3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a 22oz bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours clear light brown with an average tan head that leaves an average collar of lace. The nose is sweet caramel malt with some tart red wine vinegar aroma. The flavor is more red wine vinegar, and more tartness than I expected given the nose, with the same sweet caramel and brown sugar malt. The body is full with light carbonation and a long pretty sweet red wine vinegar finish.

Interesting beer. Pours translucent reddish orange, medium head. Smells sour, vinegar, grapes, oak. Taste is really vinegar-heavy, pretty sour, some fruity oaky notes. Lots of things I like here, but a little too much vinegar to be really good.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, hazy reddish brown pour with white head, aroma brought vomit, butyric, lots of acidic, acetic, and tart fruit notes, hints of oak, yikes. Taste is big burning acetic along with plastic, oak, earth, some cherry, finishing very tart, burns. Wow I cannot drink more than a few oz of this.

Was not expecting a sour, but really enjoyed this sipping wild ale. Can taste the wine barrels on the finish.

28th May 2014
Tasting at Chez Bruce. Hazy deep amber beer, good size pale tan head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Sharp sourness and sharp acid. Aggressive Flemish sourness and lemon acid. Rough! Deschutes have let me down big style here.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle split at Bruce’s pad, thanks to Sir Kenwold of Essex, 28/05/14.
Dark chestnut brown with a well appointed beige covering.
Nose is big tarte fruit waftings, pretty full on acidity levels, sweet picalilli acid after you’ve left the jar a year or so too long.
Taste comprises battery acid light, tarte pulped fruit, vinegar, decaying wood, citric peel.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, acidic rinse to finish.
Hmmmm.... this is no Lambaek wants blood orange but the acid levels are way overcooked to make this more enjoyable than a simple rating tick shared with friends. Puckery duckery doo.

Wait what,.,. damn butyric, sour milk and vomit on the nose. This beer was a disaster. Acrid acidity, hope I can get this taste out of my mouth so I can enjoy another beer this evening. Oh wait, Ive only had this in my rot box for 6 months... looking at the label it wasn’t supposed to be good until September 14. Guess Im just doing it wrong, Woops.

Bottle... This beer puts the “laughter” in Manslaughter! Pours clear, deep, dark-copper with a small creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is of tart cherries and white oak. Medium to full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is a tart, tangy, malty swirl of cherries and caramel, accompanied by raw white oak and a faint splash of red wine vinegar in the finish.
