2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle picked up in Julios on the way back from a great weekend that included NotF and BBF in Boston. Pours a hazy dirty brown with a medium to large creamy beige head. Berries hidden behind oxidized old paper, moves into a slight liqueur aroma. Sweet at the start, then sort of an ugly charred berry flavor. Ugh. How did that happen? Just tastes like burnt currants. Lots of ash. Not a ton of sourness or acid, just a lot of unpleasantness. Finishes with some more paper, flat old berries, and a bit of tang with some flavors that remind me of Indian food. Well, it looked pretty at least. Shame it all had to go down the drain.

Poured into a snifter from a 500mL bottle -- Overall a pretty decent wild ale. I wished for a little more tartness, but it’s good.
