KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a medium murky chestnut brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy light beige head, that reduced slowly to a thin layer of foam with a collar producing some mighty fine sheeting of sticky lacing. The aroma was bold and fruity with a dark bread malt and some Brett yeast along with some notes of cherry, oak and a bit of red wine. The taste was incredibly sweetly tart and very malty with a slight hint of wine in the beginning, then becoming boldly sour with a nice strong malty cherry presence and a hint of oak at the end. The flavor lasted a very long time allowing for the sour cherry wine flavor to be fully enjoyed as it relaxed on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a solid medium in body with a creamy dry texture and a carbonation reminiscent of champagne. Overall, all that has to be said is WOW what an incredible brew. This brew was most likely one of the best things I have ever put to my lips. Just sayin’...

Bottle shared with Dave for his 1 year anniversary. Dated 062212. Pours deep amber with a scant beige head. Aroma is caramel, tart cherry, acetic. Taste starts with sour cherry, oak, a touch of caramel comes in and it gets amazingly soft through the center. Finish is oak, some red wine. Really nice.

2011 version. On tap at brouwers big wood. Typical supplication. Great beer. Aged a few years so is a little more sweet. Sour has mellowed a bit.

Served into a Teku from 010714 bottle of Supplication. As of now, bottle has aged ~ten months. Aroma -- scents of inviting sour berries and wine barrels emanating from glass. Tough to pinpoint the cherries from the aromatic qualities; however, fruit esters are evident from aroma. Appearance -- opaque, almost translucent, light brown hue. Little if any sediment in bottom of Teku. Taste -- phenomenally balanced brew: the lacto and pedio coalesce marvelously w/ the pinot barrels. This brew has a dreamlike sour cherry tartness w/ crisp pinot barrel on the after-tone that leaves your mouth puckering and salivating for another sip. This brew is more sour than sweet, which I appreciate. The cherries in this batch are not as distinct or sweet as the Montmorency cherries--patented by New Glarus Brewing--but, still blend and taste brilliant, nonetheless. Fruit esters and brettanomyces masquerade ABV exceptionally well. Palate -- exploring all avenues of your palate, this sweet, sour, and crisp sour leaves your palate as satisfied as ever. I have been aging this for ten months now. Supplication is a vinous sour that matures exceptionally well over time. Although delicious fresh, the sourness improves and may intensify over time w/o compromising the integrity of the beer. When I get a fresh batch, I’ll reconfirm the aforementioned statement. I I am completely transfixed by the pure craftsmanship involved in the brewing of this batch.
