- Notes: This is the third use of red wine barrels in the second fermentation.

Pours a beautiful deep ruby color with a medium white head to pink head. A nice nose of sweet and sour cherries, Belgian malts, and barrel aging. The flavor is dominated by red wine dryness and malt and fruit driven sweetness.
