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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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...

On tap. Little khaki head around the edge, with a thin webbing over the surface, leaving some loose lace. Mostly clear but very dark red / brown color. Great light sour, tart taste. Not overwhelming, makes it refreshing. Light, crisp carbonation, more dry finish. Great, long aftertaste. Aromas of vinous grape, dark fruit, light wood, other things I wish I could pinpoint. Tasty all the way through.
