3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A selfish pour from 750 bottle into my trusty JK snifter. Primarily orange with gold edges. Topped by a few large bubbles, but no fine carbonation or head to speak of. A hearty swirl brings a few bubbles back to the top, but they fade quickly. Smells of sour funk, pineapple, whiskey, orange and vanilla. Taste is warm whiskey, hay, sour apple, earth, ripe red grape, barely sour pucker at the end. This would be an outstanding beer with reasonable carbonation (a sparkly finish). More time in the bottle would be quite advantageous, too.

Bomber bottle. Aroma is wild yeast with some funk. Appearance is a hazy gold. Taste is a funky, sour beer. Straight up. Palate is sour. Overall, a decent sour, but still not quite right.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on tap at Jester King Brewery in Austin, TX. Appearance is a rich gold with a thin white rim. Aroma of light Brett, champagne like, smells light but nice. Taste I think is fantastic, expected this to me more sour than it is, I find it crazy that this is pushing 11% ABV because it doesn't taste like it. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours reddish with a white head. The aroma has berries, vinegar, big maltiness for a sour ale, lemons and some cherries. It has a fairly full body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with thick chewy bready malt, cherries, vinegar, caramel and spices. The finish shows some oxidation and sourness. Tastes a bit like an American strong ale that has gone sour. Pretty good.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle from Errl from way back. Thanks dude! Pours a hazy copper color with a white head of foam. Good retention. The aroma has notes of grapefruit pith, pineapple, and must. The taste is a touch astringent, but the pineapple tanginess wins out. Nicely sour. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Stumbled across an old bottle of this and was glad I did. Nice strong earthy and wood aromas. Bold flavors of oak, must, sour grains and funk with a mix of fruit. Great balance with a smooth and dry finish. Complex.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Batch 5 Sept 5, 2013
Pours amber hazed with an etched top. Smells spicy, touch of licorice, some sage - dig it. Flavor is tits: spicy once again, some aspirin, some grain, some apricot, a bit of tartness. Again, nice. Mouth is medium on thin with some limited carb (partly due to my constant stirring and sniffing). I like this beer. It reminds me of some of the Upright beers, I know I like it, but I can’t tell you exactly what makes me love it.
