Draft at Churchkey, courtesy of Greg - thank you sir! Bright amber color, scant head. Aroma of whiskey. Taste is boozy caramel, oak, wood. Not much evidence of brett, but nicely complex, good character. Would like to see what happens if the brett is given more time to work.

Growler shared by shigadeyo. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy sour, bourbon and vanilla woody aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & bourbon flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had it on tap at the brewpub, smells amazing, the flavor is a bit muddled, it is mildly sour, not too much bourbon, but it was pretty good. It will probably be bottled soon and be some kind of whale. It is nice to have it when there isn’t as much hype surrounding it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Rattle N Hum. It pours amber with almost no head and carbonation. The nose is red apple, red grape, candyfloss and sweet pear. It is quite thin and taste is dominantly of sweetened cranberry, red apple, lemon sherbet and red grape. I expected it to taste sour and as such was left disappointed with the overall sweet flavour.
