Bottle. Pours a hazy deep brown colour with a huge long lasting beige head. Aroma of spices, toasted malt, yeast and dark fruits. Good mouthfeel. Sweet toasty spiced flavour with dark fruits, some sourness and bitter hops. Toasty spiced and sour finish. Reminds me a bit of a lambiek.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really a one-of-a-kind beer. Dark reddish-brown with an off-white rocky head. Vinuous, yeasty, dry roast aromas -- cherry fruit. Astringent, with a sour, drying finish. Pit fruit: cherries, plums, figs. Rustic caramel and dark toast provide a healthy malt backing for the bitter hops and sweet fruits. There’s a lot going on in here, but deciphering all of the flavors and components is extremely worthwhile. A great, unique strong ale that brings all of the assertiveness of a sour ale into play.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 from Once Upon a Vine, Richmond. An odd beer in many ways, almost a combination of a smoky bock beer and a Flemish sour. It certainly looks like the latter, with a cloudy red body and a big billowing head. But there’s a dry smoke amidst the musk, and to me it doesn’t quite blend well enough with the sour apple. Still, enjoyable enough.

Appearance: clear dark ruby, big creamy beige head that fades but comes back at a moments notice and sticks around a while, lots of scattered lace,
Aroma: lightly sweet dark caramel and toffee aroma with dark fruits,
Flavor: rich dry dark caramel malt flavor, touch of smokey character mixed with a light earthy bitter finish, just a hint of sweetness adds balance and complexity, the dark caramel just keeps getting richer and picks up a toffee character which takes over from the caramel, touch of dark fruit, the earthy character keeps growing, a touch of tartness shows up at the bottom of the second glass

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very murky light brown colour with a large-bubbled thick head that retains rather well. The aroma is of fig and berries, light chocolate, tart cherry and yeast. The flavour is dark pitted fruit, a bit of plastic, bitter hops, tart cherry, toasted malts and a bit of coco. The palate is medium bodied and tingly, messaging the tongue. Long, bitter, tart finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark ruby body topped by a large beige head. Creamy body filled with toasted malts flavour. Fruity (raisins, blackberries, etc.), rather nutty (hazelnuts, pecan, peanuts, etc.), doughy yeast, moderately sweet. Came out like a cross between a raisin pie and a pecan pie. The carbonation was overly lively but I still very much enjoyed the mouthfeel. You know you enjoyed a beer when you’re not tired of it after a 750ml and even feel like opening another one. I’m surprised to see mostly low ratings on this one. Looked down by most I find this beer to be a lot of fun. Call it a guilty pleasure. That and watching pro-wresling. There, I said it.
