4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Full disclosure: I borderline slammed this after my shift was over. Wanted to get home, hadnít seen my family in two days. Anywho. Russet, surprisingly clear pour, small off-white head. Oak, vinous notes on the nose, some tart cherry, leather. Leather fruit strips finish on the taste, Bordeaux wine, whiff of caramel malt. Really, really good.

"This wish list item was as good or better than hoped. Near perfect balance of spice, fruit, and ample funk and tartness. Such a delicious and complex brew...thereís even hints of leather and tobacco. "

2014 bottle. Amber/orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma is acidic and vinous with sweet notes of stone fruit. Flavor is acidic and sour upfront with wonderful complex vinous notes in the finish and just a touch of oak. I donít get any spicy rye notes but as is its a very good sour.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It is very acidic, tart, a lot of fruitiness, it is a complex beer, I tried the 2014 edition. Canít find any hints of Rye, it is spicy but very subtle, and I think it comes more from the yeast. It is a very special sour, next time I will age it more time.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber orange, very small head. Aroma has loads of sour notes, mainly peaches, slight hint of oranges. Extremely tart, loads of laccto, no hint of rye. Fun but a bit unbalanced for the style.

Beer Bloggers Conference - San Diego - Big huge sour beer. Tons of alcohol and sour flavors. Just a big sour cherry blend in my humble opinion.
