Interesting sour... I like it! Overall not a huge fan of the sours, but this one keeps me engaged. I love the oaky finish. Certainly, each SIP is a journey that takes you through an increasing level of sour funk then quickly moving on to the oak notes. Not sure if I have the palate to explain this much further. Tasting note from the wife: "ewww, gross". I’ll let her finish her winter ale while I enjoy this to myself.

Lip smacking amazement. I could last 3 months on a desert island drinking nothing but this wonderful concoction. Top shelf.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
cloudy red-amber color with small head. Sour and fruity aroma, fermenting berries, some strawberry. Dry mouthfeel in the front although it has almost some sugars later; not too aggressive, but with very strong astringency, medium sourness, fruity, berries, some cherries; the final has some yeast/dough/bread that would better be avoided.

650 to small wine glass, beer pours a turbid brown with almost no head. I’m not gonna lie, it looks pretty greasy. Thankfully the aroma of this is pretty mindblowing; sour and funky, lots of brett notes, rotten fruit, citric fruits, candy. A bit of booze too. Very complex, smells exactly like the Belgian offerings. Taste wise, it’s sour driven with not much sweetness to counter. Of interesting note is the fact that the hops are lurking in the background as well which isn’t common but a nice touch. Lots of subtle grassy notes with a nice sour punch. Palate is thin mouthfeel and a bit watery, more body would be great. Nice and dry though could use more carb. Alcohol undetectable. Overall, this really impressed me and of all the Belgian styled beers available that are locally made this one is extremely well done. I’m nitpicking here and there but this is fantastic stuff! Thanks for the bottle Patrick.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 650mL bottle. Clear amber brown with minimal off-white head. Strong sour aroma, mild sour funk, some mild apple vinegar. Same taste, not too sour. Quite light body. Good, but quite safe and therefore nothing amazing.

650ml bottle. Ruby red pour with big, bubbly head. Sour cherries, merlot, oak, strawberries, ripe green apple, funky yeast. Huge aroma, big flavour. Rich and tart; lightly sweet. A bit thin through the body with a Champagne-like mouthfeel. Anxious to see how this cellars...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours medium copper with little to no carbonation. Smells of funk with some sourness. Tastes of berries, with tartness and light sourness. Medium-full bodied with a smooth texture. One of the lighter, accessible, and more pleasant sours I’ve tasted.
