4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Naven brought a bottle of this by for the unofficial Death Metal Beer Tasting that we had at my pad last week. I cannot come up with enough clever notes that havenít been said already, but know that this is a great sour ale and definitely worth seeking out. Oh, hell, who am I kidding... I was already pretty well on my way when we cracked this open. All I remember is that it lives up to the score it has. Sour like all, get out.

Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Light tartness and some white grape. Cloudy gold with a light head. Light sourness, malts and some light tomato with a dry and mild booze finish. The age on this bottle has not improved it, I remember it much better fresh.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at first sunday. Got the last pour so a little bit of yeast and grit at the end. Still really complex though. Fruit and fund and wood and oak. A lot going on in the aromas and flavors. Red fruit and plum flavors. Little bit of spice on the finish as well. Every sip is something different and new which is a mark of a ridiculous sour for me.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml shared bottle.
Nice hazy red-amber color.
Strong sour aroma with a very rich and complex flavor. Barrel aging is exceptionally well done, with enough added flavor to enhance but not overpower the other, mostly fruity, properties. Moderately tart.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 c&c from Belmont Station. Pours hazy burnt copper with a transient head. Aroma is sour oaky fruit - reminds of BFM. Med + body. Itís tart, mildly sour, and mixedly fruity. Starts cherry, oak, tart/sour, gets a sweetness towards the end of each quaff; sort of. Itís almost sour and sweet at the same time. Almost. Not a trace of heat. Challenges the palate. Excellent.
