4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ The Commons... Poured murky, gray-ish pink with a thin, bubbly head. Nose had nice fruit with brett funk. Nice tasting fruit here. Crisp, refreshing, fruit juice sweetness with added brett to dry it out and a funky depth. I wouldn’t say this was too sour or anything. Was more on the barnyard side with a good plum/dark fruit character.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Hop and Vine in Portland, OR. Pours a cloudy pinkish tinted orange body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has a good amount of funky Brett and somewhat sweet and tart plums. Light vinous fruit notes with hints of wood and cherry. Flavor is solid. Somewhat sweet and tart plums with a smooth cherry essence, some light wood notes, a nice Brett funk, and a few vinous fruit hints. Finishes dry, funky, woody, and balanced with a nice mix of sweet and sour plums. Lengthy aftertaste following a light body and a somewhat lively, light carbonation. Overall, a really tasty beer. Funky, woody, and fruity with a dry, pleasant finish. Good one.

On tap at Bailey’s Taproom, pours a cloudy darker orange with a large foamy white head. Aroma of sour plums, brett and pinot noir barrels. Flavour of red wine barrels, complex sour plums and some brett. Very complex making great use of the pinot noir barrels. Great stuff.

Not bad, mellow and drinkable. I was expecting a little more plum taste. It's a decent farmhouse but fairly middle of the pack. I've had way better.
