4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle split with Adam Jackson. 2012 vintage. Poured a hazy purple color with thin white head. Nose is mostly tart berries and light lacto. Taste is fresh blueberries initially then transitions to tart puckering wheat notes. Some Earthy notes and light booze. Light to medium body with a dry tart finish. Acidic and lightly sharp after taste. This is a beautiful sour and would love to grab a bottle and sit on it to see how it changes. Awesome!

(750ml bottle thanks to Nellie) clear, bright red, pretty colored beer. Nose of blueberry, stems, juniper, other tart fruit, light oak, and yogurt. Taste of tart blueberry, fruit comes through nicely, VERY light vinegar but present, more vinous and red winelike as it warms, tart/acidic linger, pretty nice fruit sour.

The flavor starts with tart blueberries, alcohol, barrel and other red berry flavors. The finish has the heavy fruit and adds a nice oak element. Quite nice.

750ml shared by Madvike. Purple red, deep. Oily, thin head. Juicy, fruity. Some of that test tube US action, but juicy and nice, real fruity depth. Captures a mellow enjoyability not found in most US sours.

Bottle split with Tom and Jessie. Pours a purple haze with thin white head. Aromas and taste are very perfumey, and dark grape forward. Lots of barrel yeast with a really sour finish. As it warmed I got more tart blueberry, raspberry, and other sugary fruitts. Pretty tasty.
