Bottle. Pours cloudy chestnut, small tan bubbly head, good lacing. Aroma is malts and earthy yeast, caramel, cardboard, Windex. Flavor is initially light sweet, drying out at turning light tart, sharp funkiness, biting, earthy. English mild roots are apparent. Woody tannins. Medium body. Odd, but not bad.

Draft. Ominous brown-black pour. Black licorice lends an acidic bite, smells like twizzlers, mild sourness. Murky oak, not for me.

Excited to try this one at the Jester King party. The fact the line for it was way shorter than the others was a huge bonus. Brown pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are quite complex and very enjoyable. I get a good bit of cherry and grapes as well as some oak, light vinegar and light tartness. There is also a slight hint of funk but it is well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice sour.

Not the most Flemish-like sour, but good in it’s right. Roasty and dry, with a pleasing sour quality.
