3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours deep copper with no head. Aroma of sourness/tartness, some funky notes, oak and wine, some fruits, and pale/caramel malts. Flavor the same with a great blend of the sourness, oak, and fruits. Would have a better texture if there was more carbonation. A good sour ale, but the carbonation lacking sort of hurts it.

On tap at BeerTemple. Clear dark gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is quite lactic, plain yogurt, oak, light lemony aromas. Taste is sour, quite lactic, oaky, slightly puckering. Palate is dry, light carbonation but mineral dryness contributes to giving it a spritzy sensation. Pretty good.

Pours a murky hazed amber with ruby notes. from bottle. Shelf turd. Aromas of some yogurt sourness and a pretty big slab of wood. Taste is pretty two dimensional - wood and lactic sourness. Not much dark druit to speak of. Not much of anything. Not even very tart. No barnyard, no funk. Just wood, wood and a dose of sour milk. Pretty tame.
