3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 75 cl. Pours reddish amber in color with a dense tan head. Vinegar notes in aroma, sour fruits too and some wooden oak barrels notes in aroma as well. A bit of vanilla spicyness is there too and some
light funky/earthy notes steps forward after a while. Sour and fruity in taste, some sweeter notes as well are present. A bit of vinegar and tart apple notes in taste. Sour and tart for sure, but in not in a
overwhelming way. A bit of tart sherry oak vinous vibes towards finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl bottle, vintage 2010. Dark redish brown with a white, thin but lasting head. Vinegar, sour aroma with some barnyardy notes and dark fruits. Flavor is surprisingly sweet with strawberries, wood and mild tartness later on. Finish is dry and quite sour with more wood coming through. Didn’t really loke the sweetness, but overall an enjoyable beer. Almost full bodied.

Slutfest! 2010 bottling, and for me, probably the highlight of the whole thing. Medium amber. Light cherry and wood aroma, very inviting. Flavor is a match. And totally awesome. Not doing a good job on descriptors here, but this was just a beautiful brew. Lovely.
