3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle pours a watery, translucent mahogany amber with some clumpy white head. Nose of rhubarb, strawberry, malt, toast, grass. Flavor is very tart, grapefruit pith, rhubarb, vinegar. Acetic finish. Fairly well balanced though.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2013 Pours an opaque black from the bottle with bubbly off-white head that continually effervesces. Aroma of tart sour funkiness that has some great dark fruit esters. Taste follows, super tart but an interesting chocolate and roasted make in the middle. Damn good. Bottle says 7% abv.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown pour, low carbonation. Tart candy aroma, Raspberry vinagerette come through in both taste in aroma. Also taste of Oak, Red wine, very slight roast from the stout comes through in the finish as this warms. I like what the Bruery was going for here but the sour qualities overpowered the stout. Nice thick mouthfeel!

Bottle. Black pour with no head. Sour and fruit like aromas with little to no malt tone. Flavor is light brett, dry tart fruit, and some hints of stout this once was.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a mahogany ruby brown color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose is very vinous with notes of cider vinegar, pinot noir and a roasty chocolate malt backbone. On the palate it follows suit but is slightly disjointed. Nice levels of acidity and not overly acetic... but lacking a overly complex palate... very flemish in its character with a long lingering pucker.

Another gem.... balsamic vinegar wet wood and stale coffee dominate this typically substandard bruery beer.
