COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sour characteristics come to the fore in this release, foreshadowed by the tart, winey aroma. Notes of cherry, chocolate, olive brine, and leather give way to a subtle hint of funk and a dry, clean finish.

LtDan (1743) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 21, 2012
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.
