3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a murky brown with almost no head. Not too much notes on this one but it wasn’t too tasty and a bit awkard. Sour-ish/sweet, like a caramel apple maybe. Some spices that try to save the day but don’t do much to make it more appealing.

Bottle from Market of Choice, Eugene. Pours a medium-dark reddish brown, lots of off-white head. Aroma vinous and vinegary, lots of tartness. Maybe some stone fruit notes, too. Strawberry? Fresh apricots? Smells tasty. Body lively, finish sharp, tart, and then with a bright sweetness before fading back to a lingering if slight bitterness, woody notes. Holy hell, amazing. Will have to get another one to age; not sure what the vintage is of this bottle.

Bottle. Cheers to Bruce. The pour’s deep red with a small head. The nose is spiced red fruits. Strawberry and blackberry preserve. Farmhouse yeast, a bit of fun. The taste is somewhat acetic. Berry punch, some lemon peel. Some rusty penny, a bit of mineral. Medium body, smooth. Overall, quite tasty indeed.

Bottle thanks to Bruce, consumed at his shack. It pours hazy mahogany brown with a medium beige head. The nose is light sulphur, wood, sour green apple, vanilla, earth and toasted coconut. The taste is wood, earth, pleasant tartness, spice, dark fruit, tart berry, vinous and light acidity with a dry finish. Initially tart then smooths out. Medium body and fine carbonation. Rather tasty and brilliantly balanced.
