4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330mL thanks to t0rin0! Pours a clear deep ruby with massive yellow foam. Webby to sheets of lacing. Nose is really incredible- a decadent dessert medley of cranberry pound cake, cream sherry, flambeed dark cherries, hazelnut liquor. Taste is rich as well with cranberry dessert, bourbon barrel butteriness that is in NG Enigma and Old English Porter. Soft, subtle sourness. One of the most interesting takes on this style. Loved it!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle. Hazy brown with lacy froth. Nose is clean barnyard, lemon zest, bubblegum and marjoram. Sharp carb with a creamy body and lingering buzz. Taste is sour honeydew, lime, kiwi and tomatillo; a veritable green fruit orgy. So fresh and beautifully tart. Awesomely quaffable.

Thanks, Alum! Pours a hazed amber, little to no head. Aromas of fruit, slightly sour. Some vinegar. Yogurt. Taste is yogurty plums with sour apples. Finishes pretty sour with a decent pucker. Pretty nice.

Not really a fan of sour browns but this has changed my mind about their potential. Well-balanced on the palate (acidity vs sourness) and well-balanced flavors (fruit vs wood). Nice dry finish. Easy drinking.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
b-day beer. pours hazy light golden, pink tint, with a nice off-white head, some retention and lacing. bretty, oaky, cherries, cheese, hint of vanilla, plums, bourbon, but mostly winey red grapiness, light to medium acidity - nice profile - moderate acetic notes, some lactic and citric, very hint of toasted caramel and sweetness, grassy and aged hops feeling but also fresh cucumber-minty notes in the finish. average to moderate carbonation, light body - very oily, slightly puckering and grassy-herbal-citrusy woodsy finish. excellent!

bottle pour...opaque reddish brown...thin film for a head that has a lasting ring around the edges. aroma is mild...green apple, sour fruit, splash of caramel, and catching a touch of leather...good, but not overwhelming. flavor is solid though...tart, sour, apples, bit of wood...very ’Flanders’ like...and that’s not a bad thing. palate is very easy drinking for the style...good dryness that keeps you coming back for more, while the level of sour keeps this more than a sipper. I liken this to a toned-down enigma. starting to wonder if it is legal from a guy from Chicagoland to be such a fan of something from Wisconsin, but Dan Carey just doesn’t disappoint!
