corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy, dark golden copper color with apricot colored edges and a half finger foam head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind. Strong lactic funk in the aroma along with some damp oak, peppery spice and vinous dark fruit. Nice combination of red wine barrel and lactic cheesiness from the Morpheus yeast. Subtle toothpick and dry oak along with dark grape, cherry, currant and other dark berries. Nice barrel presence but the blonde ale notes are undetectable and the lactic presence is much stronger than expected. Not unpleasant, jut a really weird scent mixed with the Bordeaux barrel. Tart and puckering with sour acidity, lactic funk and a very prominent vinous red wine barrel. Subtle acetic vinegar presence but not solvent like at all. Has the tart dryness of Kriek but not as sour/acidic. The sourness is countered by funky lactic cheesiness but this isn’t as strong as in the aroma. The Bordeaux barrel flavors really stand out adding sweetness and complexity. The barrel is subtle with a touch of oak and vanilla but it’s bursting with vinous, juicy dark grape, sour cherry, plum and other dark berries. Kind of like a mix of rodenbach grand cru, red wine barrel aged American wild and Belgian Oude Kriek. I wasn’t expecting much going in but this beer really surprised me with it’s complexity. Sour but not harsh with really great barrel flavors.

NikkTwist (2666) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle at Eulogy. Hazy deep gold pour with a small fizzy/foamy beige head. Perfect aroma for a barrel aged sour - exactly what you want! Fresh oak barrel notes. Fairly tart. Amber fruit. Hints of peach, apricot, nectarine and green grapes. Honeycomb. Cider vinegar. Chardonnay. Finishes mostly dry. Tastes great. Wonder why this is not rating higher.

Looks.. Orange blonde, little to no head. Smells.. Tart orange/mandarin fruitiness, oak and vanilla, a bit yeasty too. Tastes..wonderfully sour, fruity tart orange berry, balsamic, nice and puckery... some of the alvinne morpheus yeasty action, some dry oak & woody vanilla to finish.
