3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a rather familiar hazy dark amber color with a small khaki head.
S: Somewhat acetic with a big time berry and fruit aroma. The blackberries really stand out, but there is a nice cherry undertone to it as well. A mild malt character that makes the beer sort of reminiscent of an Oud Bruin.
T: A nice hit of blackberry and cherry up front, as well as some other dark fruits. Mildly acetic, but overall nicely tart. Plenty of oak and perhaps even some red wine flavor.
M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation, though maybe it could have used a bit more.
O: A nice beer. Not amazing, but another example of the Bruery sours getting better.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Murky caramel-colored ale with a small, fluffy, off-white head. Good retention. The nose offers nutty caramel, modest lemony acidity and woody spiciness. Full-bodied and creamy with airy carbonation. The flavor is a welcomed blast of caramel and acidity with cherry fruitiness. Finishes tart with mellow, yeasty bitterness. Kudos to wavers1 for floating this awesome beer my way!
