Nice beer. It was shipped to me and I drank it without letting it settle so it might have poured more cloudy than it should have been. Tart, fruity aroma of cherries and leather. Sour taste with a nutty finish. Very drinkable for the Alch percentage. Nice.

Mega Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Very hazy red - brown beer. Bubbly pale tan head. Palate is light and crispy. A little sweet malt, touch of cream. Light Worcester sauce sourness. Tangy fruits and light brett. Light semi dry finish. Easy drinking.

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.

Medium bodied with bite, fone carbonation, drying soured fruit closure.

Bottle, generously shared by Kenny at the BIG Friday tasting. It pours deep red-brown with a tiny beige head. The nose is tangy berry, acetic, cherry skin, jammy fruits and wood. The taste is upfront tartness, cherry, raisin, currants, dried fruit, wood, good hit of acidity, mild astringency and warming alcohol with a dry, tart finish. Medium-full body and fine, prickly carbonation. Rather nice berry and good tart berry aspect.

Bottle shared during the Track Set interval of the Brokeback Revisited tasting in London. Cheers Kenny! Paired with Bob Dylan’s version. Murky amber pour with a small beige head. Nose is very tarty and dark fruit central - raisins, cherries, currants, raspberries. Some bright citric notes behind the funk give it a sweet and juicy appeal. Taste is plenty acidic with brown sugared dark fruits, black cherries, tarty and quite sticky and resinous. Very decent

Bottle (on Christmas)... Poured deep brown with mild red tones coming through and a thin head. This was nice, tart and acidic with strong berry-like, currant flavors. Wood and vinous tones as well. Some brett funk going on but mostly tart and sour when it came to yeast notes.
