4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled at Brewdog Bar, Stockholm. Cloudy deep amber, small head. Funky sour nose with oak, old hay and chardonnay. Medium bodied with soft mouthfeel. Intense yet soft and relaxed, wood and sour cherries. Mild peppery heat in a vinous finish. A class act that blews me away with complex flavours and relaxed malt profile. Hats off to Boulevard, IMHO one of the best breweries in the known universe!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy amber color, small compact head. The sour aroma is mild, a bit funky, woody. Good body; lean malt flavor, with no residual sweetness, strong sourness, good wood character (no evidence of bourbon, which is better for this sharp vinous beer).
Well brewed, balanced.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. An unclear amber colored beer with a small, dense, beige head. Some vinegar on the nose, with dried apricots, some berries and a faint note of caramel. Lacks a bit on complexity maybe, but it’s certainly nice. That goes for the flavor too, where there’s vinegar, oak notes, caramel hints and dried fruits. Full to medium body, very soft on the palate, pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish. Definitely a nice American sour, the bourbon well hidden. 130812

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy dark amber with a slight beige head. Aroma suggests sour red berry. Med + body. Flavor is quite tart/sour. Seems quite cherry tart. Getting a slight trace of bourbon, maybe, but there is a lot of oak astringency. At least a lot of astringency from something. Bourbon is maybe a bit more detectable towards the finish. This stuff finishes dry/funky/tart/sour/red berry. Pretty tasty stuff.
