3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle. A barleywine that goes for the tart fruits in relation to the caramel malts, and it surprisingly works, slightly oxidized but seems like a newer vintage.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle, shared by jtclockwork at RBSG. Bottle has been sitting around for a bit. Hazy orange amber color. Good grapefruit, light spice aroma. Some yeast. Nice tart. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Moderate dry texture. Awesome kind of soft but smooth enjoyable sour brown... Iím thinking that this sitting around for a bit helped it a lot. Super smooth and soft in a good way. Good now that itís sat around for hours. Still tastes carbonated, surprisingly.

Bottle, thanks for sharing! Pours a hazy amber with a tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has sour red fruits with underlying notes of sweet grain and toffee. Flavor has an odd combo of sour red fruit with some earthy sweet grains and toffee.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle share from JTclockwork. Golden amber pour, lots of white straw thin head. Aroma, acidic, aluminum, a bit of fruit yikes. Taste, holy fuck this is bad...ok not that bad, but not good, some tin, fairly acidic, certainly gets more quaffable as each sip but initially it was like someone stepped on land-mine of battery acid inside my mouth. Overall, not bad but not great.

Bottle - Lots of funk and cheesy feet. Cloudy copper with a rich bubbly head. Funky band aid, apricot, metallic with a long finish. First sip is horrible, but it gets better. Still not great, but give it a few and it gets ok.
