COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sour characteristics come to the fore in this release, foreshadowed by the tart, winey aroma. Notes of cherry, chocolate, olive brine, and leather give way to a subtle hint of funk and a dry, clean finish.

One year bottle pours burnt orange amber with a rim of khaki fizz. The aroma is funky and tart with some grainy sweetness. The flavor starts with a robust barrel note and warming grain but it quickly melds into a lemony tart sour with a very light Belgian must. It has a nice fitting sweetness that masks the intensity of the tartness and brings out some of the light fruitiness. It is low carbonation and finishes with a lingering tart citrus, light grapefruit and more so lemon, with smooth amber malts and a touch of barrel.

tmoreau (2521) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Shared 750 ml. bottle after sampling #3. Poured to snifters with a deeper, hazed orangy hue, a bubbly layer of off white head foam, and spotty cling to the lacing. The nose was light, but cleaner yeasty funk than #3, so no horse blanket, but more fruitiness, sourness, and vinous/grape qualities. More spritz & effervescence was noticed, and the finish was pleasantly dry.

Bottle shared by jmagnus87...thanks Josh! - Pours hazy roasy amber with a ring of light tan head. Nose is cherries and a light breadiness. Fairly tart. Taste is pretty tart with cherries, a touch of vinegar, some stone fruit, and bready malt. A bit cheesy. Well-carbonated with a fluffy body.

750ml bottle shared by Greg, thanks! Pours an unclear orange with a decent off white head and lacing, the aroma is full of fruit notes that have a strong funky background at the same time, the flavor has a good amount of funk and sourness on the front end with a finish of fruity, really nice bubbly mouthfeel, good stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 750ml bottle. Nice sour peach sour tones. Really pleasant sour barrel tones, leathery. Really has a steady sour edge which I hadnít anticipated. Pretty solid sour. Sticky barrel tones under pleasant peachy sour. Cool beer, probably sweated harder not at a tasting Iím sure.

750 shared at Caponeís with a generous benefactor. Pours turbid orangy dark strawish colored with off-white head. Nose is tart, lactic, fruity, funky. Tastes complex, fruity, with a lot of caramel flavor, lactic sourness, and a tart, crisp finish. This is a sour done right.

750mL bottle, pours a hazy orangey amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of sour red fruits, a little vinegar, wood tannins and fairly prominent bourbon barrel presence. Flavour brings out a bizarre combination of sour and bourbon qualities- donít think Iíve ever had a bourbon barrel aged sour- with notes of vinegar, soured fruits, light acidity, and then the bourbon shows face. Not the best combination of flavours, as I donít think the bourbon complements the sour qualities. Quite boozy and difficult to drink very quickly. Decent stuff.
