750 ml. bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a small white head. Aroma of fruits, malt, wood, and wine. Taste is tart cherries, citrus, wood, wine, and some chocolate. Sour mainly, but enough sweetness to make it truly enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. I hope it tastes better than the deScription: olives and leather?!?! Dirty red-copper with minimal head. Strong wine-vinegar aroma. Tastes like the deScription. Not sure that I have ever tasted pickles or olives in a beer. Cool malt undertones but sensing that the emperor is a little underdressed.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Acquired in a trade. I really enjoy these Boulevard beers. Enjoyed at 60F in a tulip. Very still, no head. The cork barely made it out of the bottle.
A - Murky reddish brown. Still. No lacing at all.
S - Nice grape skin musk on the nose, cherries and lavender with some oaky tropical fruit scent.
T - Very tart and bitter up front. Bretty, dry and crisp in the middle. Last bit is a weird identify crisis and i get vanilla and charred smoke and bourbon.
M - No carbonation, light body. Very dry.
O - Itís a weird beer. I love the start and hate the finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a glowing reddish orange with a medium, off white head. Aroma of raspberries and mildly tart cherries. Medium funk, mild vinegar, some apparent oak notes. A mild wine quality as well. Flavor is subtle sourness, nuanced fruit and vinuous notes. The funk starts to come out as it opens up. Light, fruity berry tartness. Mild leather and oak. As well as notes of tart cherry. Body is on the light side of medium. Finishes tart with mild vinnegar notes. Pretty nice wild ale.

Very good sour. Reminds me of some of the best geuzes. The funk is immediate and apparent in the aroma and taste. Sour apple, aged wood, and yeast. Tried at the Cuniganís tasting party in 2012.
