3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle with thanks to dbuckingham! Pours clear hazel ruby with a small beige head and some lacing. Aroma is caramel, yam, spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), brown sugar. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, no real bitterness, little acid. Medium body, low carbonation. A bit hot. Just not my thing, but definitely an improvement over the regular (either due to Brett or age, not sure.). I will say that neither I nor my drinking buddy got much Brett influence from the bottle. Maybe it died off a couple years ago.

Bottle at the taproom. Slightly hazy, amber in color, more or less headless. Mostly sweetish on the nose, some alcohol and maple syrup. Lightly spiced too. Warming on the palate, full bodied and flat. Lasting flavor with maple syrup, caramel and a touch of spices and tropical fruits. A bit boring this one. 130811

A good sour, a little bit of a breath of fresh air in the world of hops. For anybody that is a little over the hop craze, you should look at this beer.

Side by side with bourbon barreled version. Thinner than bourbon but a touch yammy for me.
