Smells super rich. Like a barrel of rotting, fermenting fruit. Finishes sour and a little bitter. Pours orange with decent head, medium carbonation. Taste has oaky barrel, lots of sour plum. On tap at brewpub.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2012 Enjoyed on tap at Volo Funk Night II. A good sour beer. The plums, thank goodness, are subtle, yet the fruit sourness is right there. The wine is subordinate, so the taste is not dominated by the barreling. Good fruit sugar makes it very drinkable. Very fresh. A good colour. Another bang on target for the style. Had on tap at the brewpub and it was very good balanced.

650 ml Bottle picked up this past saturday at the source. This is my first sample from this brewery and I’m quite excited about it. Pours a light amber with a tinge of orange. White head that disapates to almost nothing but a ring around the glass, some lacing splashes. Nose super sweet, fruity (plums specificly). Tastes sweet, quite bitter obviously sour and a little bit of butter. I find essense of plum skin as well. Great first experience with this new brewery.

650 ml bottle, clear amber pour, minimal white head.
Great funky aroma, the barrel is right up front bringing some nice woody vanilla notes. The fruit is subtle, but adds a nice sugary, fruity sweetness. The funk is solid and fresh, wet hay, and green fresh cut grass. As it warms the vanilla really starts to dominate and take away from the funk. Still extremely impressive!
