4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A lot of different smells... Oaky. Some red wine. Raspberry. Musty Barrely smell,. A little strawberry.
Appearance is reddish brown hazy. Head retention is nice.
Taste is very complex. Oaky finish. Sour. Raspberry. Strawberry. A little light almost on the taste. A hint of malt on the finish as well. I dunno. I’m having a little love hate thing. It’s good in its own right...... A subtle fruitiness but the oakiness dominates.... But maybe that makes the fruitiness more appreciable. Some plum maybe.
Palate is very sour. Great flavor development. Smooth.
A really interesting beer. Excited to see a sour come from a small new brewery (and more excited to be a part of something after moving to South Carolina after living in Grand Rapids with founders..) lots of great flavors. Good for a special occasion. Check it out if you can grab a bottle.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Manny G. Pours lightly hazy amber with a creamy, mellow tan head. The nose holds moderate wet wood, old dried berries, earth and leather. Light sweet flavor with some assertive acidity, tart old berries, more well-worn leather. Light to medium bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with good sour, leathery fruits, berried. Good stuff.
