3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Ithaca booth at BCTC. Pours a murky brown with a thin white head. Big sour bretty nose with some vinegar hints. Doesn’t live up to the nose though, but still has some nice sour notes, and a lot of promise. Seems like it would get better with time perhaps.

[Cask @ BCTC 09] Murky brown red color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of tart grapes, wild yeast, light vanilla, toast, oak, light vinegar, and leather. Taste of dark fruits, wood, vanilla, berry skin, bourbon, tart cherry, acidic, and a sour finish.
