Bottled beer served in a glass.

Appearance -
Pours a thin, lasting tan coloured head, and presents a cloudy red-amber colour - a hint of wine is evident. Lively effervescence. Plenty of lacing. Some sediment.

Smell -
Oak, grandpa's homemade red wine, roasted malts, red cabbage, sour cherry, methylated spirits.

Taste -
Sour cherry, a slight hint of alcohol, earthy Shiraz, oak barrel aged whiskey, dried fruits. Very sour.

Mouthfeel -
Slight effervescence, not overly carbonated. Moderate body, creamy smoothness, clean and refreshing. Quite sour so slower drinking.

Overall -
Very interesting beer and lots of complexity to explore. There are very strong whiskey and wine flavours in this brew, and lots of fruitiness which makes for a very enjoyable drink. Despite the sourness, and slightly dodgy smell, it was a very enjoyable drink.
