3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml corked bottle. Sour aroma with fruity notes, like cherry. Pours very dark brown with a thin, short-lived off white head and some lacing. Taste is sweet fruit with cherry notes and a lively, vinous mouthfeel. Lots of carbonation in this one. Finishes quite sour with the vinous flavor and mouthfeel lingering on the palate long after a sip. Nice, complex sour.

750 ml bottle to taster. Looks good; a airly transparent dark amberish brown with light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes good too; malty and funky with notes of cherry, grape, oak, brett, and oak. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant mouthfeel. Great beer!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Shared with Brian. Awesome dark red to brown pour with a fairly clear body. Small one finger head didn’t last long in a tulip. Some mild lacing. Aroma of sour cherries, apples, pears, plums. The taste was a complexity of sour dark cherries, apples, turned prunes, brett yeasts, booze, oak barrel and light spice. Thin body, medium to light carb. Tart, but not overly, finish. Very good.
