COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer sat quietly, aging in our barrel room for over a year before we decided it was time - time to blend in some beautiful ripe red grapes, Brettanomyces, freshly emptied wine barrels and time, this beer is infinitely complex and a challenge to the perception of what beer can be. This beer is re-fermented in the bottle and will age for years to come. Straight from the Captain’s cellar to yours, we hope you enjoy.

Bottle shared by the Gambeez at the 6/27 Del Mar Doom ... it keeps on rolling... this was a GREAT beer! Explosive nose of brett, woody, grapes, earthy...wow. Flavor one uped it ... SOUR. Sour. puckeringly sour. Dry, lingering, grapes, cherry, pear, fruit juice... palate was soft and rolling. This is some serious shit. Supplication on crack. Thanks Justin, I loved it.

yourilevesque (1071) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2016
Dégustée en compagnie de Marc-André et Yan. Après une verticale de 4 ans de KBS, rien de mieux pour se rincer le palais qu’une jolie sour BA! Un look léger et intelligent. Le liquide est mi rouge mi rose, dépourvu de toute mousse. Les arômes qui me parviennent sont celles d’un baril affirmé ayant longtemps servi de résidence à un funk plein de vie s’étant empiffré de raisin rouge. Aucun alcool mais un vinaigre qui laisse présager une acidité sans merci. Aucune surprise ici, le liquide est d’une acidité tranchante et s’adresse aux palais exercés. Malgré cette agressivité, la buvabilité demeure bonne, propulsée par ces douces saveurs de baril, de raisin et de figue. Intense mais très plaisante!

SlovakSniper (4626) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2016
Beau nez et bouche en profondeur sur des fruits rouges, touche balsamique, rondeur d’alcool, malts en support, caramel, notes boisées vibrantes, brettanomyces. Corps plus ou moins lourd, huileuse texture. Sèche, je dirais même très sèche en finale. Pas agressive pour mes papilles, vivement une autre dégustation de ce délicieux truc roux.

dagimp (915) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2016
2015 batch. From a 375ml bottle into an oversized wine glass. Paid $15 for this sucker. Pours a ruby-red/brown. No head and no lacing. Very much wine like aroma with some lime and red wine vinegar tossed in. Mouthfeel is sweet but dry and moderate... slightly astringent. Lots of tiny bubbles and carbonation. Taste is light red wine with a TON of berry flavor. Sourness is subdued but certainly present. For a sour beer, this is sooooooo smooth and well put together. Wow! it’s slightly sweet, but not too much; same for sourness; same for carbonation. Tons of berry flavor. Really, really loved this one. For $15 a bottle it’s not at all cheap, but it is very worth it for a special occasion.

Ruddy pour. Tart vinous aroma. Flavor is similar with some barnyardy (Brett) notes. Quite nice.

thornecb (5278) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 12, 2016
Pours mahogany into a tulip. White head with little retention recedes to nothing. Dark pit fruit, funk and oak aromas. Medium bodied with pit fruit and grapes upfront turning to marshmallow brett and band-aid in the lasting finish.

Mep3222 (1099) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - DEC 24, 2015
2015 Batch: Oaky lactic sour aroma with almost a grape musk in there. Taste is mostly lactic sour with a bit of an earthy funk finish. Almost a funky grape finish. Almost a slight boozy oakyness to it. Not overly sour, maybe 4 of 10 sour. Complex and has a descent amount of body. Woody and some dark fruit in there with the grape musk. Solid sour for sure, but for the price it is a step below cascade sours or bruery sours, and even a bit more expensive than those for similar volume. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thnx Rob ! Pours unclear amber , no real head ( looks like wort) Smell is sour, oaky, fruity. Taste is dry sour, lactic acid. Mild fruity. Nice, but not really as complex as expected. Still very nice though
