3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle with my wife at my grandparents. Pour is murky amber with a small white head that dissipated. Big vinegar, lightly spicy, cinnamon, caramelly, bready, red wine, and woody aroma. Taste is big vinegar, fruity, somewhat spice, weird caramel malty, and bready with a big sour finish. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Much too vinegar heavy and not as good as the previous offering.

Wow, this was good. Murky red, with a decent sized head. Smells like tart cherrie and balsamic vinegar. Taste is a smooth, tart mix of cherry, lemon, and oak, with notes of balsamic vinegar and citric acid. Very tasty stuff. Thanks to theisti for the trade!

Pours a golden/amber like color with thick white head that is typical of boulevard beers. Aromas of slight sour with some sweet citrus. Flavors full of sour funk and well balanced with some sweet oak finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Colour...cloudy dark amber with a thick head. Nose...very fruity with a lean toward orchard fruits, esp peaches and ’cots. Palate...loads of frothiness then a wave of funky fruit that seems mostly like overripe plums and apricots. There’s a Brooks prune complexity here as well as a yeasty aspect with hints of oak and a dry oaky finish.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
ice and tart with a good amount of funky brett. Sourness is perfect. Tart raspberries, strawberry, the barrel aging imparts a richness that doesn’t really come off as a bourbon barrel.
