3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at FOBAB 2013. Pours a deep, cloudy amber with a huge, frothy head that mostly filled my glass because the pourer didnít give a shit. There are some dark fruits and oak here, along with soap, florals, lemon, and cheese. Really odd. Light-medium bodied, with a dry mouthfeel and soft carbonation. A soapy bitterness undercuts the sourness here. A bit disappointing.

One of the best sours I have had. Subtle velvet on the tongue. Barrel in aroma. And on the tongue. Light Bret on back of tongue. A perfect gateway Brett.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a copper/amber color with thin off white head. Aromas of sour fruits, oak, and brett. Flavor is a little flat for me. I get a confusion between a dba and a sour. It has some oak, vanilla, and even some bread like flavors. Then the brett comes in and it just doesnít have the flavors of a traditional sour. This beer was lacking for me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft on tap at Local Option (Chicago, IL). On tap as "Experimental DBA". Pours a copper amber hue, faint haze clears quickly, showing a deeper dark glow that lures you in. Frothy tannish head atop dies to a small ring, gently laces as it dies down small. Aromas present some sour fruit, touches of sweetness, oak, gentle stick around bourbon and vanilla effects. Shaved coconut, touches of cherry and red fruit. Some gentle brett as it settles in, basement and a bit dank. Initial is sweeter than anticipated, the nose pronouncing more wild yeast presence than comes down. Bready malts meet biscuit, some toastiness. Vanilla and coconut up front. A firmer hand from the barrel, gentle tartness hits as we get moving into the middle, picking up the pace a bit. Lemon, lactic acidity, some stickiness. More fruit presence, apple and some cherry elements, bready malts as more sourness, not even very intense but subtly acidic and harsh as we hit the backend. Finish is more bretty, touches of vinegar as the sour and wild feel comes home to roost. More oak, a bit tannic, a bit harsh as we finish. This didnít work all that well for me
