brokensail (11230) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks, Chris. Dark amber color pour with an off-white head. Aroma is quite sour and fruity. Some red wine vinegar, cherry, and Jolly Rancher. Lots of apple and lemon. Some caramel, too. Flavor has a subtle nuttiness which is kind of weird with the intense sourness. Lots of acetic and lactic character to this. Fruity cherry and Jolly Rancher. Some carame, oak, and lots of green apple.

Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration.

hopscotch (9365) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and dark mahogany with a small, fragile, off-white head that’s gone in a flash. The aroma is fruity, vinous and earthy – cherries, oak, wet leather, and tangy-dry red wine. Medium-bodied and watery with feather-soft carbonation. The flavor offers sour, fruity red-raspberries and sour cherries accompanied by whispers of earthy, berry-skin tannins and faint bitterness. Super-tart, sandpapery, bone-dry finish. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!
