Bottle shared by Brad @ Armin’s - thanks! Dark amber pour, clear with almost no head. Slightly sour nose. Sour taste - strongly acetic. Maybe this is lactic and oak? Just ok.

Bottle, shamefully forgot who sent it to me :(. Pours hazy red amber with TONS of floaties, small beige head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is tart cherry, oak, vanilla, funk, perhaps a touch of turpentine. Flavor is the same, fruity and woody, vinous almost bourbon-like barrel notes. Initially sweet, then dries out quickly to a very dry finish. Only lightly tart, with just a tiny bit of funk present and light astringence. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. ABV is quite well hidden. For me all sours of this class are held up to RR Supplication, and this one stands up quite well. Kudos to Avery!

Couldn’t wait any longer to open this. Opaque, reddish plum pour, orangey highlights. A little tan head. Huge oak tannins on the nose, cabernet grape, hint of raspberry, citric zest. Big tartness up front gives way to blackberry, raspberry, musty basement, chewy root. Massively dry finish. Complex and challenging.

All of the first 10 from the series were shared by craftbeerdesign. Mostly clear brown orange pour. Tart and sour red/tannin nose. Sweeter, tannic, fruity, lemon a bit, wine grape skins. Super crazy dry with a long tart finish. REally nice.
