4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On Tap, Pours a mahogany color with a light off white head with decent lacing. Smells of currents oak and and other dark fruits. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is heavy and surupy with pretty good carbonation and a dry finish. Overall this is a great sour too bad this is probably the last time in a while I’ll have it because they pulled distribution out of this state.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep mahogany brown with ruby edges a lil eggshell fizz that rises and settles quickly. On the nose are deep vinous cabernet notes of dark tart ripe berry, rustic wood, with touches of chocolate undertones. The palate is just as complex with lots of grapey fruit, tart sour cherry and woodsy earth funk. Lots of vineyard character mixed with wild yeast notes.... great finish. YUM !

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle - corked & caged 375 ml - Night of the Titans 2013) Hazy golden pour with a puffy white head. Wonderful tart and sour aroma with a light sweetness from the cab sauv barrel and the currants. Flavor is mildly sour, not over powering but more than enough to know that it’s there, and a light oaky sweetness at the end. Smooth and easy to drink with a great sour aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours dark plum with a cream head. Very effervescent, persistent carbonation. Aroma is fruity, light and tart. Taste is very well balanced. Not overly sour, but nice and sweet tart. Very vinous in a very pleasing way with a nice juicy balance.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle from Capones. Pours an almost clear ruby-mahogany with a thin finger of off-white head. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind a touch of lace. Aroma is a mix of sour dark fruits and currants with some Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, oak, earthy smells, and just a touch of booze. Starts off with a mix of strong sour currants and dark fruit with some dark grapes, vanilla, and a touch of tobacco. Through the middle, oak flavors come through with some more dark fruits with some sour cherries and plums. The finish is a mix of sour dark fruits, dark grapes, oak, some earthy flavors, and some booze. Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sour and warming finish. Once the palate adjusts a balance masterpiece of a sour that only gets better with every sip. One of my favorites.
