2008 bottle. Aroma sour funky cherries. More of the same in the flavor - dark cherry, sour, funky mustiness, underlying dark sweet fruits. Vaguely reminiscent of cherry covered cheese cake with a chocolate crust. Some medicinal qualities on the finish. Well done - would be interested in trying a fresher bottle to see what it tastes like a little younger.

22oz bottle -
2012 bottle, red wax. This was still a rather young beer, with the brett character just getting it’s foothold. Flavor is very dry, has a good amount of funk to it with lots, and lots of lemon-rubbed leather. Not a kick-you in the nuts sour, but quick complex even right now. Some light wine notes and green apple also showing up. I didn’t get much cherry, but did get a fair amount of citrus. Very nice from Deschutes!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - 2012 vintage. Pours hazy reddish hazel - really a weird neon candy orange actually, medium fizzy tan head that dissipates quickly leaving decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is hella oak, some basement funk, lemon, tart cherry. Flavor has a bit of initial sweetness, then dries out to light plus tartness and a light funk. Flavors of cherry, oak, basement must. Medium body, rich mouthfeel. After the first few sips and as it warms it gets very woody and a bit harsh; some floor cleaner notes coming through.

2010 edition, making this beast 4 years old. Fuck the wax. Pours a hazed Amber with a decent sized head. Aromas of tart cherries and oxidized wood. Taste is semi sweet and sour. How the fuck is this not dried out after 4+ years? Flavors of dried cherries, oak and some funk. Not very sour, a tad on the sweet side and noticeable alcohol. Meh. Pretty underwhelmed.
