COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blend of Rasbiscus Mead with our Honey Ale and Stout aged for three months in a Brettanomyces-infused wine barrel. Mmm, that sounds good. I’ll have that.

Stuedmaster (295) - Vista, California, USA - DEC 30, 2014
On tap at the brewpub in Oceanside. I never would have guessed that it was such an unusual combination of mead and ale, it tastes similar to a Flanders Red/Brown Sour aged in oak. Poured in a tulip glass, nice red/brown appearance with a slight head. Aroma of cherry, oak, vanilla, vinegar. Nice balance of sweet, sour, and slight bitter, earthy and vinous. Clean finish, perfect oak character, I’ll have another.

AmEricanbrew (6181) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 9, 2014
 Dark caramel color with ivory foam. Big aspirin, wet wood, sour fruit aromas. Smooth mouthfeel. Dry dark caramel, sour dark fruit, wet wood, spicy red wine flavors are lightly to medium tart----smooth easy finish for a sour---not bad.

"A little on the lite side in all aspects, but a flavorable, sessionable sour brown ale that was enjoyed by all. Cherries, amalt and a lactic sourness on the nose and palate. Cool surprise."

On tap at the brewpub. An unclear amber to brown beer with a small creamy light beige head. Nice curtains. Light roasted aroma with caramel, some dried fruits and a distinct baked touch. There’s a faint bitterness in the flavor, with roasted notes and some oak and caramel. Full body, really smooth on the palate. Caramel and some oak in the finish. Unusual, but nice. Not much Brett impact. 130813
