3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012 bottle with Ray, Chris and Jay. Pours a hazy reddish amber with fluffy beige head and nice lace. Nose of caramel, funk, vanilla, oak. Medium body, very sweet with light tartness. This would probably do well with a couple more years of aging.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle split with my brother and some other guy. Aroma is horseblanket funk, tart cherries, strawberry stems, and a hint of feta. Pours dull peach pink with a decent but short-lived head. Taste is reserved with tart cherries, barnyard funk, floral yeast, and a caramel finish. Pleasant. Reminds me of some of Iron Hill’s sour offerings.

2012 bottling, at RBAG 2013. Reddish brown with a small white ring of head. Cherries and tanginess in the nose, red wine, alcohol. Taste has dark fruits - cherry, plummy, rich, thick red wine, some tang. Finishes with some alcoholic heat. Nice and rich, quite an enjoyable dark sour brown ale.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle - Vintage 2012 -Toffee, brown sugar, plums and alcohol. Clear amber with a thin head. Incredibly smooth for a sour is the first thing you notice. So well balanced with dark fruits, brown sugar and some alcohol heat but appropriate and not out of place. I can’t wait to put some age on these and see what happens.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2010. Reminds me of a Cascade: high malty, tons of soured grain. Spirit barrels, acidic yeast, sour green apples on the palate. Better than I remembered; age did this well.

Bottle sharred by Ferris at RBAG 2013, thanks buddy. 2012 vintage Cloudy red brown pour, smell is oak and cherry (sourness). The taste is well rounded and not overly accidic, there is some cherry sourness but also nice bits of oak and a slight malty/boozy finish. Throughly enjoyed.
