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 dad’s farm back when I was a child. But it doesn’t stop there: pour it into your glass and you’ll get fresher esters suggesting something like a sort of local cherry cola, not the multinational kind, but something you’d drink out of a clear-glass bottle. I’d call it artificial, but I know it’s 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. It’s hard to get over how good it is.

Bottle shared with Dave for his 1 year anniversary. Dated 062212. Pours deep amber with a scant beige head. Aroma is caramel, tart cherry, acetic. Taste starts with sour cherry, oak, a touch of caramel comes in and it gets amazingly soft through the center. Finish is oak, some red wine. Really nice.

2011 version. On tap at brouwers big wood. Typical supplication. Great beer. Aged a few years so is a little more sweet. Sour has mellowed a bit.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Served into a Teku from 010714 bottle of Supplication. As of now, bottle has aged ~ten months.
Aroma -- scents of inviting sour berries and wine barrels emanating from glass. Tough to pinpoint the cherries from the aromatic qualities; however, fruit esters are evident from aroma.
Appearance -- opaque, almost translucent, light brown hue. Little if any sediment in bottom of Teku.
Taste -- phenomenally balanced brew: the lacto and pedio coalesce marvelously w/ the pinot barrels. This brew has a dreamlike sour cherry tartness w/ crisp pinot barrel on the after-tone that leaves your mouth puckering and salivating for another sip. This brew is more sour than sweet, which I appreciate. The cherries in this batch are not as distinct or sweet as the Montmorency cherries--patented by New Glarus Brewing--but, still blend and taste brilliant, nonetheless. Fruit esters and brettanomyces masquerade ABV exceptionally well.
Palate -- exploring all avenues of your palate, this sweet, sour, and crisp sour leaves your palate as satisfied as ever.
I have been aging this for ten months now. Supplication is a vinous sour that matures exceptionally well over time. Although delicious fresh, the sourness improves and may intensify over time w/o compromising the integrity of the beer. When I get a fresh batch, I’ll reconfirm the aforementioned statement. I I am completely transfixed by the pure craftsmanship involved in the brewing of this batch.

This is one of the best overall beers I’ve ever tasted. Great balance between ingredients, and the sour is not overpowering, but is tart enough on the palate to be very refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sour aroma of grapes and lactic acid, amber colour not much of a head. Dry feel with a sour taste with hints of grapes and a sour finish.
