3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a ruddy red/brown color, with a tiny cream head that disappears. Aromas of heavy oak, dark fruit, funk, and whiskey. Taste is more of the same, with a dominating bourbon taste and a finish crowned with layers of oak and fruit. Very complex, sour, and very tasty.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared by a kind soul in a location remote to my dining room.
The beer pours a very purple color with a small but well retained head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is a bit of balsamic vinegar, some oak, and a bunch of tart berries.
The flavor is very tart with a nice blueberry character though out . It’s sour, and oaky and the acetic character is pretty well controlled. The beer is largely dry with a very low level of bitterness.
A nice one, one that I’m going to look forward to trying year after year these beers get distributed in our market once New Holland heads our way.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This rating is based on a 2014 bottle. Poured into snifter. Pours a brown with hints of red sparkling underneath. Head is white and two fingers and leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma - a touch of oak, tart/sour berry, some sour apple, and funk. Taste - sour grape, cherry, touch of vanilla underneath and more funk. Well balanced between funk, tartness, and sweetness with the balance towards the first two (just the way I like it). This is excellent and I’m glad I have another one in the cellar.

On tap somewhere in Asheville. Slightly tart blueberry mash. Little else to the nose. Pretty syrupy and sugary. Some acidic fruit skin tang. Medium body, full on the palate. Decent stuff.
