4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle a bit of a gusher but not an issue - pours a deep chestnut brown with an off white head. I get a lot of fruity Pinot notes both on the nose and palate. Oak, fig, leather, combined with a perfect tartness, nice carbonation, medium bodied, more Pinot notes, freaking delicious.

Bottle, shared with Grippitis. Dark brown, lively light brown head. Lots of brown bread with roasty and vinous notes, some subtle funk too. Dark cherry fruit lingers. Nice depth of complexity, really tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma is an odd mix of red wine, coffee, dark bread and light nail polish. Tastes like a mix of bread, red wine and mild coffee. Odd but still is solid. Not something I’d drink often though.

Sample at Crafted Drafts during the "Anchorage Sour Tasting" on 08/14/2016. The beer pours a clear dark brown color with a medium thick light beige head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of dark fruit, oak and funky yeast. Medium body with flavors of brett yeast, oak, red fruits and malt. The finish is vinous oak and yeast. Pretty good all around.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty good but not great. Dark with minimal head. Nose is tart and woody. Plums in the nose too. Very tart initial taste and feel. Dry barrel notes are next. Nice complex finish is the best with this. Ends with some malty and dry notes.
