3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 mL bottle. Brilliantly clear golden with a thick cap of white head that leaves nice soapy lacing in the glass. Big rustic funk on the nose, earthy, vanilla infused barrel, some cider vinegar, woodsy hop and a little spicy phenol. A kerosene tone on the very back end. Opens with a slight malt presence and then quickly turns to heavy handed acidity. Finishes barrel tinged and even lightly bittered. Light to modest body with a creamy palate. Moderate plus carbonation and a long lingering finish that verges on oily.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep golden amber, frothy head. Has the expected apple cider vinegar and balsamic aromas. Mouth puckering sourness initially - strong vinegar, only a little green apple. A welcome slightly sweet lemon taste comes through to take the edge off the sourness. Very prickly acidity on the tongue. More enjoyable than many sours I’ve had.

Best before is written 11/12/16 on bottom of back label. Pours a clean golden colour with a soapy white head, decent retention and bubbly lacing. Nice sour nose giving notes of vinegar and sweet white grapes. The sourness is most of the flavours, but a little chemical plastic and metal kind of ruin the fun in the finish. Grain lingers. Alcohol is well-hidden in the mouthfeel. Just wish the taste would be better balanced.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours gorgeous golden yellow, slight haze, a frothy white head. Nose is kind of lactic and tart, a little horsey funk, woody notes. Flavor is very tart and sour. Lots of lemon, lactic acid, but also a little fruitiness, some vanilla, cider vinegar, wheaty grains. Very very tart, medium body, lively carbonation. Not terribly complex, but very tart with good funk and flavor.
