The beer pours a hazy dirty amber and dark dried apricot in color. There is a half-inch of fizzing off-white to very light tan head. The aroma is tangy, fruity, malty, vinous. There is caramel, dark fruits, and light wine. The taste is rich, sweet, malty, but with a dry finish. There is much caramel, along with dark fruits. The taste is bright and refreshing. The beer drinks with a fine, intense, refreshing carbonation. There is a light vinous note in the aftertaste. This is very enjoyable.
