A 500ml bottle purchased shortly after the release at the brewery poured in a Transient pub glass.

Look- Pours a flat looking ruby red and slightly purple color leaving a couple centimeters of off white foam that vanishes almost immediately.

Smell- Band aid, musty wood and grape juice.

Taste- Slightly tart red grapes, mild band aid and oak.

Feel- Thin and quite flat.

Overall- Nothing sophisticated here, just a slightly tart and easy drinking grape flavored wild ale with a hint of oak. If you like them sour and funky this isn't for you. It's a good one for people just jumping into the style. While nothing spectacular, it was decent enough and quite easy drinking to the point that I'd consider buying one more.

Bottle. White head. Caramel amber color.

A bit sour and tart. The grapes show. But a bit acidic. Fruity, a bit funky. Lemon citrus.

Okay sour offering, but I’d rather be drinking a vig. Too much carb here.

A - Pours a dark ruby red with a very thin fizzy white head. The head recedes extremely quick leaving virtually no lacing.

S - Aroma is red grapes, oak, leather and vinegar.

T - The taste is unripe red grapes, lemon peel, lactic acid and oak.

M - Medium body with low carbonation. Soft mouthfeel with a crisp dry finish.

O - Great wild ale. The grapes add a nice sweetness that balances well with the oak & lactic acid. Very enjoyable.

Beautiful deep purple color. Nice grape flavor. Oak, lemon, lactic acid and tart Concord grape jelly. Short, dry finish. Sour but fruit forward. Prickly carbonation. Good stuff.

Drank out of a beer mug at a sushi spot.

Look: Gushed as soon as I opened it, three fingers of quickly dissipating white head, dark red/purple body that looks like raspberry juice, no lacing, lots of quick moving down-up bubbles.

Smell: Sour grape skin, sour bugs, malt vinegar.

Taste: Acetic acid, vibrant fruit forward red wine, a touch of port.

Feel: Heavy end of light bodied, tongue coating.
