4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 Batch 009. Endless layers of berries and tart fruits in the aroma. The vapors emanating out of the bottle tell beautiful fables of times past, featuring funky Brettanomyces; barnyard; old wood; dried manure; overripe cherries; dust; molten candi sugar; plump, ripe strawberries; a whisper of old leather; and lime. It is magical and it reminds me a lot of my dadís farm back when I was a child. But it doesnít stop there: pour it into your glass and youíll get fresher esters suggesting something like a sort of local cherry cola, not the multinational kind, but something youíd drink out of a clear-glass bottle. Iíd call it artificial, but I know itís only part of the picture. It pours a beautiful, very deep amber. The head, off-tan in color, is fizzy and gets out of your way pretty quickly, with no remnant of it sticking around. The taste is tart and sweet, like ripe berries bathed in lime juice, with accompanying bitterness that feels old and funky. It goes down and greets the stomach with burning sourness. The mouthfeel is medium, somewhat sticky and with carbonation that feels natural and lively. The aftertaste is a bit funky and barnyard-like, but mostly it is fruity, red, and tart. Itís hard to get over how good it is.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, by way of a trade. Hazy, orange copper colour. Dense, lasting, off white head. Nose has black cherry juice. Cherry stone. Soft brett. Touch of wet leather. Bit of dusty, cellar muddiness. Further to that thereís some plum and date. Plenty going on. Taste is dry, funky, stone fruit sour. Some stewed fruit bitterness. Mouthfeel is tangy, woody, and lightly sour. Bretty twang.
Some light, cherry lip sweetness. Clean, bright, tangy mouthfeel. Soft acidity. Cherry stone, tangy bitter finish. Lovely stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Copper-ish color. Aroma of sour red fruit, malt, tart, mild vanilla and oak. Taste is quite sour, with red fruit, oak, brett tart, soft red grape, oak and some malt. Body is somewhat thin, finish is long and fruity. Nice, but a bit overrated.

375 mL bottle. Not a pretty beer. Lotsa sour cherries in the nose. Red wine too. The flavour is a punch in the mouth, with no apologies. Lotsa cherries in the flavour too. Malt vinegar, red wine, brown sugar, medicine. Dry. Outstanding.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2016 Tart nose, tart flavor. Seems a lot like a Granny Smith apple lying on the ground. Really donít get the allure to people who enjoy drinking this.
