4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2012 Bottle from Bacterial, just because he’s a nice guy! Thanks Jeff! Pour is a slightly hazy copper with a rich white head that leaves some nice lacing down the sides of my New Belgium tulip. Aroma on this beer just kicks so much ass- Tons of white stone fruit, pears, apples, spritzy citrus, with just the right amount of sour touch to let you know what’s there. Caramel malt makes itself known, along with some pine hops. Just sublime. Taste is perhaps a touch weaker. Still lots of white fruit, but the apple cider notes are more forward, with more malt presence as well. Soft sourness, perhaps a bit of acetic acid, but it works very well. Light carbonation. Great, great beer, I could drink gallons of the stuff!

Great back story to this rate. I was meeting up with HeffIam for an in person trade. He and some buddies were in town for a bachelor party. I introduced him and a few of the celebrants to Dave Blanchard, owner of the Brick Store. He proceeded to show them the Brick Store cellar and pop one of these bottles on the house. Glad he did. Marvelous beer. Pours a just hazy red with hint of brown. Big white head. Scent is cranberry, sours grapes, and tart candy. Well balanced sweet and sour flavors. Lively with a light medium body.

Pours a murky hazel with very little carbonation or head. Smells like honey and straw, slight caramel. Taste was very unique, very balanced honey, earthy, wood, slightly bitter. Palate was mild with a bit of a bitter aftertaste. Overall, a unique experience, not sure I’ve tried anything like this before.
