3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent oaken brew. Pours brown with a faint off-white head. Aroma is woody with basement funk. Taste is funky, malt, slightly sweet. It also has a fermented fruit kind of note going on too. Finishes nice, sweet, and mostly dry. Overall, it’s not grand slam, but it does have some nice interesting qualities.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2006 Malty fruity complex flavour that’s lightly sour. Great beer, the only problem was I only had a 250ml bottle...
Rerate: 2006-02-09 Not nearly as good this time, lighter body and hardly sour at all 13/20.

Nice red/brown colour with a thin light tan head that lasted the duration of the sampling. Aromas of cherries, oak, and belgian yeast. The taste is great. Sour cherries, oak almost red winelike highlights, big carbonation, nice quick finish. Very nice

First of all this is defo not my go to style. MJ500 brought me here. Sours have interesting aromas and flavors but are simply not my thing. This one has a nice ruby color, sourdough and tart (already) aroma. Flavor is breads sour cherry and maybe wood. A bit watery and the finish is rather abrupt. Not bad for the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very subtle spice and fruit flavors overshadowed by a sour, tart flavor. Not an especially strong flavor. It has almost no head and pretty nice lacing. Also slightly acidic with a carbonated moutfeel. The nose is not very big. Not bad.

11.2oz. bottle served in a new style Boulevard Chalice. Bottle conditioned. Brown with some red highlights. Sparse head. Not a lot of carbonation. Fruity aroma with some cherry. A bit of acetic sourness in the nose as well. Fairly sweet in the flavor however. More dark fruit and some caramel. Just a hint of sourness. A little metallic in the finish to start, but this faded. Didn’t get much wood flavor. This didn’t do a whole lot for me.

330ml bottle into tulip. Pretty decent for the style. Nice aroma, fruit and sit notes. Typical appearance. Body was a little thin. Flavor less complex than expected.
