Bottle pour with a golden orange color and thin/medium white head. Nice fruity sour nose with some funkiness. Taste was red berry fruits with a medium smooth sourness with some vinous hints. Not much to really speak of in carbonation but easy enough to drink. Really enjoyed this and cant wait to try some more from this brewery. Well done brew.

Draft. Strong apple cider, light musty barnyard, berry, and caramel malt aroma. Hazy brown with small head. Sweet-tart apple juice, light caramel malt, mild sour barnyard, and mildly bitter dry hay flavor. Body okay. Nice mix of fruit and funk.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Row 34, 5/30/16.
First pour had a decent head on it, off-white, though probably not terribly well-retained, though the bartender then took it away and poured more beer in it up to the top of the glass leaving no room for the head explaining that "since it was a $14 beer I oughta get my money’s worth". Anyhow, the body was a cloudy olive-tinged mahogany with deep violet tints.
Big, rounded oak notes combine with light acetic notes and even toffee-like maltiness to give a well-rounded nose. Tending lightly acidic. Lots of grape/prune vinousness, plentiful cellar notes (musty, strong minerals) and a fair amount of malt lingering. No alcohol or flaw.
Caramel-toffee again in the flavor is surprising. It helps balance the acetic and lightly lactic acidity and adds quite a bit of body. Plums, prunes and various vinous notes all add complexity and the carbonation is fairly engaging, yet quite low with a malty and at times oily texture. Raisins, figs, toffee and acetic acid lingering with light wood and vanilla. Very unusual and unique sour ale.
