Bottle shared by Dan. Nose is leathery and dried fruit. Murky reddish brown pour. Light oil slick on top. Taste is a grape skin astringent puckering. Kind of oxidized. A tad bit of chest burn. Pretty good.

Bottle poured into a snifter -- That’s really good. Wine barrels really come through. Tart and dark and mysterious and awesome.

2015 variety. Murky, muddy dark brown. Nose of acidity lemon, toasted malt, some dark fruit, mild red wine and oak. Flavor is mildly sour lactic lemon with toasted malt, raspberry, tart red wine and mild oak. Lingering lemon sour. Remember liking the anniversary brew better, but that was awhile back.

Bottle: pours cloudy reddish-brown with a quickly disappearing head, lots of fizzy little bubbles, aroma reminds me of Rodenbach Grand Cru, very tart, some cherries, very dry finish with a fairly thin body. Very good!

2015. Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy nut brown color with a light tan head. Aroma is mild, tart, darker malts, touch of vinegar. Flavor packs a nice sour to it, with a good dark malts backbone. Lingering sour into the finish. Not bad.

Many thanks to Rian for sharing! Round smokey malty nose. Smooth-fresh. The smokeyness and the sourness don’t fit well. Sad because the combination is odd and doesn’t fit well. The aftertaste is sour-smokey, not round, not too complex. Strange idea...

Thanks Jason! Pours a hazy brown orange with a light tan head. The smell is wood, roasted dark malt, dark fruit. The taste is add out smells with sourness popping through ending dry. Light plus with average carbonation.
