3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to dogday. Hazy red pour with a small head that fades to a nice thick ring. Aromas are strong oak, mint, sour berries, and light barnyard. Taste has a bunch of wood like the aroma. Lemon and vanilla too with hints of red wine, sour red fruit, mint, and leather. Good stuff but not as good as the other barrelworks stuff.

Tap at Toronado Seattle.
My second favorite of the night to the mighty BFM Abbeye ’13. Lovely american sour red with a ton going on, rich barrel character but it’s just that, barrel character, not barrel-additive where the oak comes on like flavor in flavored coffee. Firestone Walker continues to impress as one of America’s best breweries.

375ml bottle shared by John. Poured a hazy reddish amber color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of slight funk, sour fruit, and caramel malt. Taste mimics the nose with lots of sour citrus, and some oakiness.

Bottle... Pours hazy and amber with a small, creamy white head. The aroma is funky, acidic, bready and stupid fruity, boasting a ton of sour, citric fruitiness. Medium-bodied with pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is tart, fruity and yeasty. Notes of cracker malt and toffee. Finishes tangy and bready. Bottle courtesy of 50belair!
