I have to thank Strykzone for this one. Another great beer from Dave. AS a sour beer fan this is right in my wheelhouse with just a perfect amount of wine barrel sourness. From the 500 mil bottle this poured a dark reddish brown with a beige head. Nose of sour fruit Medium plus body. Lively mouth feel. The favor is very rich and the sour fruit is just perfect. Some vanilla appears in the finish. I liked this one a lot. with red. Plenty of fruit in this beer with yeast and nice caramel sweetness. Some nuts and some vanilla. Quite nice.

on tap at braukunst munchen 2014. a bit of an oddity - reddish brown with a slender head; aroma of toffee and stonefruit; hints of vanilla and caramelised banana flavours, apparently from the weizen yeast; a fair bit of alcohol showing but in a warming way

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is fairly fruity with some light oak and grape notes coming through. The flavor is similar. I get some nutmeg and light cinnamon notes as well as some grape and brown sugar. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I dont know what to say here. Beer is probably good in its class because UC is good at what they do. Maybe i just dont like this type of beer.
