On tap at Tasty. Not my favourite, but somewhat interesting. Pours a dirty brown with red hues. Somewhat sour Belgian notes at the front. Too much barrel in there for me. Complex and some funk. Apple and sour cherry come through. Finish is a bit strange to me- almost sweet amongst the sour notes. Had it after Midnight Brett (Allagash) so doesn’t really compare. But interesting nonetheless.

Tap @ Binny’s LP Tasting Room, tulip: Pours a ruddy reddish brown with a small but lasting head and okay lace. Interesting wild ale that shows its Abbey Ale roots making it lean towards a big Flemish Sour. Like the oak and lactic acid bite but nicely balanced by the Dubble and Tripel malt base. Hints of both dark and tart cherries and other pitty fruits. I quite liked this.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2014 A blend of both Brother David’s Double and Triple ales aged in port barrels with house bacterial culture. This marriage of Belgian flavors results in a beer that is very tart and fruity, with a sweet malty backbone and a moderate sourness.
On tap at PreFunk.. Had this a couple times now... It is interesting that it comes out with a bigger sour twang... light phenolic notes show as clove with some background peppercorn.. light apple/pear esters combine with some residual pale maltiness... But the lactic sour punch hits home from the front to the back... Pretty boozy.. a gentle tulip is plenty. Grand Cru?? Would love to see this one in bottles. Pretty vinous with warmth... Very tasty, but a smaller glass is a thinker and a 22 would be too much.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a dark brown color with reddish highlights and a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma has a nice tart /sour quality, apples, dates and a touch of chocolate. The flavor opens tart, but gets increasingly sour. Mild sour apple, dark fruit, cherry, fig, a touch of chocolate and wood. The flavor does fade at the end. Looks more porter or stout like.

Draft at Caves in Corvallis. Pours a rich red color with a good head. Faint aroma of currants. Little warming, with a surprisingly smooth mouth feel considering the big head Overall, I enjoyed a really nice balance between the barrels and the beer itself, funky but not overly so...
