3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tastes like Red Poppy. Smells like Red Poppy with a bit of caramel. A bit Consecration-y. Sourness peaked at a 5. Not really noticing more brett. Alcohol masked well. One finger dirty peach head, fair retention. See my review of Red Poppy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Currants, cherries, and other Consecration ingredients lament their lives for not being included in that beer. A pretty good sour that falls pretty far short of greatness. Hard to give it respect with tracks 7, 3, and 1 also in the box.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
BottleÖ This beer rocks!... Deep, dark, crimson pour with a small, creamy, beige head. The nose is an interwoven tapestry of sour cherries, oak, port, black currants, brown sugar and dark raisins with a suggestion of vanilla. Medium-bodied with a dry mouthfeel and faint carbonation. The flavor is fruity, vinous and super tart; presenting boozy, acidic pinot noir. Warming, tangy, lactic finish. World class brew!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pours with a murky brackish amber sort of brown hued body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up rich earthy currants, a modest degree of cherry tartness and then faint yeastiness. Wow, this smells terrific as Iím really enjoying the currant and earthy notes. The taste delivers currant and cherry tartness with a pleasing thick currant and cherry meat sensation moving into some red wine like tartness. Wow! Between these flavors is an earthy note that helps keep together and ground the whole experience. Delicious.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at the Santa Cruz boxset tasting. Aroma like Consecration, lightly acetic with currants at the fore, some cherries and pixie stix candied notes, barnyard funk. Flavor is heavily acetic, with minor off notes of metal and astringency. Finish just vanishes.
