3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from 02-2015 thanks to a trade with mr angrypirate06. Pours with a hazy medium hued red body and a large and mostly retentive off white head with good lace. Aromas are musty and funky with a noticeable acidity and a lightly acetic nose. Under ripe plums, tannins, oak, black cherries and some bourbon. Flavors are medium tart, bright and clean acidity with vibrant fruity notes of cherries, plums and dates. Nice tartness, medium funky notes, oak, light esters. You can feel the warmth, but any sort of alcohol taste is well hidden. Medium bodied, tart, prickly carbonation. Nice to drink. I feel like I might be underrating it a little bit.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"Pretty aggressively sour, even cutting through the bourbon, which is also more than adequate. This is an in your face beer, but with subtleties and a ton going on nonetheless. Acidic in feel, and a bigger beer abv wise. Lemony sour and bourbon play nicely together. Definitely a memorable one. I’d get this again too, though it was pretty expensive."

Bottle. Hazy red/brown body with a medium offwhite head. Aroma of cranberries, raisin, vinegar, light tartness.

Lovely amber color with an off white head. Fresh inviting aroma. Mellow fresh sour berry fruity. Even my friend who actually not buy beer like this says: nice. Fine body and a fresh carbonation. Fine sourness together with a balanced sweetness. Balanced and nice flavor. Tasty and powerful sour fruity. Also mild vinegar, some oak and some vanilla. Complex lovely ale.
