3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle. This lived up to its name, as the beer tried to escape after I opened it. The aroma picked up dusty cellar, sour cherries, and leather topped by light pie spices, more cherry, and assertive floral notes.. very interesting. The flavor found tart cherries and oak barrel on the tip of the tongue, with strong, slightly boozy vinous notes following.. cherry zest and red wine barrel laced throughout.. more tart than sour on the finish, and very dry. Medium-bodied with more filling carbonation than expected.. very tart and very dry overall.. good stuff.

Cloudy brown with a thick, persistent foam. Aroma of brown sugars, light fruit, wood, and a touch of vanilla. Tart dark cherry blows up the taste buds and fades into smooth dark fruits. Love that this beer is not too sweet. Finish is flavorful and balanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Muddy, dense, & slightly red-tinted copper, brown-ish body with a beige head that fizzles out to a small collar instantly. Aroma of mild tart, acidic cherry skins, berries, lemon flesh, lactic acid, mild yogurt, vinous oak, & a hint of booziness that shines through. Smells tart as hell. Tastes tart as hell. Acetic sourness, mild vinegar, lemon, lactic acid, cherry skin, vinous grapes, faint raspberry seediness. Sharp oak & dry, acidic finish with a mild acetic burn going down. A very nice sour for sourheads.

This poured an orange color with a white head. Aroma was of dark fruit skins and vinegar. Flavor was similar, teeth ripping ascetic acid, vinegar and fruit. Meh.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Le côté vineux est en symbiose avec l’armada de fruits juteux. Un brett bien gras et sauvage fait le lien vers le bois et l’acidité est dosé avec flair. Buvabilité confiturée.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2015 2013 Vintage
Tasted on 9/27/14 from a capped 750mL bottle, huge thanks to Churnt-up for sharing. Pours hazy burnt orange with a thin tan head that leaves a thin color of lace. The nose is a bit of dark caramel malt with a ton of blackberry and cherry, plenty of coconut and vanilla oak influence. The flavor is the lightly sweet malt and tons of oak influence, very sour funk, and fresh, natural blackberry and cherry. The body is medium and tannic with just above average carbonation and a long funky sour, and very fruity finish.

Poured an amber color with aromas of tart cherries, light vinegar, a touch of stinky foot, and some light fruit. Flavors matched the aromas, less the feet notes. Decent cherries come through, solid overall.

A big want that I’m glad the Bruery made. Bottle thanks to Chris!
A: Cloudy, murky brown body. Creme colored head. Decent lacing.
N: Oak, cherry, vinegar, acetone, tobacco, blackberry, cabernet grape, lemon, and what I swear is cocoa.
T: Intensely sour. Maybe a hint of sweetness, but that’s a big maybe.
M: Moderate carb. Medium body; touch of oiliness.
O: Seems like Oude Tart with a hint of blackberry juice. It just doesn’t blow my mind, and I’d much rather have BW XII.
