. Pick something else if you just really aren't in the mood for anything challenging, and would rather have something easy drinking instead.

Bottle: Poured a hazy beige color ale with a large foamy head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of vinous tart notes with light fruity ester and easily discernable rustic malt is quite interesting. Taste is also dominated by vinous tart notes with rustic malt notes and some light fruity ester. Wine barrel is more prevalent then I was expecting though based beer is solid enough to sustain it. Body is quite full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Solid offering!

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at mrbubbler's tasting.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, yeast, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, caramel, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice mix of malt, caramel, and spice all around.

Serving type: bottle.
