Pours murky copper with a fading head.

Massively acidic flavours, with supporting cherry/marzipan sweetness, faint lemon and oak.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours a hazy brownish Amber with a large khaki head. Aroma of oak, vinous, Brett, light tart cherry. Taste is very sour, vineager, oak, wild yeasts, light tart cherry. On par with many Kriek style beers, but lacking complexity or originality.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
appearance: coppery red, hazy, with a short, fizzy light tan head that vanishes quickly. aroma: sour cherry and raspberry, fairly astringent on the nose, with some woody notes and balsamic vinegar. taste: bitingly tart and sour, with cherry, raspberry, general stone fruit (mostly underripe), with a bit of oak and a ton of vinegar. finish: lingering tartness, more sour as it warms, also a little bitter, with lasting astringency. notes: I like my sours a little less, um, angry. This was aggressively sour and astringent. Bottle from Sarah for Beerdvent 2015.

Almanac tap takeover at PreFunk Nampa hazy brown with a small light tan head. Woody and earthy sour tartness. I found it fairly aggressive in the sour character and the wood/barrel aging is apparent.
