3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at my birthday drinks. It pours murky deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is malt vinegar, date, prune, lemon, oak, vanilla and toasted coconut. The taste is tangy fruit...cherry, date, raisin, grape, earth, moderate acidity, some alcohol, wood, balsamic vinegar and lemonade with a dry, tangy finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Definitely smells like a Bruery sour for sure! Rather tasty stuff.

Bottle. Cheers to Paulo (I think) for supplying this. Deep red pour with a tiny off-white head. The nose is somewhat harsh. Musty red grape skin, mild balsamic vinegar. Sweet ribbon candy. A bit rough n’ ready. The taste is delicate orchard fruit. Apricots. Acetic funk. Grape skin. A touch of rough acid. Soft carbonation, light body considering the ABV. Overall, fairly solid.
