3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is intriguing with a moderate acidity, some caramel and toffee. Medium light floral notes with lots of dark fruit notes of cherry, plum and berry. Light oak and vanilla character. Some alcohol notes. Pours dark brown but not quite black with a small,moderately thick, tan head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges. Light lacing and medium sized legs. Flavor has some moderate acidity with a lot of berry, cherry and cassis notes with light plum and raisin. Medium toffee notes with light caramel and chocolate notes. Light oak notes and faint vanilla. Some alcohol spice along with a bit of nuttiness. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and moderate alcohol warmth. Overall an alright sour and it doesn?t taste like an unintentionally infected sour beer. Its also not my favorite though with the alcohol higher than I prefer. Similar to a high abv oud bruin. A slightly off character.

Bottle from the reserve society. Awesome!! Another infected, red wine mess of a brew. Nasty red wine vinegar and moldy oak.
Infected sourness is so intense I needed to scrap my tongue and brush my teeth afterwords. I really hope they square away all the problems with infected beer. It has been out of control this year.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
RS beer. Dark brown, slightly murky. Smells like an infected scotch ale. Taste is awful. so acidic, malty, vinegar heavy, touch of cherry pie and lactic acid. really putrid and a total drain pour.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Just not my thing. Looks nice enough. But that’s about as far as the charm goes. Sour prunes, caramel, booze, barrel, toffee, vinegar, nail polish remover... Flavors are muddled, the whole thing lacks focus for me. I don’t generally love beers this big, so perhaps I’m the wrong guy to judge. But there’s no way two of us are getting through this 750.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A- pours a dark mahogany brown with a finger of beige head and some minimal lacing. S- acetone and nail polish remover is strong with vinegar, latex, lemon zest, sour oak, dandelions, grass and light smoke. M- light to medium oily body with a medium acetic palate.b T- cheese and sour funk, sour cream oak, honey, brown sugar and vinegar are all forward. Mid palate is all floral and bandaid. Like one big plastic bouquet. Ending is lemon, jasmine, herbal spices and bitter grasses. A nice twist on the wee heavy.
