4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle. Aroma has a nice, bright acidity at first but as it recedes you pick up some older notes and some light oxidation. A bit vinous with some light oak character. Light tropical fruit and stone fruit notes, but a slightly rotting fruit character. Pours a very clear, copper amber color with a medium sized, slightly off white head with never ending retention. Medium light lacing and small legs.Flavor is fairly acidic with some light vinegar notes and some medium light citrus. A medium light oak character with faint oak tannins. Some light oxidation with a hint of malt notes. Some cherry and dark berry notes with hints of stone and tropical fruit. Some moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, better than I thought it would be but it is also past its prime. Lots of fruit and more oak than I expected. Some light vinegar notes show through. A bit oxidized.

This one poured an orange color with a white head. Aroma was of dark fruits, vinegar, and light oxidation. Flavor was similar, fairly sour, Americanized sour brown, dark fruits, and light mineral character. Can tell its old, but still good.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draft pour at the Brouwers cafe 10th anniversary party. What a great way to celebrate! Pours a super fizzy orange color with a ton of head and lace. Fresh apricot and tangerine like aroma. Flavor is very much the same, which is fantastic. Has a lingering sour apricot flavor late in the palate. I donít know. Anything I could say about this beer wouldnít accurately describe how good it is. I started to wonder 8 my anticipation to try this beer finally may have swayed my judgement, and after about 2 seconds of thought, I decided no. Fantastic beer to say the least. Loved everything about it. I really hope I run into this again someday. Sum this up in one word: yes.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Complex aroma of musty oak barrels, mild horse blanket, funky red wine tannins (which becomes fairly prominent after a bit), and a hint of caramel and vanilla extract. Pours a clear light copper color. The initial taste is sharply sour, with tart Brett and vinous notes briefly emerging before a faint ripe stone fruit flavor joins the fray, capped by a very dry and acidic finish. Prickly palate. Good, but itís past its prime.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From notes. Tasted on 3/16/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle at our epic Bottleworks tasting with Curtis, Jedi, and crews from Knoxville and Nashville. Pours clear burnt orange with a thin beige head that completely disappears. The nose is very sour with tons of brett funk, and a nice malty quality that might be amplified by some oxidation. The flavor really opens up with sour lemon peel, tons of brett funk, a touch of oak, and nice malt. The body is medium with light carbonation, lots of tannin, anda very long really great sour and funky finish.
