From a tap at the brewery.At my first few sips I thought it was a bit too sour and now at the half way mark it has a dark berry like wine taste .It doesn’t flesh out as good as Cuvee De Tomme which I thought of this beer when I saw it on the list .

Sample at Rattle N Hum. This beer is a dark orange color with a medium thick off-white head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Fruity aroma with notes of malt and yeast. Medium body with flavors of tart fruit, peppery yeast and malt. The finish is fruity up front with an earthy yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap (Bear Republiv): slight haze, brown with low to medium head. Huge lift of something unpleasant. Dominated by chemical and stone thing woody or herbaceous. Dry, sour, bitter and phenolic. Dense and long
Bloody unpleasant chemical or brown spice. Bacterial spoilage was good but dominated.
Maybe a strange Brett character.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Bear Republic, pours a hazy amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma is very complex, with loads of wild yeast, oak barrels, and some lightly tart fruits. Flavour is exceedingly complex, full of an amazing blend of wild yeast, followed by oak wood barrels, and very subtle lightly tart fruitiness. The wild yeasts create an amazingly complex and elegant flavour profile. Highly drinkable, not revealing any of the 9%. Awesome stuff.
