4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brown pour with a decent white head. Aroma is sour fruit, a bit tropical, tart and acidic. Some slight caramel notes. Flavor is sour fruit, cherries, but not quite. Raspberries, but not quite. I’m guessing that’s the guava playing trick on my palate. Really sublime beer. Nice tart balance with some good fruit character. It’s a winner.

Saturday night bottle share. 750ml bottle courtesy of Toby Berries and barrels. Lots of wooden notes to take the edge off the tartness of his sour. Slick and oily, sweet and tart, which lingers on the palate.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a deep clear reddish color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of tart notes with some light vinous notes and some oak. Taste is a complex mix of guava with some tart and oak notes with some light vinous notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nice level of complexity with some good drinkability with the nice guava presence.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from trade. Pours a murky brown with a scant head. Aromas of oak and some light citrus. Taste is tart and semi dry. Flavors of sour apple, some orange, oak, moss and a slight funk. Perhaps a touch of vinegar. Alcohol is hidden. Tart, lip smacking finish. I want to like this more than I do, but in the end it’s just another mediocre Bruery offering.
