3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light brown in color.... Aroma is light caramel malts, acidic notes... Flavor is fairly sour up front, gives way to a more nutty, roasted malt backbone with notes of coffee bitterness on the palate... Very complex and a different experience throughout, really enjoyed this...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampler at the tasting room. Mahagony color. Aroma is mostly sour grape. Flavor starts with nice malty amber/red caramel notes and transitions into a nice sourness with some buttering hops on the finish. I found this to be a very pleasant combination.

16 ounce sample on tap at mojos in Woodland. The aroma on this is lightly tart, and mostly dominated by some pine character. Light fruitiness, too. Fairly transparent ruddy amber body with a medium off white head. Pretty resilient. Starts with a little sweet flavors, before this has some gentle woody character, and a nice soft balanced tart funkiness. This is spot on for the quasi style, and is severely underrated.

On tap at Tap and Mallet. Why did I pick this one today? Of all the good beers they had there. Cause I wanted something different. Next time I’ll go with something that tastes good. Sour aroma and flavor. A jumble of dried fruits. No head, no lacing

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Capones, pours a hazy amber color, thick medium creamy head, and awesome streaks of lacing. Aromas of red and white wine, some apple brandy, wet wood, basement funky yeast, fruity hops and cheese notes from the nelson. Taste is woody and sour with some bourbon and rich brandy in the finish. Other notes of pinot noir, dark fruit, sour grapes, and apple. Interesting beer, hard to drink alot of it but better then previous ratings.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Bocktown Robinson. Meh...probably on par with what I expected. Aroma was caramel with just a hint of stale malt.Pour was a light brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was a little disappointing. The roasted caramel malt was the main flavor with a slight vinegary aftertaste. Mouth feel was very thin and there was barely any finish. Light carbonation.
