4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml Bottle. The pour was a plum brown with a large (2-3 finger) tan creamy head that had excellent retention, receding very slowly down to a puddled cap with a large collar and fantastic sheets of sticky lacing that engulfed the entire glass.
The aroma was sweetly tart of a bold Brett yeast and a mild sweet grain malt along with notes of chocolate, dark fruit (plums and black cherry), vanilla and a slight woody scent.
The taste was sweet and acidic with a nice malty feel and a note of dark fruit from the get go, maturing into a rather sour funky yeasty taste with a mild woody presence towards the end. The flavor lasted a decent duration proceeding the swallow, with a sour fruitiness and a slight funkiness left behind.
Mouthfeel was medium in body with a slightly dry texture and a mild carbonation.
Overall this was a really fantastic tasting sour brown, which had no flavor overpowering any other. Just a nice mix of fruit and funky tartness, which blended together so well that it created this exquisite tasting brew. I will be getting more of this one, I assure you...

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750mL bottle, pours a deep dark reddish brown with a small white head. Aroma brings out Worcestershire sauce, balsamic, acidity and wood. Flavour brings out lots of tannins and red wine barrels, followed by some balsamic, a touch of sweetness and light acidity. Very tannic and earthy. Unusual and doesn’t really come together.
