4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured at Falling Rock after GABF at DrBill’s tasting, 3 different blends of the same brew poured by the brewer herself. This one held nice funky notes to balance out the bigger tart notes than two but not as much as one. Aroma overall was a huge tart lemon, some nice funky barnyard notes with some grape, red fruit, toffee notes as well. Taste was a big mouth puckering lactic sour but also some big funky barnyard notes to balance the sour, some sweet grape and red fruit also balance, but the sour comes back and keeps your mouth puckered. This one was the best balanced.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Falling Rock, served by Lauren Salazar after the last session of GABF. Pours with a murky amber brown body with minimal head. All of the samples were of similar color. All showed red wine and oak notes with good acidity. Number 3 was probably my favorite followed by number 1. Number 3 showed a soft cherry notes with some good fruit and maltiness on the aroma. Quite a bit rougher on the acid (mostly acetic) than #2, but had more character overall (in both funk, acidity and fruitiness). Low carbonation. Dry, acidic finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught) Pours a hazy amber-orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of cherries, vinous, wet wood, and horse blanket. Flavor of cherries, wood, and very acetic that finishes bone dry.
