3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
16.9 oz bottle. Clear peachy pink with white froth. Nose is chardonnay, sour plum and oak. Oily medium body with a dull sparkle, peppery bite and bracing tartness. Taste is green plums, plum skins, meadow botanicals, wine and slight funk. Lovely hints of sweet fruit. Evocative of nature like a good gueuze.

Bottle @ La Palma Sour Fest 2015. Sort of a dark orange colored beer with some white foam. There’s a good bit of fruity, tangy, vinous aroma to this. A touch of grape skin, some plum, and even a bit of cherry. Subtle yeast, perhaps oak, and some citrus zest. Nice sourness to the taste. Pretty dry finish, too. Nice stuff.

S - Tart, fruity aroma with a little ethanol / nail polish.
T - Taste expresses oak, wet cardboard, some mold, good solid plum but nothing significant.
M - Good mouthfeel from the bottle conditioning.

500 ml traded to me by Reggiedunlop. Thanks Kerry! Darker brown,/ hazy Amber with a very thin lasting head. Aroma shows me mild oak with a surprising amount of juicy plum! Flavor is Very nice, the juicy plum sweetness right upfront. The funkiness is still subtle and mild through the center. The wine barrel is also here with a light red wine character that lingers just slightly.
The mouthfeel has medium carbonation with a medium body. Very mild acidic note that is not distracting at all. Overall I really enjoyed sipping on this. Thanks a lot Kerry and Jean! very finely crafted, happy to have sampled this!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ouverte en catimini pendant la projection de Wild Tales. Un nez d’une exubérance rustique, fruitée et lactique qui laisse croire à un liquide élégant. En bouche c’est finement carbonaté avec un déluge vineux et doucement boisé qui laisse derrière elle un film lactique et de la chair de prune. Cette chair gagne en confiance et se combine aux qualités du vin dans laquelle elle a siégée. Toute une réussite pour ma première rencontre avec Tired Hands.
