Wow. What a fantastic beer. Enjoyed with a salmon salad lunch, and this was by far the star of the show. Immediately, the ruby color had me excited. Normally I am not a fan of sour beers, this was traded to me. Wine was strong on the nose, great smell. Tasted and felt amazing. Absolutely does not drink like 10%, very well crafted. I will always be searching this beer out.

Just outstanding. Bottle dated 11-4-14 poured into HF stem glasses. Smell is red wine dominated, with oak and a hint of sourness making an appearance. Taste is incredible, like a sour, carbonated red wine. I received both this and Supplication together in a trade, and I actually preferred this. My "desert island" sour.

A special occasion beer. Delicious. Wonderful on tap. I think better bottled with age.
