On tap at Delaware Supply in Albany, NY.

This pours a dark reddish color, slightly purple, with a small head and no lacing.

This one smells like intense fruit and grape juice, with a sour acidity, cherry, and red wine.

This is a very intense beer. It has a touch of vinegar-y acidity, but the grape flavor is really well done. It's quite sour, but also pretty jammy, with a touch of prickly and vinous red wine here. This is very acidic.

This is medium bodied, with a feel that requires slow sipping, as it's very sour. There's a lower level of carbonation.

This is a very fun beer- it's a great use of a unique grape varietal.

a total recent beer highlight right here, love these italian wild grape ales, one of my most coveted things to drink on these days, and this is a darn good one, lucky enough to find it on tap at bull and bush! its wild sour beer aged in red wine barrels with marzemino grapes, which come from northern italy, but i had not heard of before this beer, and neither had the heady wine shop up the street from my house when i asked them about it. it has a late harvest darkness about it, concentrated fruitiness, almost like an amarone wine, raisin characteristics, red currant tartness, bright cherry and even cranberry acidity as well. its mouthwatering to smell, tannic and oaky, fruity from the wine and the grapes alike, barrel forward and funky, almost lambic-esque for a moment, not much grain pushing through the wine, very mature. the flavor is like that too, more wine than beer aside from the fermentation profile, impressively complex, makes me want to try the wine that these grapes yield really badly. moderate pucker, acidic in the right ways, all seemingly in service of the fruit, which is ahead of any malt in this. nice woodiness to it as well, a musty funk, and a really complex finish. nice carbonation on the feel even though it doesnt hold much head. i finish this one extremely impressed with its intricate nature and fine wine vibes, better than the champagne process pils i had from these guys over the weekend too. one of the best of their beers so far in my experience, i loved this!
