3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 8/9/11 from a 375mL capped bottle purchased at West Lakeview Liquors. This is labeled as TR5. Pours hazy burnt orange with a fiery red tint, and no head whatsoever, just a little bit of off-white lacing that disappears rather quickly. The nose is very sour with lemon and vinegar, and funky with barnyard, along with some caramel and brown sugar malt, vanilla oak, and some alcoholic heat. The flavor is a nice blend of sour lemon and vinegar with pleasant toasted malts, and a bit of oxidative oak coming through, presenting as a hint of hazelnut. The body is fairly full with just a light hint of carbonation and a long, sour, malty, and lightly nutty finish. Overall, this beer reminds me of an older oak-aged white wine that is beginning to show a bit of age.

500mL Bottle. Shared by Sean, Thanks! Slight buttery sour and barrel aroma. Some oak and strong wine. Tangy and vinous. Heavily vinous, unsurprisingly. The sourness is kind of one dimensional and I can’t feel much beneath. I’ve never been impressed with the complexity or breadth of their beers. Plain.
