deep red color with little transparency. Nice funk in the nose with slight hints of the oak barrels. tartness is nicely balanced. just a wee bit to carbonated for my liking, but not holding that against it. Crisper than i thought it would be.

A-Pours rusty burnished orange with a thin khaki head. No lacing.

S-Vinous tartness. Musty old wine barrels, watered down balsamic vinegar.

T/M-Vinous tartness on the tip of the tongue, but it fades almost instantly into fizzy carbonation driven bready malt sweetness. A thin line of white wine grape acidity carries through to the finish. Medium bodied.

O-Way too expensive for what it is. Just okay.

With Freisa grapes must.
Red color, quite dark and hazy. Almost no foam.
In the smell strong notes of grapes. Interesting. Raspberry notes. Even wood, and probably a bit of oxidation.
Same notes at the taste. Grapes, must. Very peculiar and interesting. Touch of lemon, a bit of astringency.
Maybe just a bit too sweet, but pleasant and interesting.
Raspberry, strawberry, berry fruit.

Shared this beer with Galengeueze courtesy of Matt from Capones in Philly. Poured into a tulip.
Poured a hazy reddish brown with a minimal head that quickly faded leaving no lacing.
Smell was tart with funk noted as well as grapes, oak, and vinegar.
Taste was that of cherries, oak and sour, although somewhat watered down. A subtle bitterness noticed in the finish.
Mouthfeel was tart, dry, and slightly acidic, with very minimal carbonation noted, almost like drinking a wine as opposed to a beer.
Overall this was a very interesting beer although it does not quite live up to its Belgian cousins or the wild American ales like Russian River. For the price (20 dollars for an 11 oz bottle) I would take Cantillon or RR over this any day.

On tap for the 2012 Peter Reeves Memorial Sourfest at Churchill’s Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.

Pours a clear orange-brown with a foamy beige head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with some berry, grape, wine, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with a woody finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and drinkable.
