FoBAB 06; Not many notes on this one...because it was soapy, syrupy, bland, and yucky.

Poured a deep, dark mahogany without much of a head. (And that is just about where the similarities to Govnor’s <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/govnors-public-h end.) A tart fruit-and-funkiness covers all but a sliver of the malted character that claimed dominance in the base beer. I see that cranberries account for the "berriness" I so deftly accounted for in my notes. Smooth with a dry finish, this was a nice BA offering that wasn’t as alcohol-dominant as many others at a festival focused on barrel aged beers.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2006
My favorite beer aroma after the bitterness of hops is the funky sourness of a Brett-ed up beer, and this was that. It smelled of sour cherries, cranberries, soft caramel, and wilting flowers. The mouthfeel was dry and itchy, adding to the sensation of sour cranberries, tart berries, all having a nutty, woody touch to them. Very nice.

FoBAB 2006. Again one of the more novel beers of the day. Notes of caramel and sour cherry on the nose lead into walnut, cranberry, gooseberry, Belgian funk, and a tart finish. My notes are more sporadic on this one, but I enjoyed it. Nice work, and a bit of surprise. I don’t think I would have used a ticket on it if not for first trying a friend’s sample.
