4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep burgundy with a thin tan head. Aroma of funky brett, cherries, leather, and barnyard fruitiness. Taste is cherry, plum, nutty toasted malts, and oak. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Finish is pleasantly acidic with a restrained sourness. I wasn’t sure I’d ever like a sour beer. This brew is delicious, and has changed my mind.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours crystalline mahogany with thin beige head. The aroma has a ton of oak, much like weak whisky, is a bit sour, and has a bit of grassy hops. The flavor is largely molasses and oak, with just a little bit of a vegetal note. It’s pretty sour, but not overwhelmingly so. Could be more graceful, but not bad.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a clear, medium ruby with a rather short-lived beige head. I really enjoyed the aroma coming out of this... sour cherries, vinous notes, oak, and a little metal. Flavor didn’t have as much appeal... the same components were in there as the aroma, but flavors were rather muddled, most of the sourness seemed metallic, and it could’ve used a bit more carbonation. Finish was somewhat sticky with oak and sour berries. Decent for the style... but not any more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very transparent, copper/mahogany with a quickish tan head. Plenty of funk in the aroma, vinous with sour cherry and a hint of oak. Mild, bittersweet and musty flavor (on the dry side) to start, but then the yeasts emerge in an explosively sour finish. Astringence abounds with acidity and prickly effervescence. Not sure why, but I feel rather perverted as I may be starting to enjoy this style.

Huge foamy head,, different label ? Red color. Nose was woody and . Oh GOD, This is a sour freakin’ brew. Why oh god why? This could make me stop drinking. Even mouth fulls of salsa can’t was the rotten milk taste from my mouth. I usually research the brews before I sample, not this time.
