3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Parkville 2011. I think I may have gotten the last pour off the keg. The beer is not super sour, more in the traditional Flanders style with cherry sweetness and an underlying earthy, dirty, sourness. Its thick and complicated with lots of earthy yet berry flavors. Lots of thick, bready malts rolled in there as well. The light sourness is a nice complement.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A cloudy brown beer with a quickly dissipating beige head. The aroma is wood, vanilla, cherry, and citrus. The flavor is wood and vanilla up front with a very nice tart cherry that intensifies in the finish. Quite sour but also quite delicious.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks Gene. Clear copper pour white head. Aroma is really weird tons of bourbon with brett, quite leathery, musk. Taste is better, still sweet but with a nice tartness. Palate is heavy, difficultly drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Pours a murky mahogany with a micro film.
Aroma: Tart plum skin, bourbon, some coriander and or some savory spice.
Taste: Tart red fruit, mellowed bourbon, red wine vinegar. Modest tannins, lingering tartness.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, puckering with soft carbonation.
Overall: I enjoyed this immensely. The closest thing I could compare this beer to would be Upland’s Gilgamesh, but would give this beer the slight edge on favorite. Very tasty and inviting. Sour, but not twist your face off sour. Wish I had one to sit on for a year.
