3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ RBSG 2015. Hazed amber colored beer with some off-white foam. Aromas of charred oak, grape skin, and some red wine vinegar. Has a bit of berry and lemon peel, maybe some grass, mushroom, and caramel. Pretty interesting. There’s a mild sweetness on the tongue, but quickly overcome by the sourness of lemon and some acetic qualities. Moderate fruitiness, tannic and oaky finish, and some mild funk. Pretty nicely done.

Bottle. Pours brown with a ruby tint, soft white head. Smells like a brown ale that has been soured (surprise!). The sourness is most apparent, though there is an unmistakeable brown ale aroma underneath. Tastes similar. Most noticeable is its medium tartness. Medium bodied, average carbonation, tart finish.
