3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 750ml bottle. Fruity and tart aroma, with notes of oak, vanilla, red grape, cherry and faint background sweetness. Cloudy red-orange in color, head is slight and fading. Flavor profile is predominantly fruity, also woody and earthy, plenty more red/berryish fruitiness here along with faint hints of vanilla, citrus and balsamic. Finishes very tart and dry, nary a trace of the alcohol to be found. Low in effervescence, moderate level of acidity here. Not a bad example of a Flanders Red style sour, would be nicer if it came in smaller bottles and at a lower price. Thanks to Eugene!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opened at the end of year Ottawa tasting. Hazy amber with an off white head. Bourbon seemed muted on this one although there was a decent amount of oak, a nice tartness, caramel malt and doughiness, some brett, alcohol was balanced but present, moderate body and carbonation, nice tartness throughout

Hazy caramel colored with a small dirty off white head. Aroma of cherries, leather, funk, and wine. Taste is really tart and funky. Very dry, medium bodied, and below average carbonation. Very nice.

Bottle poured into glass. Good bit of sour funk in this one. Nice balance between the fruit characteristics and the tartness. Easily drinkable and the ABV is masked extremely well. Very good sour!

Bottle shared at Woodshop 7. Pours dark orange. Boring boozy aroma. Flavor is better, with tangerines and oranges, salty alcohol, light fusel, acetic and leathery.
