3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to nate321 for this bottle! Pours a dark red with a small beige rim on top that leaves somewhat good lacing. Nose is of light acetone, oak, wine, moderate vinegar and light cheese. Taste is of balsamic vinegar like it should but also incredibly oaky. Grapes, cherries and light spirits (must be the cognac) make up the rest of the flavors. Both body and carbonation were medium and acidity level is moderate and refreshing. Easy drinking enough. Overall a good but not great Flanders-style ale.

Wow. Just wow. Got fer my lady for her 27th. Drank at Prosperity. You couldn’t pair two more of my new favorite breweries, and then they pair up, and create this beautiful monster. I mean, this beauty had cognac dripped elements of sour barnyard funk blowing up at you, but politely for fuck’s sake! Oh by the way, this is rating................1600!!!!

Pours very dark brown with a low tan head. Aromas of cherries, funk, almond, roasted oak, plum, slight sherry notes. Taste is cherries, funk, almond, plum, slight vanilla and plum notes. Mouthfeel is quite astringent yet very smooth with soft carbonation. Very very good!

Quite excellent. Fruity with a hint of sweetness, touch of cognac, finish is tart but certainly not overwhelming. Kinda has a blackberry thing going on. One of the best dark American sours I’ve had.

Corked and caged 750 ml bottle from Tipples. Pours brown with a half finger khaki colored head. Aroma of green apples, wood, balsamic, some interesting booze notes, twigs and leaves and vegetal notes. Interesting I guess but a little strange. Flavor is light sour black cherries with a hefty bit of dry oakiness, some booze that I assume is the cognac, and a lingering mellow cherry apple vanilla flavor left on the palate. Fruity notes begin coming out from the cognac with additional sips. Medium plus mouthfeel for a sour, with low carbonation--but not flat by any means. A very good sour in the red/brown style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light muddy brown, etched thin bubbled ring. Stewed peaches and boozy burnt toffee apple. Itchy yeast vibe, terse sweetness throughout cuts through the sourness. Rich and patient woodyness throughout spreads the bretty dusting. Finishes really raking tart and cherry. Linger is surprisingly clean.
Bottle, Fancy Al Fresco Tasting, Cheers BenHhhhh

Dark reddish brown pour with a light tan pour with a sour and fruity tart aroma. Damn funky with a nice sour flavor profile. Tasty as hell!
