3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It pours an unclear, dark amber body under a minimial sized off-white head. Vinegar, roasted malts, dried fruits and a funky, bretty touch on the nose. The flavor has a lightly sourish note, almost vinegarish, kept company by dried fruits and some leathery, lemony and barnyard-ish flavors. Itís dry, tart and pleasantly carbonated, with a lightly citric finish. A beer lacking a bit on complexity, but itís quite nice anyway. 111229

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a murky, rusty amber color with a wisp of a head and little lacing. A film does sit on top for a while. Aroma light with vinegar, stone fruit, cherry pie, and damp rotting wood. Tastes much of the same but in a less "bad" way than the smell. Body and palate was pretty good, smooth silky and nicely LOW carbonated. Overall, not a great example of the style as there was not enough funk in some areas, too sweet in others and a bit of a mess in yet some more. I will say this though, it may be a decent introductory to someone who has never tried the style as it is mild with many of the different flavors that are usually found in the style.
