Splitted 3-ways, Thanks Sam!
Uncleared light red color, what a beauty!
Nose is delightful as well, mix of sweet apple, grape and red berries, can't stop sniffing
Taste well balanced between tartness and sweetness, you get that fruitiness you had on the nose as well. No doubt on the choice of the beer name!
Overall outstanding beer, would totally like to get it again! One of my favorite Casey I've tasted!

750ml cork and caged bottle, 12/9/2015. Served in a Casey stemmed glass.

Pours a beautiful dark pink body with lighter reddish hue, two finger white head with great retention, effervescence, lacing and film. A stunning appearance. Smells of rich grape must, mild juicy grape, oak, the house funk, wheat, a bit of grain, touch of lactic acid. Flavour is an immeasurably balance of funk, fruit and lactic acidity- it's just mildly acidic but noticeably acidic, with a bit of grape juiciness and plenty of musty grape skin, with a touch of the Casey house funk which isn't too huge. Everything is working in nice harmony here and not one component is too overpowering. A very well done beer. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, crisp and slightly drying, but creamy and very drinkable. As before, it is a balance of sweet fruit and sour, which makes for a nice complexity and drinkability. Overall, another really nice Fruit Stand from Casey, and the CFP version is even more enjoyable as it rachets everything all up a few notches.
