3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a stem glass. Cloudy rust brown. Nose has notes of wood with hints of lambic sourness. There is brown sugar as well. Flavour is sweet up front with notes of cedar and oak. Then the sour spikes. Long finish with sour predominating but lingering sweetness in the background. What an interesting creation from Three Floyds. It is perhaps a bit eccentric for some tastes but I loved it.

Poured an orangish amber color from the bottle with aromas of offensive skunkiness, oak, light malt, and some rotting bananas. Flavors matched the aromas, drain pour, not good.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle from the brewery, served in a branded stem glass. Pours hazy orange-caramel with a moderate tan head that mostly remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has huge notes of sour fruit, green apple, oak and funk. The flavour is moderately sweet throughout with big oak, caramel malts and a hint of sour fruit. The finish is long and oaky, with caramelly malts. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a nice oak barrel-aged Belgian style ale. The nose starts out sour and funky, but it mellows out as it develops on the palate. Overall, a very nice ale. 2014-01-31

Strong yeast esters and phenols. Very very fruity. Deep red color. Minimal head. Strong phenolic taste full of phenols and a weird tartness. Some white woody tannins leave a drying finish. Hmmm. Interesting.
