LtDan (1805) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - NOV 6, 2012
On tap at the brewery.
Appearance: Pours a bright amber orange.

Aroma: Tangerine, perfume, funk.

Taste: Sweet cherry tartness, light toast, burnt sugar, fruity finish.

Mouthfeel. Thick with low carbonation.

Overall: I would hope this is what an infected batch of Double DBA would turn out to be. A lovely experiment either way.

[ Tap ][ 4oz ][ FW Barrelworks ][ $2.50 ][ Tasting Snifter ][ 2.22.15 ]
>> Reginald Brett. Deeper orange pour, weak bubbles. Stickier nose, Red IPA like with pine, sap, sawdust, cherry gummybears. Huh. Taste is salty, a tad bland, tea, oak, light tamarind. Firmer acidity as it warms and much more present oak. Develops nicely in the glass into a mix of salty, sweet, and sour. After about 30-45 minutes this one really cleaned up to a refreshing amber sour.

slowrunner77 (6403) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2014
"funks up the normal double double quite nicely. "bretted" for 4 months, this has a subtle barnyard fruityness to it that accompanies the imperial pale ale well."

Gription79 (2409) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Had on draft unfiltered at the brewery. Dry, tannic, fruity yeast aroma, bready, slight tartness/wheat beer like, better than the bottle.
Earlier Rating: 12/7/2013 Total Score: 3.9
Had on draft at Barrelworks. Raisin, toffee, minimal wild charater, slightly vinous, chocolaty. Tasty beer.

Prufrockstar (1329) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Draft at last drop. God bless Seattle beer week. Aroma is sour tart, caramel, fruit. Murky light amber, khaki head, some retention, no lacing. Taste: lightly tart - nice caramel, fig fruity sweetness with appropriate bitterness at the end. Slick texture, nearly syrupy, full body, light carbonation. Overall: love getting to try any and all barrel aged fsw offerings. This is nice, not quite as intense as some of the offerings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thome50 (1160) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - APR 14, 2013
Reginald Brett - Strong Wild Ale @Bottleworks. Pours a hazy copper with a big white head. Aroma is slightly lactic sour with not a lot more going on. Taste is malty with a very slight sour tone around the 2/3 point of the taste. Cinnamon, vanilla and some odd fruit go on too. The fruit comes out more as the beer warms. Not really enough sour to call it one but it is just a brett beer so the lack of bugs means the sour notes are spot on.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2013
On tap at Black Squirrel. Cherry in the nose and faint earth. Flavor is cherry, light woodiness, and moderate lactic acidity. A bit of funk in the background.

DesertDevil (609) - Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2013
On tap at World of Beer - Tempe. Hazy dark orange color with zero head. Aroma of SweeTarts, slight tangelo, and a tiny bit of tanginess for balance. Slightly sweet tropical fruit flavor that’s somewhat tart without being sour. The bourbon character from the Double DBA becomes much more apparent as the beer warms. Dry, almost gritty finish with a pleasant sweet aftertaste.
