Bottle. Spicy, herbal nose. Tart lemon and hibiscus. Red-brown color, flat. Very dry flavor, sour, light crisp. Doesn’t really go anywhere.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottles. Thanks to Chris H. Cinnamon, sour fruit, some earthiness and funk in the nose. Dark copper color. Big sour fruits hit hard and fast... and then dissipate quickly. Some cactus and pepper. Thin and acidic. Okay. Starts out fine, but doesn’t go much beyond the initial flavors.

Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a cloudy amber with no head. The aroma is strong funk, oak, and fruit. Thin mouthfeel with strong ginger, funk, and very sour. Odd

Bottle @ AirBNB Palace. Amazing. Light carbonation to the amber pour. Short lived off-white head. Aroma of acid, lemon cleaner, cedar, and fennel. Sage, chestnuts, vegetables, and some vinegar. Not a very good flavor, either. Cedar, sage, fennel, and vegetables. Acetic sourness, some chesnuts, and sour grapes.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
@ Falling Rock during GABF. Hazy dark gold, no head. Funky sour aroma with a musty basement acidity and woody astringency. Flavor is better, with smooth carbonation and full tart body. Flavors of sour barrel overripe pears and peach, with a musty acidity and metallic tones. Not awful, but not great.
