4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a copper color with a bit of white head. Cabernet wine and brett yeast funk-tart aroma. The flavor is fantastically complex...lightly tart with a peach and wine edge. Really an outstanding beer.
Notes: On cask at the brewery and the 2013 Birmingham brewfest

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured a hazy deep gold with a medium-sized fluffy white head. Aroma was some tropical fruit, slight funk. Flavor was light peach, apple, tropical fruit, mild funk, mild sourness, medium sweetness, wood, vanilla, vinous. Thick mouthfeel. Quite good but a little too sweet and thick for my taste; not enough bretty funk. I suspect the oak aging might suppress the brett a bit.
