Overall I think this was a pretty good more tart American Wild Ale

Look: Red-purple hue with a very thin quickly disappearing white head

Aroma: cran-grape, wine

Taste: The flavor is red wine, grapes, cranberry, it's quite tart, no hint of the alcohol.

Feel: It is light and easy drinking.

Purple and red fruit juicy. Cranberries on the nose and it follows through with cranberry and raspberry tartness with a slight creamy milkwheat. Vineous notes come through with a pinot noir rose. Tart, dry, crisp and salty.

Pours a dark red, nearly mahogany with ruby highlights, and no head to speak of. Smells very acetic with an underlying aroma of dark musty fruit.

The taste has a sharp acetic stinger up front with notes of sour apple and cherry underneath. The mouth feel is relatively light, considering the ABV, and the carbonation was on the lower end.

A very good example of the up and coming "American Wild Ale" style, though from an Italian brewer in this case.

12.7 oz bottle poured into tulip
(brewed in 2014 on label)

L: very flat-looking pour, looks more like wine than beer; no head forms, just a skin of big, airy bubbles that disappear quickly; clear crimson, brilliant up to light, almost purple ... deep dark red

S: fingernail polish, tart grapes, oak ... as it warms, has a slight sweetness to it, but still mostly sour, lemons; more sweetness shows as it continues to warm, not quite a sweet wine but a wine aroma with all the alcohol sting taken out

T: tart grapes, sweet kumquats, fingernail polish, lemon ... has a super earthy backbite, dirt, oak; as it warms, the grapes sweeten just a bit, though that "sour" fingernail polish flavor is never far away

F: super light, watery, easy to drink ... has the slightest bit of carbonation to it that helps fill it out a bit, but it's very watery

O: very similar to a dry wine, sour grapes being the dominant note ... the 8% ABV is hidden to the point of disbelief -- the beer comes off like a 3% table beer, it's so light and watery; a solid "sour" that toes the line between wine and beer

4 oz pour on tap

A: dark amber body hazy almost no head

S: lots of grapes apples and vinegar

T: the grapes really hit your tongue hard and then you get the vinegar but not a lot of the bite. Then it ends with a musty grainy yeasty taste almost a cereal

M: medium feel low carbonation

O: very tasty beer but not tart as I was expecting very easy drinking very impressed with the grapes.
