Growler thanks to Russell. Pours a cloudy amber with small frothy white head. The aroma is strong oak, yeast, lacto, wood. Thin mouthfeel with nice oak, cherry skin, and light dry finish. Good.

Bottle generously shared at Sante Adairius by some guy I don’t even know. Thanks! Brown pour, tan head. Aromas of wheat bread, oak, and malt vinegar. The flavor isn’t blatantly acetic, but there is a little bit. The acidity overall is subdued, allowing for lots of other notes to come through, specifically bread, berry, prune and oak. Not bad.

Travlr (20866) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle generously muled by Savannah, paired with chocolate cake made with red chili peppers from New Mexico. Hazy deep amber color, small light tan head. Aroma of dark plums, dates, sourdough brown bread. Taste is peppery, slightly dusty, dark fruit with steady tartness throughout.

FlacoAlto (4133) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2013
A vigorous pour into my New Belgium globe glass produces a one finger thick, tan colored head. The beer is a dark brown color that shows a red tinged, brown / amber hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells tart, perhaps a touch spicy, it has an earthy toasted woody note to it, an up-front berry like fruitiness, and a finish that has a toasted, whole grain malt / grain character to it. As the beer warms just a bit the brown malt notes and the toasted, woody oak character starts to come out a bit more. Nutty, toasted / roasted malt notes start to come out as it warms up even a touch more.

The beer is fairly light bodied and has a nice tartness to it up front. The finish is dry, with a woody astringency and flavor, as well as a bit of oak spice character. Underneath the oak there is a touch of toasted grain character that has a touch of roast character to it. The acidity here has a spiciness that suggests at some acetic acid, though it is kept at a manageable level, and even accentuates a cherry and perhaps strawberry like fruitiness here. This really is quite light bodied, almost seems a bit too thin, though it is somewhat refreshing.

Not bad, but could use more complexity; either more funk and acidity would be welcome, or a richer malt complexity to balance the simple acidity that is here would be quite nice. The aroma strikes a nice balance and complexity between the tart, oak and malt notes, but the flavor just doesn’t quite live up to that promise.
