4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep amber pour with a 1 finger, creamy beige head, that has great retention and leaves respectable lacing. Nice, funky and fruity aroma, nutty notes, vinous notes, nectarines, toast and a fruity floral acidity, sort of like rose hips, or something of that nature. Flavor is sweet and tart stone fruit, grilled peaches, earth, nutty notes, floral notes, toasty wood, yeasty spice and a tart, nutty and fruity finish. Light to medium body with a dry, slightly oily entry, leading to a dry, slightly astringent finish.

Lacking notes. Aroma was funky, with oak, slight hint of vinegar. Extremely complex, funky but delicate. Awesome brew.

This one is a bit much for me. Sour and fruity. Not much of an Amber flavor. The bitter hops is completely disguised by the sour cherry like finish.

Bottle. Pours a dark reddish amber brown with a thick white head. Aromas of green Apple, oak, sour raspberries, slight booze. Taste is pretty sour raspberries up front, green Apple, funk and yeast. Earthy and oaky finish.

Not bad. Has some tart sour flavors on the front end and biscuity flavors on the finish. I remember liking this beer more than I do currently, but not bad.

750ml bottle, shared but mostly drunk by me with dinner the other night. Poured a dark ruby color with a small light tan head. Aroma was a touch of funky notes, some cherry, oak. Nice sour notes, some barrel. Sour cherries, but not supper sour, which makes it quite enjoyable to drink. Fabulous funky, slightly acidic. Nice carbonation makes this one lively from start to finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
small frothy offwhite head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. hazy thick dark amber body. aroma: light malty, citrus lemon, grape, white wine, cask wood, vinegar. if: light sweet moderate acidic acetic. ff: light sweet moderate acidic very light bitter acetic vinegar; long duration. palate: light medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, moderate astringent finish. Azedume de limão e vinagre permeado por dulçor maltado. Amargor residual bem leve no final, lembrando casca de limão e também cinzas (maior na primeira taça e menor na segunda), assim como na Cantillon Bio. Complexidade aumenta na segunda metade da primeira taça, com acidez lembrando taninos de tinto seco e azedume diminuindo. Amadeirado bem presente no paladar. Cerveja refinada, mas não recomendada para leigos/iniciantes. Bochechada, lembra groselha ao ganhar temperatura. Padrão belga. Toques picantes no último quarto da cerveja, aumentando mais ainda sua complexidade. 210 s

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle. Served in a Prairie Teku glass, the beer pours a dark amber color with about a half inch off-white head. The head didn’t stay around for too long, but there’s a good amount of lacing. I liked the aroma, the brew smells like tart cherries, caramel, green grapes, oak and vinegar. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some berries, plum and vanilla that I notice. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and has a good amount of carbonation. Surprisingly this is the first time I’ve tried this. I’ve seen it around for a long time, but for whatever reason I never picked up a bottle until recently. It’s definitely worth trying, I thought it was good. $7.99 a bottle.

Blend 8 Bottled 6/10/2011 - sat this one for a while in my cellar, time to enjoy it! Dark red amber pour with a slight white head. Nose is lactic and tannic - a touch acetic - with a touch of oak as well. Complex taste, sour and tart with some vinegar notes that blends with the dark fruit and wood character.

Draft - Light balsamic, cherry and soured malts. Clear copper with a good beige red head. Tart cherry, woody notes and light balsamic. Great local example of the style, well done.
