I have found a new love for sour beer and beers like this are why. Sour,sour and more sour. I think the red wine barrel aging is why you get the oak and fruit flavors. Over all just great beer.

Bottle. Dark amber body with medium, quickly evading, head. Aroma has tartness character, light woody notes. Taste has acidic sourness, long bitter background, light malty support. Body is full, medium carbonation. Not bad, but not as good as I’ve expected for the fame.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle from Mother Kelly’s in London. It pours a deep dark ruby color with purple edges and the tiniest off-white head. The little foam dissipates immediately. Aroma is intensely sour and vinegarish with notes of wiod, basement, cherries and more wild berries. Taste is acidic with some sweeter fruit notes. More flavours of sour cherries, wild berries, wood and dusty basement. Some funk and lemon zest. Body is medium with lively carbonation. Overall, very good brew and quite a proper example of the style.
