(Draught) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of mustiness, herbs, horse blanker, berries, and florals. Flavor of light brett, herbs, earth, and wood with a somewhat dry finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at GABF. Pours a hazy/murky reddish brown with a sticky head. The nose is Brett forward, lots of funk and cherries. Some vinegar is noted, but not super strong. On tasting, it is pretty flabby. Lacks a backing character with oak tannins and faint vinegar, some dryness from the brett. Underbodied. Meh.

On tap at GABF 2011. Pours a murky red/brown color with a small white head. The aroma is sour oak and light vinegar. The flavor is a tart berry, lots of oak, quite thin, light vinegar. The thin body isn’t really compensated for. A nice brew, quite mellow.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint at the brewery. Pours a deep red color. The aroma is fruity with notes of tart cherries, lactic funk and oaky smoothness. The palate is medium with a very smooth flavor: fruity funk, lactic bite. It’s very nice and balanced. Sour enough to be flavorful and give it some cajones, but not over the top.
