Bottle 394 of 1200. Murky oxidized brown. Floating chunks that aren’t yeast. Earthy cherry, sweeter caramel malts. Light balsamic, earthy tart cherry, cloying sweet malt. Infected, but what do you expect? It’s Paradox..there is a reason they only do sours these days.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Swing top bomber. Pours dark ruby brown with almost zero head. Mild aroma of a brown sour and very ripe cherries. Weird beer. Kendra says it tastes like green olive juice. It does have sour ale notes, slight vinegar, hints of tannins, ripe cherries, tart berry and funk.

Taste is woody and winey, some tartness. Woody finish with a vinegar and sour note and some puckering in the mouth. Tasted better than it smelled, but wasn’t a huge fan of this beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml swingtop. According to phaleslu, this was shared by b3shine, bottle 334/1200. According to my notes, I loved it. Last pour from the bottle. Hazy brown / red color. Lots of particles of yeast. Nice thin off-white head. Dots and short ropes of lace. Robust, blackberry, raspberry, light dark chocolate aroma. Smooth, very light carbonation, kind of creamy. Lightly dry finish. Good bigger tart taste. Light to moderate sweet, nothing close to cloying. Had no idea going into it what this was supposed to be. But as a dark, malty sour... It’s pretty good
