4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Grapey, sour and plenty of redcurrant. Smooth and incredibly fruity. The bourbon barrel is mellow and comes through in that slick and woody fashion. Oh damn. This is well put together. Light.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of tart notes with some hints of oak with some Brett notes. Taste is a complex mix of tart notes with some Brett notes comprised of barnyard and wet leather notes with some wood noticeable as well. Body is above average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very complex drink but also able to retain a good drinkability level.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy reddish amber with a tan head and lacing. The aroma is funky with dark fruits. The flavor is tart fruit up front with a slightly sweet (maybe from the bourbon) but mostly sour finish over a medium body.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 19.01.2014, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is sour red berries (mostly red currants), mild vinegar, oak, berry skin, hints of paint and grass. Taste is lots of sour red berries, soda powder, berry skin, sorrel, raw rhubarb, mild vinegar, oak, grass. Nice acidity. Very nice, but I can’t really see where the bourbon aging kicks in.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
750ml bottle split with the wife celebrating the birth of our twins. We now have 3 love childs.
A - Pours a murky with a small head.
S - Smells sour, acidic lacto, mild dusty funk, sharp damp wood, sour orchard fruit, apples, berry tartness, some peppery notes, whiskey soaked wood. The aroma of old furniture woods comes out when warmed up.
T - Puckering sour upfront, acidic fruit, unsweetened cranberry juice, tart cherries, apple skins, lemons, sharp salty cheese, a rounding whiskey and wood slowly sneaks out as it warms. The finish has a snappy pepperness to it, but closes crisp and clean.
M - Sour with an acidic bite, mild effervescent carbonation that smooths out as it sets.
This packs a pretty sour punch. The tartness puckers your taste buds, scrubs the palate bringing with it complex esters, leaving behind light whiskey and old wood. Very nice roundness with crisp and snappy finish. I wish I would have bought more.
