4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle thanks to Bacterial...what a treat Jeff! Of the three or four bottles of this I have tried, this one was BY FAR my favorite. 2011 Vintage. Pour is a clear light red/dark pink, with a nice head that fades rather quickly but leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is not quite so heavy on the barnyard as other samples I have had (read: Not as much "Authentic Fecal Aroma"), and the subtle nature of the funk really worked for me. Some nice damp basement dustyness, light fruit, light acid, and some tannin to finish. Dry mouthfeel. Really, really nice beer, I wish all the samples of this that I have had were so great!

Bottle. Pours a ruby red with white head. Aroma is tart, a bit funky. Very tart, a bit grape. Taste is light, tart, smooth, not sour, just tart. The more I sip the more I like. Very drinkable. Very grape/wine action going on. Tasty as hell.

Bottle: Really old one, approx. 10 or more years. Hazy, reddish, light pink color, very fizzy, no head. Notes of red wine, vinegar, cider. Flavor is also very sour with intensive notes of vinegar, citrus and citrus peel, red wine, barrels. For sure a good beer but too sour for me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
dark pink into red. Vinegary aroma with loads of funk and sour grapes. A bit vineous although I think that the type of grape does not matter. Refreshing and good.
