3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle share from Rich. The sour fans hated this, but those of us who didnít like sours were a bit more forgiving. Initial aroma was nose hair singing, and taste sharp, but once it settled on the palate was warm and enjoyable. Big shock up front, subtle pleasure awaits.

Bottle, pours reddish brown with a thin beige head. Oaky, vinous, sharp malty nose... Tastes like sour green apple, a little vinous, and background malt. Some oak. Really interesting.

Hazy brownish pour with a slight head. Pretty much an acetic yuck bomb, interesting to taste, but its so acetic that it belongs on some fish ní chips.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Somebody at Deschutes screwed up a Green Lakes and didnít want to dump the batch, so they pitched some funky yeast and hoped for the best.
The result is a dull, clear copper, the color of an old penny. The head is thin and light tan in color. An enticing aroma mixes sour brown and red wine, with notes of sweet cherry, vinous green oak, toffee, lemon and balsamic blending. Very complex. The flavorís much more tart, with lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, oak, toasted coconut and caramel. Some citrusy, grassy hops pop up as well. The acidity is just a smidge too intense for me, but otherwise this is a pretty enjoyable screwup.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, deep amber, decent cream head, great lace. Aroma caramel apple, horse blanket. Taste horse blanket, caramel, green apple, vanilla, black pepper, toffee, oak, goat. Palate is fairly light, but smooth, carbonation decent. Finish is complex, sour, spicy. I was afraid of this, and yet itís one of the best Iíve had! Wish I had another!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This brew pours a murky brown color with a minimal off-white head that disappears quickly to a sparse outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Vinous aroma with brett and oak notes. Medium body with flavors of vinous oak, tart fruit and funky brett. The finish is tart and slightly vinegary with a red wine and yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
