COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An ever-changing small batch blend that uses a farmhouse brown ale base with any number of herbs or spices carefully chosen by our brewers to make a wine-like and complex beer unlike any other. It’s barrel-aged for roughly one year and every vintage is different. Cellar for two to four years, depending on vintage.

Pours hazy dark ruddy amber with a transient beige head. Aroma is roasted brown sugar. Med body. Flavor is sour brown sugar. Bizarre concept! Lots of fruit and finishes hotly spicy and slightly oaky. Excellent ale.

thirdeye11 (5634) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2013
(750ml bottle thanks to Mora2000) cloudy rich caramel, soapy lasting film of coasting bubbles. Nose is tart and funky, bit of cherry, chewable vitamins, complex, tart stone fruit. Taste of tart cherry, light brett, complex stone fruit like peaches and apricots. Linger is funky, brett, dry, tart. Complex and awesome.

Gription79 (2311) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Poured from a 750ml bottle. A soft acidity with a light malty sweetness. The spices are very well balanced. Very nice beer.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle, shared by jack (thanks bro!). Batch 3, I think. Pours a cloudy mohagany with a medium sized off white head. Flavor is spicey and funky. Really interesting funky brown-nutty, funk, lots of barrel. Delish.

boFNjackson (4176) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Tap @ Upright’s Tasting Room... Poured hazy, deep reddish-amber. Nice lactic acidity with some candied sweetness, light spice, and some oak, botanicals, and wine-like earthy yeastiness. Dark plum-like fruits, syrupy dark sugar quality too. Even a little bit of heat. Sour and tart especially towards the finish.

Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael. The beer is dark orange with a quarter inch of off white head. The aroma is inviting, with scents of citrus fruit, spice, white wine, grapes. Nice flavor, with prominent grape and tannic characters. White grape juice with a touch of wild yeast. Light bodied, but not thin. Nice feel. Overall, very enjoyable.

ericdevin (901) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 23, 2013
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.

marcus (6781) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours murky brown with a fast disappearing beige head and a sour spicy aroma. There is a sour fruit flavor with some brown sugar and coriander and a bit of pepper. A very unique brew that is interesting to drink.

Bottlle from a trade with 5000. Pours clear copper color with off white head. Aromas of sour cherries, oak, whisky and grapes. Flavors of tart cherries, peppers, whisky, oak, vanilla, and oranges. Medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Andre.
