3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle at the Mayor of Oldtown. Appearance: finger of reddish pink white head that does not last, dark copper brown, clear. Aroma: light oak, cherry, light rum sweetness, light caramel. Palate: light body, lively carbonation, dry finish, alcoholic texture. Taste: great tart taste throughout, light cherry sweetness shows through. Overall, very unique, and very solid. Not my favorite sour by any means, but still a great beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark ruby copper with a small off white head and little lacing. Aroma is somewhat tart and sweet with a hint of rum, hints of apple and cherry and some wood. Taste follows nose with tartness and a bit of rum. Woody flavor with tart cherries and some molasses. Mouthfeel is crisp with a medium mouthfeel and high carbonation. A sour ale that has more to it than just tartness and fruit flavors. The barrel aging added nice wood and rum complexities that blended well.

12 oz at my place with Taylor on a Thursday night after picking up the naughty stuff b/c my parents are coming over tomorrow. I think DevnerBeerDrinker extra’d this one, so thank you; that dude is a badass, be sure to trade with him if possible.
Pours dark brown with a red hugh. can’tr see through it.
Aroma is heavy oak, vinigar, dill, light rum, spicy tartness. barrel backbone with distinct tartness.
Taste is tangy tart, cherry, big oak barrel, some booze, soft mouthfeel with acidic tanginess, lacto.
Finish is medium to long and acidic cherries, with chalky oakiness.
Very nice beer, very well made by a barrel aging progam that shows a lot of promise. I look forward to the next one Avery!

Bottled 8-15-13. Brown-red pour with a white head. The aroma is full of rum with some nice oaken notes. The flavor is a strong mix of rum, dark fruit, oak and alcohol, with a bit of tartness thrown in. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle generously shared by Sparky! Burnt tangerine body with hints of scarlet at its depths and a small ivory wisp. The nose isn’t nearly as sour as the flavor where cherry pie filling, lemon zest, vinegar, tart acidity and earthy spice is present. Solid brew.

Bottle pour at fobab. Rusty redish orange color. Slight sour and tart. Touch of metallic flavor. Didnt get any of the rum. Smooth and drinkable. The ABV is hidden very well, does not taste stronger than some of the sours half the strength.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark brownish red color no head. Smells of sour apple, tea, grain, sugar. A fairly strong sour with some good sweetness that ends with some graininess and tea flavors. Pretty bold flavors overall and not too badly balanced. Some rum like flavors are interesting as well.
