3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml. bottle sampled @ Barley Legal Tasting Room. Procured from Hopduvel. GUSHER. Pours dark brown with a tanned head that fills the whole glass & instantly overflows. Huge red wine everywhere, tannic & red grape wine everywhere, quite sour, roasted oak, lactic somewhere in the back, lots of glue, light paint chemicals, very high carb. Responses were unanimously negative but I did quite like it.

Bottle shared by Joes @ weekly tasting. Gusher. Brown color with a red glare coming through, quickly diminishing tan head. Smell glue and paint. Taste lightly malts, a bit sourish, sharp, quite harsh. Infected? Fizzy carbonation, medium body. No, don’t like it at all.

Pour @BBF 02/2014, ZO (M). Pours a murky, flat dark pink, giving off little aroma considering its potential 10% fumicity. Basically Gouden Band as seen through a heavy Alvinne monoprism of sour vinosity, i.e. minus the typical Oud Bruin wood complexity, and ironically enhancing drinkability - indeed, for a sour at 10% no small feat.

Bit of a slow gusher. Murky dark brown beer, good tan head. Nose is sharp Flemish sourness and a touch of glue. Palate is airy and light with fine carbonation. Taste follows the nose and adds balsamic vinegar sharpness. A touch of dark chocolate, well buried. Crisp finish. Overall to sharp and gluey for me.
