2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 ml bottle, bottle 1/13 1337, barrel TBB 1-6. Pours dark amber brown with a very thin fizzy head that quickly almost completely disappears, other than a little constant bubbling from the bottom of the glass.
The aroma is some sweet caramel, tart acidic fruit and funk with a little butyric acid.
The flavor is sweet sugary malts with tart sour fruit and a little funk. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with very low carbonation.
Overall, great name but a not so great sour.

Bottle at Dadsgiving! Pours a lightly hazed brown with a thin white head. Soft sweet toffee and a bit of sourness. Malty, sweet, nice bright acid comes in with a touch of acetic. Very approachable, tangy. Long lingering acid with more sweet malt.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours deep brown with an off white head. Sweet malts, tart dark fruits, pervasive spices, and an odd funky finish. Not bad, but not really something I’d enjoy more than a sample of.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At GABF. Deep amber color. Aroma is spicy and sour. This leads into an interesting flavor both tart and fruity but spicy and dry. Finish is also tart with residual sweetness. Different for sure.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at GABF. Another intresting one and mix of ingredients here. Smells of funk, roast, citrus, earth. Flavors are the same with a crisp finish and some earthiness. Strangish, but damn good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mustard adds a super interesting curve ball here. Honey brins mustard seed down to a tolerable level for beer. Some bretta, sour raisin and plum aromas. Finishes a little sour with a kind of mouth-puckering dryness from mustard. Bottle thanks to Sammy.
