Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Serving: 22 oz. bottle. Medium to dark brown pour. Interesting nose of wood, funk, and berries. Plenty of funk in the flavor with notes of brett, red wine vinegar, wood, and berries. It reminded me of a mix of an Flanders brown and Flanders red in some ways. Interesting and tasty.
