Thanks for the split HisBoyElroy. Very nice smell. But everything else was a different story. Not much to it and kind of plain.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Pours a tawny reddish brown color with a thin light tan head that falls quickly to a ring leaving thick lacing. Aromas of caramel, tart cherry, oak, and brett. Taste is tart but includes some musty notes, fruity apple and pear, clove, slight bit of banana and finishes slightly bitter and quite drying. With the drying finish comes some of the oak and woodsy characteristics in the taste. Medium, sticky body, with high carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy red-brown body, thin cream head. Woody, tannic, red wine nose, tart and almost lactic and Rodenbachesque. Vinous, tart, and sweet body with lots of grape skin, berries, and wood.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ruby red to brown, creamy tan head. Beautiful aroma. Malty, bright fruit, lightly woody, smells as if it will be a really good sour beer. The palate/flavor is a bit disappointing, as the sour flavor is much less prevalent, although still there. Long finish on this one. Overall, definitely a good beer, just a bit less sour and complex than you’d expect from the nose.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma I amazing and smells like it would be a pretty sour beer. I was kind of disappointed with the taste. Starts like a mild sour, but it finishes kind of like an ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Pours deeper red/burgundy with a bubbly ring of lace. Super vinegary and vinus. Tart cherry and some funk to the nose. Really easy drinking and packed with cherry, strawberry, and some raspberry. Veto approachable and easy to drink. Nice

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent copper brown colored body and a poor lacing. . The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of red currant jelly Irish red malt and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours reddish brown worth little of white head. Vinegar aroma with some Belgian grainy funk. Earthy dry Belgian malts dominate with a light acidic sour. Somewhat strange and safe for a sour, not too dynamic but not outright bad, just not quite there.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma of funk, solvent, vanilla and oak. Taste is acetone, vanilla, oak, tart cherries and funk. If I can get past the acetone, it's not a bad beer, just wish that wasn't present and it would be solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep ruddy red with a huge head. Pleasant sour mash and berry nose. Tart crisp attack. Raspberry, citrus. Smooth finish. Very good but different beer.
