3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft sample. Poured a cloudy brown color with a mostly diminished frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy sour, yeast and tart fuirt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour tart fruit whiskey flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout complex beer for style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft sample at Cincy Beerfest. Pours a cloudy caramel brown color with a small off white head. The aroma has tart, fruity notes, wood, bourbon, caramel; all working well together. The flavor is more of the same; caramel malt base with tart fruits, wood, bourbon, lightly acidic, all very drinkable. No real hint that this was 10%.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample on tap at Cincy brewfest. Murky brown color. Very little head. Good, light crisp carbonation. Dry finish. Surprisingly light body. Nice big woody flavorful aroma - not over the top with the sourness, good balance. Some lightly sweet caramel malt. Complex; delicious
