10th September 2008. Sour start but thankfully not dominated by sourness as the oaky notes reign it in. Fairly dry and bitter finish. Not beer nirvana for moi!

Blind tasting with tarheels86, thank you sir. Dark maroon color, solid tan head, good lacing. Aroma of citrus, caramel, anise. Taste is sour, plenty of summer fruits, cinnamon. Great complexity and character. This should be classified as a sour ale, not a Belgian strong. Wonderful beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is dark amber/brown in color with a finger’s worth of off-white head and plenty of carbonation bubbles.
S: A blend of acetic and lactic acids on the nose along with some sour cherries and other dark fruits such as plums and berries. Quite a bit of oak as well.
T: Sour cherries and blackberries up front provide quite a bit of tartness along with some red wine vinegar and tannic oak. A slight citrus quality at points, too.
M: The body is medium with plenty of carbonation and a dry and puckering finish.
D: A nice sour ale, though leaning a little bit more on the vinegar side of things than I would prefer, but still in balance.
