3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle) Pours a semi-hazy reddish brown color with a medium off-white head that settles to a thin cap. Looks apple cider-like in color. Aroma of fermented refuse, oak, pepper jam, cinnamon, sweet tarts, and sour fruit. Perhaps some smoke with further warming; the scent keeps changing. Flavor holds apple cider vinegar, crushed vitamins, caramel, peaches, sweet tarts, and abundant oak towards the finish which creates a nice drying effect. Peach gets stronger with warming. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is sprightly. I haven’t been too enamored with sours recently, but this one was quite good.

Bottle pour into a New Glarus footed glass. Light on the head. Reddish brown color. Perfect amount of sourness in my book. Malt is there to finish it well too.

The happy beer fairy dropped this gem off to me, vanilla and softly tart this beer has been aged gracefully to give it a blend of cherries, vanilla, and oak. FANTASTIC SHIT

Red-brown pour with a thin white head. Aroma is sour, cherries. Taste is sour, green apple, cherries, finishes dry and sour. Oak. Sourness is just right, not puckering. Tasty beer. I am glad I bought a lot of it.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle thanks to portableparty. Dark brown pour, slightly frothy thin head and an aroma of wonderful tart woody cherries. Flavor is also nice tart dark cherries, raspberries, sour red grapes and more nice dry wood on the aftertaste. Good god what a great beer, they could ask twice as much for it and I would still buy it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 Bottle, pours murky brown with medium white head, lacing is about the same. Aroma is a mix of the most recent enigma batch and unplugged apple. Lots of cherry, oak, granny smith, cranberry and vanilla going on. Flavor is ultra tart apple skin, sweet cherry, plum, vinegar, pie crust, and berries. Carbonation is medium and so is the body. Pretty solid

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear deep red brown with persistent offwhite head. Nose is Brett with subtle plastic and faint caramel. Cherry and subtle pie spice. On tasting, intense lacto tartness, hop flavor is moderate with spice and caramel sweetness. Odd beer here, but ok.

What a fun beer. Beautiful nose. Clear, dark orangish pour, slight white head. Sour nose, more than the taste. Woody and dark fruit notes in the taste - very nice. Light, easily drinkable. Thanks for sharing Caleb!
