3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2009 release, sampled at the brewery during GABF week.Fruity, winey, funky, tart aroma, plenty of white grape and brett character, lightly sweet with notes of melon, straw and wood. Clear rosy-golden color with a lasting, fine head. Flavor is really showing the same blend as the aroma -- sweet, bitter, tart, winey and woody, with plenty of funky, farmy character, hay, spicy bitterness, prominent alcohol and Cabernet Sauvignon. Tannic, dry mouthfeel, warming and full-bodied. Pretty tasty!

Draft at Avery during gabf week. The thing that I like about this beer is the fact that it’s sour without being overbearing. A sour beer for those that love strong ales. Very good.
