2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 ML bottle
Radiant but murky reddish brown color. Fast fading light brown head. No collar left. No lacing.
Nose is very straightforward. Acid. Some oak, dark fruits, cola, and acid.
Taste is dark fruits. Prune and dark cherry. Oak and lactic acid. Prickly but drops off fast. Little bit of funk and vinegar in the mouth. Acid finish. One dimensional. Not that great.

Bottle shared. Pours oily red cola like. Doesn’t look great. Brandy, slightly fruit, some paint. Only slightly sour. Sweet honey background. Not a great sour.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at OEC SourFest, 8/15/15.
Drab olive-chestnut-beige body shows good clarity and a wispy, light beige head that sits around at cover.
Dry, dominating lactic notes in the nose allow some dry caramel, earthy/crusty brown bread-like grain notes and light wood character as well. Some light fruitiness sits on the finish, with plentiful acidity and perhaps a touch of alcohol and vanilla fume.
Extraordinarily dry, astringent flavors show pure lactic acid tartness mixed with dry, grainy, astringent oaky notes and dry, minimal caramel. Absolutely no comfort from the malts, which seem to be completely non-existent here. Horribly out-of-balance, too dry, astringent and with little more than just oak, caramel and lactic acid. Yikes....
