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.
