3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 166 purchased at Malvern brewpub. Second bottle I've had and both were very similar to one another. Pours a medium brown with an inch of white head and a touch of lacing. Fabulous fruity aroma with mild vinegar oak and lemon. Mouthfeel is very light; like drinking diet coke. Taste is under powering and underwhelming. Mainly water minerals and a dialed down version of the nose. Wish the taste matched the aroma. That would have made a world class beer. Could have used more time in the barrels to sour this guy up.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an amber/ruby with a medium off white head. Aroma has tart red fruits...cherry, raspberry...oaky/vinous depths. Flavor follows suit...very nice vinous/tart oak with a touch of oaky spice...fruit is tart yet mellow...very earthy...light red wine notes. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry vinous/oaky finish. Fabulous beer!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 179/300 shared by Ed5388 during Belgian Pumpkin brewday. Poured a muddy medium brown with lighter brown edges and a smaller foamy beige head. Aroma is both wild and sour, loads of lemons, cherry, wet wood, wild flowers, honey, white wine and band aid. Acetic body, vinegar burn, medium mouthfeel with softer carbonation and a lingering aftertaste. Flavor of balsamic vinegar, wine, berry, flower petals, sour lemons. Good stuff with a lot going on.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle (179/300). Pours a dirty amber/brown color with a finger and a half of foamy off white head. Wasn't sure what to expect from this beer, but wow I was surprised. Aroma of sour dark fruit, red wine notes, lactic, funk, musty oak. Much like a Flanders. Taste is big on the lacto and brett, some wood, dark fruits, and red grape skin.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown body, large off-white head, soapy lacing. Big vinous presence with dark fruits, leather, a little earth, must, and lactic acidity. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation, pleasant acidity. A solid effort.
