Ancient rating from Hunahpu’s Day 2012, I recently found my tasting notes. Figured why waste good ticks…remember this one being sort of an odd beer. Plenty of tart and vinegar with whiskey barrel sweetening.

on tap for hunahpu day. Murky reddish brown with no head. Aroma of whiskey, vinegar, sour grapes and citrus. Taste follows, sour and whiskey play well together. i like this better than the base

shared a sample of this with one of the 7venth sun guys... pours a murky deeper mahogany, mostly non-transparent with minimal head... coconut light bourbon dark fruits and cherry pits incorporate the nose... flavors are similar although the body was a little too big thick for me to enjoy it more. i like that palm ridge barrel but the beer was bigger than it needed it to be. that being said, i’d have it again.

On draft at Cigar City Huna Day 2012. Tasted from my buddy’s glass. I liked the original Vuja De but this was just a little too acidic for me. Strange aroma that reminded me of like bad mustard seed of some sort.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Hunahpu Day 2012. Pours a dark-red brown with a white head. Nose is some sour notes at first- vinegar, tart dark fruit- followed in by a bit of vanilla and sweetness from the barrel. Interesting beer, nice color, but a bit of infighting between sweet and tart. Medium in body and not sure about this one. It is one I will be thinking about it for a while.

Reddish/brown pour. Aroma is a bit weird, with bourbon, tartness, wine notes. Flavor is a fight between bourbon, oak and sourness. Not sure on this one.

For a sour ale, the dark body more than showed a barrel aging process. Smelled like sour cherries, wood and bourbon. I don’t normally like sour ales, but with bourbon and earthiness mixed with the traditional sour fruity undertones - the balance was perfect. I hope they bottle something like this soon.

Poured a deep mahogany color, with aromas of tart fruitiness, and bourbon. I was not a fan at all of. The regular Vuja De, but with this treatment it was amazing. I was expecting the worst, for some reason the tartness blended real nice with the bourboun, and acidic tart fruit flavor was amazing. I might have to reopen and relate a regular Vuja De.

Didn’t know what to expect with this one. Tap at Hunahpu day 2012. Nose is tart, acidic fruits and some flowery notes. Sour whiskey. Tastes are pretty similar with a funky, fruity taste and a bit of bourbon in the mix. I liked it and I’m not much of a sour guy.
