I tasted this a while back, and I just now found my notes: "Red-brown color. Rich brandy and dried apricot aroma. Lightly sour, lightly bitter flavor. A perfect ending for the night."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mild nose, mostly just hints of peat and just a hint of brett. Flavor was mild on the scottish, which was nice, brett ate up most of the sweetness, end product was dry and drinkable with a nice level of hay.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stone Sourfest. Amber hue with no head. Nose is sweet malts mostly, very faint tart fruits. Flavor is mostly the base malty kiltlifter, hints of tart fruit and bret sourness are mostly overwhelmed here, some alcohol warmth in the sweet finish. This could use more aging and/or Bret, the malts are still the primary flavors here.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Belmont Station’s first Barrel Aged Monday. Appearance is a weird light hazy brown. Aroma is slightly sweet but with a little sour edge. Flavor is lightly sweet malts, caramel, with a nice tart apple edge. Yum! Slightly funky, mostly a little apply, hops are barely noticeable. This was a treat.

Tap at Toronado SD. That’s why this brew was different, Brett. Pours hazy red/brown with a thin offwhite head that leaves specks of lace. Smells like a sour, fruity, sweet and musty. Kind of bland. Tastes sour and fruity for sure. Sweet with some lingering weird flavors, must and dishtowel. Coating, medium body with low carbonation.

Tap at Toronado 2nd anny. Hazy deep copper color with a very small off white ring. Nice nose of light tart brett notes, some tart cherry notes as well. Pretty damn tasty.
