Bottle shared at Churchkey. Thanks everyone! Amazing beer.... (can I stop my review right there). Anyway... Poured a beautiful looking dark orange color with a small foamy white head. Aroma was notes of wonderful funk - touch of balsamic, citrus and stone fruits. Nectarines, plum, apricot - with some acidic grapefruit character. Flavor had all those wonderful notes - tartness that hit all the right spots in the mouth, plenty of tangerine, light mango character - seriously, probably the best beer I’ve had this year.

Bottle: The aroma consists of cola sour cherries, light lemon, vinegar, faint dark fruit, and vinous notes. It pours a transparent orangish-brown with a minimal beige head that quickly fades to a minimal film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of cola and a touch of vinegar. The finish has light sour cherries, lemon, oak, dark fruit, cognac, and oak. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and somewhat thin mouthfeel.

Brown pour with a white head. The aroma has some toffee up front with some grapes and a bit of tartness thrown in. The flavor is also very nice. I get some grapes and orange notes as well as some light tartness. As the beer warms I start to get some oak and cognac notes. The fruit is very juicy and goes well with the tart notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Awesome beer.

Bottle. Pours clear ruby mahogany - beautiful. Small beige head that dissipates fairly quickly with good lacing in its wake. Aroma is very vinous, red wine, some Brett, oak, lemons, tart cherries. Flavor is initially lightly sweet, drying out quickly to a light tartness with just a touch of funk. Lots of oaky, vinous notes - I would swear this was a red wine and not a cognac treatment. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Very very nice beer.
