4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at TJís Everyday, Paoli, PA. Superb sour ale. Poured the color of dark tea, with very minimal head that disappears completely. Wonderful aromas of oak, barnyard, vinegar, sour cherry, and toast. Aromas strengthened and multiplied as beer warmed. Terrific body. Astringent finish. Alcohol content completely imperceivable.

On tap at Russian River. Pours slightly porterish color. Aroma is port, sour cherry, lemon, roast, caramel. So much complexity. Taste is sour cherry, coffee, and roast fading into lemon juice, lemon zest, long finish.

10/14/2014. From bottle. Medium brown with a tan head. Funky sour aromas with hints of wine and oak. Not overly sour, but very balanced and complex. Truly an awesome beer.

Great beer. Cellared for four years. The sour flavor is pretty subtle, but itís there.

i liked it, but i havenít had a good bottle of consecration since then. the nose was like creamed black cherries, prickly barnyard and Rodenbach-like flemish red yeast with a heavy wood presence and it seemed to be around 7-8%, but recent bottles are a mess: aspirin/vitamins/minerals/gravel combined with excessive alcohol..

No retention and no lacing. Smells of black current, sour fruits and oak. Tastes of sour cherries, oak and wine. Sour aftertaste.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is probably as close to a perfect beer as Iíll get. Pours dark plum with limited head and limited lacing. Nose is black currents and some candy. Flavours of candy, black currents, maybe some strawberries, sour. Taste is light/med sweet medium sour limited bitter. Full sticky body with a long sour aftertaste. Wow.

Bottle. Pours ruby mahogny in color with an off-white head. Dark fruits, garden apples, some oak and barrel notes and bit of funky cherries in aroma. Nice one so far and even if it feels quite complex itís very balanced somehow. The first sip introduces some cherries and dark fruits mixed together with notes of red wine, bit of spices as well. Vinegar and funky notes appears later on. Nice tasting on the whole with some vinous plums and bit of tart fruity notes in the end.
