4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted on 11/16/13 from a capped 12oz bottle at our Avery Barrel-Aged tasting. Pours hazy bright orange with a thin off-white head that leaves thin lace. The nose is super funky with some brown sugar malt, white wine vinegar, and just a touch of cinnamon oak. The flavor is more sour with all of the same white wine vinegar, with brown sugar malt and cinnamon oak balancing. The body is medium and tannic with light carbonation and a very long sour and lightly oaky finish.

White wine and green grape smell. DELICIOUS sour, white wine, grape juice, and peach taste. Easily one of the best tasting sours I’ve ever had.

Acquired in trade as an extra, years ago. Very strange beer with lots of different -bal flavors going on, some sweetness, a hint of vanilla, a little spicy, fruity, crazy beer overall, frenetic but good.

Bottle thanks to Tom. Pours a cloudy copper with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong funk and sour fruit, oak. Thin mouthfeel with tart cherry and light lactic acid, oak, easy to drink, very good.

12 oz. bottle. Rating from notes. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is tart with lemon, barnyard, and wet oak notes. Touches of barrel, some cabernet notes. Flavor is funk and dry, lots of tart and vinous notes, some umami and wine sweetness. There are touches of sour, lots of barrel character. Medium bodied with a slick texture, finishes somewhat lactic. Nice beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
All of the first 10 from the series were shared by craftbeerdesign. Best of the bunch in my opinion. Partily clear orange with some floaties. Funky, barnyard nose, tart berries. Taste is very tart, big tannic, funky, barnyard. The most wild/funky of the bunch which maybe why this was the clear winner for me. Just awesome stuff here.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle, sent from aplusbreaks (thanks a lot, Austin), pours a cloudy, murky rusted red with a small beige head. Nose is barrel heavy, with loads of red wine, white wine, port, and sour berries Flavour is very complex, characterized by pronounced dryness and wildness, with loads of dry red and white wine barrels above all; there’s a feint nail polish quality too that’s not necessarily bad, with medium tartness. Very complex and well-designed blend here. Excellent.
