4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very Crisp and delicious. Prominent wine barrel flavor with an acidity reminiscent of red wine that has been left open a little too long. Not as complex a five, which makes it actually fairly refreshing

dark sours can be tricky to nail down, this is an example of how to do it .. . tar and sour tar dominate .. fruit skin, wood, cooked on bbq sauce .. . ample mouth, medium to long grungy finish .. always a treat to have .. . . as a promotion i could compete against some kind of bagging machine. a russian bagging machine.

Tap at el Bait Shop, 2015 version. Deep brown body with a reddish hint at the edges. A thin khaki head. Malty sour cherry nose with some hay. A little funky. Taste is sour but very restrained. Caramel balance with some dry hay in the finish. Just the slightest note of medicinal character. Smooth lightly carbonated body. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. This one was opened at the Beernanza at Gusís house on May 28. This came from a 750 mL bottle. We opened a couple years next to one another, and I just rated the better one, I think it was the 2016. The pour is a dark orange color, which is weird for a dark sour, and itís got a thin gray head that slowly fizzles off, just leaving the liquid there. This one is something else. The aroma is winey, with a little oakiness and some tart funkiness. Itís like this thing is waiting for some fruit to get added and they forgot about it. Itís really messy and not that great. There is a mustiness that I canít quite place either. The flavor is much of the same. Itís like an oaky wine with some tart funk happening in it. I just donít understand the lure. The mustiness is present, and maybe itís just leftover growth from the wine barrel, I donít really know. The mouth feel is decent. There is an oilier body, decently thick with a lighter carbonation and a woody, winey aftertaste. This one is just a mess from the start. Hmm. Not sure how I feel about it yet.

750 ml bottle shared by someone in the group. Pours a dark cola like brown with a small beige head. The aroma has tart dark fruits, cherry, woody notes, dark caramel with some funk. The flavor has thick dark caramel, tart black cherry, wood, other dark fruits and some funk. The finish gets a bit soft which was somewhat disappointing. Still very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap into a snifter showing moderately filtered dark wine red with sparse latte colored foam.
The nose shows a mix of brett funk and a strong red wine profile (think goose berry and boysenberry)
The palate is moderately carbonated and light bodied. Bretty funk for an instant on the attack then afterwards, red wine tannins and dark berry flavors become very quickly apparent. Bitterness on the finish shows the same red wine flavor profile with bright oak also apparent in the background. Lightly tart, the finish also shows a drying tannic edge.
