3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at BCTC 2009. Pours a hazy amber with a thin head. Aroma is funky, earthy leather, old stale dry hoppiness, a bit cheesey moldy hops, funk, brett, fruit and tropical notes. Flavor is mildly acetic, funky cheesey stale hops, a bit leafy citrus leather, flowery, toast, light vinegar, and moderate caramel malts. Finish is a bit funky oily and slick.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask, @ BCTC 09. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a minimal to no head. The nose is a little sharp and not especially funky with some sour cherry, pineapple, light brett, and a little wood. The flavor is only lightly sour with a little brett, cherry, and vinegar. A little rough around the edges and lacking in crispness. The body is thinnish, almost completely still with some dryness on the finish. A fairly easy drinker, but it wouldn’t be one I’d seek out if it were bottled.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at BCTC 2009: Murky brown copper with a fading head. Spicy hop aroma with a lot of leathery brett character. Slick feel. The flavor has a citric hop character- a bit of vegetal with leathery rustic undertones. Some grainy husk from the malt is evident. Eh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
BCTC’09. The brewer said this is something he just threw together before the event, a blend of a few different wild brews. This was a cask as opposed to what a few people are writing. This was a murky thick brown color. Aroma is hefty wet wood with lots of aceto and a Swedish-fish type of sourness. More balsamic and rotten garbage in the flavor. This was exactly what it was......... a sour beer completely thrown together with no finesse. But heck it is sour.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
BCTC 09. Pours a cloudy brownish red with a smaller off white head. Aroma of wild/funky yeast, vanilla, oak, nuts and a toasted almost burnt quality. Flavor of moderate bitterness, some tart cherry, burnt toast, other fruit character and light vanilla.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at BCTC. Not a good beer. Acetone, spray paint aromas dominate the sour aroma. Tough, acrid, pineapple flavors, with a very thin, flat profile. Uncomplex and uncompromisingly caustic, this desperately needs to be blended to take off its edge.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy reddish brown. Aroma is faint sour with some cherry and wood. Very light flavor. Not quite there. Some sour, some wood, some sweetness. Almost a little brett to dry it but could use some time to dry more.
