COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Track 5 is a blend of two of our best fruited sour beers. An equal blend of Red Poppy and Framboise de Amorosa. Once the beers were blended we added additional fruit and let them rest in another set of French Oak barrels. The aroma is an explosion of red wine and oak notes. A jammy fruit presence dominates the mid-palate of the beer before a bracing tannin laced dryness pervades the finish. All told an exceptionally complex marriage between fruit, oak and red wine expressions.

Bottle @ The HUGE Tasting. The pour’s deep ruddy red with a small head. Huge juicy raspberry on the nose. Massively vibrant. Loads of personality. Buggy wood fruit leather. The taste is raspberry tart. Light acetic funky tang. Woody finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Excellent.

Mega Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Cloudy red - brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is crispy. Light malt base, a little cream. Sharp raspberries. Worcester sauce sourness, turning acetic. Light finish. Again quite tasty but too acidic to be really quaffable

Scopey (5511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle, generously shared by Kenny at the BIG Friday tasting. It pours cloudy deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is wood, earth, plenty of juicy fruits, jam, barnyard, funk and a hint of blue cheese. The taste is crisp, tart, juicy berry...cherry, rasberry, some vinegar, tangy sherbet, wood, some alcohol and acidic notes with a dry, tart finish. Some heat on the finish. Medium+ body and fine, prickly carbonation. Big, bold and fruity, yet well-balanced. Brilliant.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Bottle shared at the BIG Friday tasting, massive thanks to our Ken for sharing the entire track set and also to Bruce for providing the accompanying music 03/01/14. Murky reddish amber with a moderate light beige swirl and edgework. Nose is light fruit balsams, tangy soured dark berry fruit, musty, blueberry sour, damp wood. Taste comprises blackberry yoghurt, dark berry balsam, tarte red grape skins, light acidic qualities but subtly worked in, jammy berry fruits, lactism. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, tarte and tangy berry fruit leading to a touch of gentle puckerings in the conclusion. Nice sour - good balanced levels of acidity, fruit and dankness.

maneliquor (2782) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle shared during the Track Set interval of the Brokeback Revisited tasting in London. Cheers Kenny! Pours hazy ruby colour with a small but very lace driven beige head. Nose is bright passionfruit and citrus in front of big funk and sugar. Taste is big and funky, stewed pineapple and pear, sticky toffee and very tarty. Puckering stuff. Oddly balsamic and nice berry tart to it. Works very nicely. Decent stuff

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle shared during the Track Set segment of the First Tasting of the Year in London, big thanks to Ken. Paired correctly. Pours somewhat murky ruby with a creamy-frothy off-white head. Rich and juicy aroma, lots of tart raspberries, light sweat. Light sweet flavor, super juicy with lots of raspberry purée, light acetic burn, plums. Medium bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Good sour berry finish with more juicy raspberry, sweaty funk, faint leather. Great depth. Punchy and juicy. Loved it.

Hallon hallon. Moget hallon. Viss syrlighet men bara svagt. Tunn och lättdrucken. Härlig mousse

bytemesis (2572) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy ruby, no head, no lacing. Aroma is funk, horse blanket, grape, fruity, vinous, oaky, paint thinner. Flavor is a grape explosion, red wine, grapes, oak, some funk in the background, starts with some sweetness that dries out, medium tart, lightly funky, minimal astringence. Medium body, flat as a board. Yummy.
