4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 9/30/12 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle sent to me by Chris, big thanks. Pours hazy dark orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is sour and dusty with some sweet caramel malt, funky yeast, and some oak treatment that has both vanilla and vinous notes. The flavor is a bit more barrel focused with the vanilla and vinous notes taking over, a nice sourness, and sweet caramel malt, very interesting. The body is full with a bit of an oily texture, some tannin, average carbonation, and a long sour and vinous wine barrel finish.

2011 bottle. Golden pour. Aroma is lovely and subtle - some easygoing citrus. Taste is beautiful - lemon oak, lots to enjoy here though. Nothing jumps out crazily but just a great drinker. Has a lovely vanilla sweetness on finish. Overall really great sour here!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle at home. 2011 project. Pours cloudy dark orange with a tiny off-whte fine bubbled head. Nice carbonation level, soapy legs. Spicy oaky aromas, a little dusty, sweet peach lemon wine gum, a bit of pear. Medium body with loads of sweetness, sour lactic character coming through a bit but still ok, dusty notes coming back in the end as well. Taste is sweet peach, some malt flavours. This is a nice American sour I must admit.
