Thanks to Blazer. I think this is the beer we had, but at this point I don’t think it matters. Another White Birch beer, another disgusting mess. Haven’t had a good one yet. This one tasted like I wiped my ass with cardboard and ate it like it was a Twinkie. These guys should win an award for the most obscene off-flavors in their beers. It is uncanny how they can get so much complexity out of their off-flavors.

Rcvd in trade. Pours like motor oil (look and sound = "glub, glub glub") no head no matter how fast or slow I pour with a dark black colored body and no lacing whatsoever. The smell has the sour up front first and then light roasty chocolate enters in with some oak and tart cherry. The taste is sour roasted oaky cherry chocolate all combined and coming through powerfully. There is a roasty sticky tart cherry aftertaste and a super dry roasty and somewhat tart cherry with a touch of vanilla finish. On the palate, it sits about a medium on the body, not really sessionable but not really a sipper. Carbonation is pretty smooth. Overall, this is an American Wild Ale that is barrel aged that is somewhat decent to me. I could do this one again.

2010 rating - thanks jdiddy. Pours super dark brown with red highlight. Small light brown head. Smell is dark malt, slightly sour fruit...a lot going on. Taste is slightly sour, dark fruit followed by tangy sour fruit...grapefruit. Mild carbonation with light body. It’s just OK.

750ml bottle shared by jsprime. black, tan head. odd dusty funky nose with roasted malt. flavour is like an infected stout. sour funk clashes with to much bitterness and acrid roasted malt. didnt like this, but i could finish my sample so its not the worst White Birch ive had.

Smells like a barrel aged stout. Tastes overly sour, not much else, really poorly balanced and just plain bad.

(750ml bottle) Pours a black body with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, wood, chocolate, dark fruit, leather, and mustiness. Flavor of roasted malt, brett, fruit, oxidation, earth, vinous, medicinal, oak, and some chocolate.

brokensail (11601) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Pours a murky amber color with an off-white head. Nose is just awful. Super metallic, smells like pennies. A light balsamic note, leather, maybe some wood, and salt. The flavor is watery, but still manages to pack a decent punch of off-flavors. Pennies, vinegar, dirt, cardboard, and salt. Why?

75 cL bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity and dark malty. Smooth malty and dense fruity. Crisp and almost wineous. Lingering fruity and mild tart.
