2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Shared 25.4 oz. bottle. Batch #9. ABV 2.9%. Pours a hazy brown with a light beige head. Aroma is vinous and tart, with some funk and very faint smoke. Taste is again vinous and tart, similar to a sour red/brown but not as intense. There is also a second completely different layer of roasted malt, with coffee notes and faint smoke, similar to a porter. Add in the wild yeast and you’ve got the makings of a rather strange concoction. It’s not bad, and it could be consumed in large quantities, but I’m not sure that’s something I’d want to do.

Aroma: sour and funky; a little fruity; Appearance: very dark amber, almost ruby red; fluffy white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: tart and sour, similar to a brown/red; pretty refreshing; Palate: medium body with long, tart finish; Overall: pretty good. Probably wouldn’t buy again with all the other options out there, but was okay.

Bottle @ Steve_0’s house. Thanks! Pour a dark orangish brown appearance with a light brown head. Aroma has nuts, celery, cooked vegetables, and caramel. A little twangy. Herbal and woody. Some toasted malt and caramel. More vegetables in the flavor. Low sweetness. Moderate low bitterness. It just tastes off all around.

Bottle at home with friends. Pour is Murky brown with a small tan head and good lacing. Caramelly, bready, lightly toasty, somewhat acidic, oaky, and peppery aroma. Taste is vinous, bready, doughy, light smoke, somewhat toasty, and grassy with a slightly bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Not good.
