2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 Bottle.
A: Dark red bordering on black. Creme colored head with good retention. Good lacing.
N: Overwhelming acetone. Vinegar and cherry underneath. Wine grape and oak. Olive and yeast.
T: So acetic it causes a physical reaction. Some sweetness, but this vinegar sourness could kill a man.
M: Medium body. Slick.
O: They call it a mistake on the bottle. They should’ve gone with that.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the Triad bottle share at Foothills organized by Mike. Somewhat harsh nose, slightly hot with heavy vinegar and bourbon notes that open the sinuses. Flavor is more toned down, red wine vinegar and bourbon. Plenty of acetone in the finish. A bit harsh but feels like it could have been worse.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle at the Grand Tasting of RBWG14. Pours a copper-gold color without much of a head. Notes of leaves, apple, plum, grapes, oak, leather, cherry, and brown sugar. Some vinous notes and bretty funk, but those are very subtle here. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a tart, juicy mouthfeel. Good, but leaves a bit to be desired.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Best after sometime in 2014, whatever.
Pours a crimson red with brown tones and a diminishing light tan on yellow sheet. Smells of raspberries and oak, some leather and funk. Flavor follows suit with some sour, some leather, a touch of bitter and malts. Medium on light bodied with a moderate carb and a dry finish. Good beer, not great, but good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Interesting sour beer. Has an underripe apple quality to it that makes it sour but not overpowering. Pretty good overall

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Deep caramel, thin sandy head, frothy, spotty lacing.   Sweet and fruity vinegar on the nose.   Assertive woodiness.   Has a slight vinous note to it as well.   Lots of barrel aging, lots of sweet fruity vinegar.   This seems like a big one.   On the tongue it has that sweet vinegar aspect, a bit of a powdery sweetness, not as dry as I thought, nor as tart.   Does have some aspects of both unripened and over ripened cherries.   Sweeter than most, but not by much, yet less tart.   More fruity as well.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Somewhat of a moderate finish.   Woody, powdery sweetness, fruity vinegar, but not terribly dry nor tart.   Good, but only a little better than most moderate examples.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle at The Monks Kettle "United Sours of America".
Reddish/brown with a minimal head. Quite sour with oak, berries, vinegar and red wine. Not a bad one but not the best one either.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of vinegar, sour fruits, acidic notes and worcestershire sauce. Flavour is about the same, bringing out tart dark fruits, vinegar, worcestershire sauce, and acidic notes. Quite vinegary on the finish. Not the most sophisticated sour by any stretch - Deschutes missed this one big time. Not good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle from the RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours a mostly clear dark golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a tart/sour quality that favors cherry and a hint of the pinot noir barrel. I got a hefty dose of acetic acid which distracted. Some Brett character, dry finish.
