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.

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.

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 - It’s a weird beer. I love the start and hate the finish.

What the hell is this? Tastes like apple cider vinegar. Thats all i get is tons of apple cider vinegar and a tiny amount of sweet cherry. Not good at all.

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.

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.

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

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.
