Bottle # 36 of 378 & shared by Shane, thanks! Pours a dark amber with a thin head. Smell is similar to a flanders red with notes of sweet cherries and some dark malt. Taste was pretty acidic and dry. Overall, not amazing in any way, but definitely an enjoyable dark, wild ale.

25.4 oz bottle. Deep burgundy brown with a thin ring of froth. Nose is sour red grapes, musty wood, toffee and black cherry. Slick medium body with a soft sparkle. Taste is apricot jam, oak and champagne vinegar finishing with strawberry lemonade. Still retains that lovely hint of sweet fruit that characterizes Bullfrog’s best work.

Bottle at a tasting thanks to Rciesla.
Aroma : Vinous with some oak. Medium sourness. Quite woody.
Taste : Medium sourness, vinous and a bit acidic. Nice sourness while not very powerful.
