Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at his tasting.

2014 vintage. F.U.N. Series 010.

Pours a murky dark honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, red wine, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest, red wine, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop and wood 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 solid red wine barrel aged qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.

Serving Type: 22 oz bottle poured into stemmed pilsner (beer tulip) glass.

Appearance: Frothy, pale off-white foam. Fair lacing. Deep, slightly hazy reddish amber hue.

Smell: Full and malty, caramel and berries. Slightly boozy - almost fruitcake?

Taste: Sticky, sweet malt base with fruity wine notes. Dry, bitter finish initially. Oak and wine emerge in finish as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Slightly sticky, smooth and with medium body. Soft to moderate carbonation.

Overall: Big and full, but much mellower than its Rodeo Clown base; much of the hop character recedes to background spice and bitterness. A nice sipper with interesting wine flavors and aromas evolving as it warms.

Notes: F.U.N. Series 010, 2014.

Off white head. Lots of lace. Walls. Color is a clear copper.

Flavor profile: a lot of grapes, tannins, and wine flavors. Very floral and herbal. Grapefruit and citrus. Hop resiny. Caramel malts. A bit of booze as it warms.

Mouthfeel: sticky and bitter. Medium to full bodied. Ends sticky.

Overall, another fun beer from karbach. Hops still present which I really enjoyed. I liked the wine flavors.
