3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012 vintage drunk on 11/22/13. A nice Flanders Red but didnít blow me away like I had hoped it would. Has a typical Brett nose but lacks strong sour notes. The flavor also lacks in the sour department but does have noticeable barrel aged oakiness to it that isnít overwhelming. Overall a pleasant wild but not a sour that can be compared to their neighbors at Cascade.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours murky red brown with not much head. Nose is acidic, wet wood and some cherry fruit, vinous notes, light oak. Taste is high acidity, maybe a touch acetic, flanders-esque tart cherry notes with some woody vanilla. Finishes with some vinous woody dark cherry fruit, light spice, acidic. Drinks a bit like a sour red wine.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy rusty sienna color with a slight gathering of gaseous bubbles on the pour. Nose is musty cherry, some sweet malt, composted fruit, old wood. Palate follows with some nice sherry notes, tart vinegar, layers of dark fruit, just a bit lifeless on the body with no carb and slightly flabby palate !

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2012 bottle. Cloudy reddish orange pour with very little head. Aroma is apple and cherry skins, lots of oak, some vanilla, and red wine. Tastes like cherry skins and oak mostly. Some sherry, vinegar and light brett funk. Just a hint of sourness. Moderately acidic. Decent but surprisingly boring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle, dark red color with no head. I actually think this one lost its carbonation. The aroma is a funky/tart smell, but not strong enough. Taste is flat. I'll have to try this again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 2012 vintage. Slightly dirty amber color, no head. Aroma is sharp vinager and sour oak. Well let me say that I really hate this style as a whole I donít know why people enjoy drinking vinager and dirty butthole but I guess if that is your thing...... Enjoy. Thankfully this is mild on the vinager with a lightly oaky finish. Iím sure this is good for the style bit its not something I would ever reach for, especially for the price. Thanks for sharing Brian... I guess?

2012 12oz bottle. Pours cloudy amber with an off white head. Pungent aroma of tart cherry, acetic. Flavor is caramel sweet, tart cherry, cherry skin bitterness. Oak and oxidation in the finish. Thereís a lot going on here, but it just doesnít wow me.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy reddish brown color with an average frothy off-white head with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy tart berry fruit and sour yeast aroma. Copious body and a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex solid beer.
