Deep brown red color with a really small head, no lacing. Aroma of wood, dark fruits, brett, cocoa, roast, vanilla, and red wine vinegar. Taste of dark fruits, vanilla, wood, roast, cherries, spices, and light alcohol in the finish.

Deep amber pour no head ... aroma of brett and barnyard light malt and fruits (apple/pear) .... taste of sweet malt up front with some barnyard and dry sour/bitter brett little fruity yeast with a dry sour finish nice touch little kick to it .... an easy drinking sour not overly done pretty well balanced

On tap at Brouwer’s Big Wood 09. Poured a reddish bronze with little to no head. Anise and some lactic, fruity malts on the nose - like sour patch kids meeting good&plenty. Mostly good&plenty. Makes me cringe a little - lowest rating of the day for me.
