UPDATED: DEC 23, 2010 Drank next to Vagabond. Golden-tan body, lighter than Vag with a thin cream head. More funky than Vag, vinous with oak and lemon, light nut and vinegar. Flavor is more strongly acidic, lemon and brown sugar with more nut and vinegar. The lemon is definitely more pronounced in the flavor, forcing a contrast that does not help the beer. Dryer and slightly thinner than Vagabond, this still has the soft body that partially allows elements to coexist despite the imbalance in the flavor. With decent warmth, there’s a bit a blue cheese here, oddly enough. A bit simple and overly acidic in the flavor, the more sour profile compares poorly to lambics and to the sweeter grape and cherry in Vagabond, particularly given their similarly soft bodies and light malt sweetness.

Drank next to a bunch of raspberry beers. shimmering copper, frothy white head that laces everywhere. Really rich raspberry, seeds and all. Faint Brett that only slightly turns sweet vanilla and fruit into a lactic yogurt. Flavor is a bit metallic, overly sweet and syrupy, short finish, very lightly bitter like VicFranc but not nearly as problematic. Moderate but delicate body, lightly fizzy. Fantatic nose, flavor is off, from green raspberries to a milky oversweetness. Less enjoyable with warmth, shows too much incoherence and some off notes. 957416

Big thanks to Kevin for sharing this one at this installment of our quite frequent tasting. A-pours a hazy caramel color with a tight off white head. S-the oak and vanilla come through right up front. a touch of wild yeast and balsamic, notes of lemon with a touch of cherry. T-slightly tart lemon up front, notes of earthy grain. the oak is strong in the middle, a touch of vanilla. a light balsamic vinegar comes in towards the back fading into a sweet, slightly tart cherry with a good amount of sourness and acidity. M-relatively smooth with a touch of graininess on the palate. good medium to full body with a nice crisp finish and good amount of carbonation. D-this is a very nice sour. a good amount of acidity and tartness to it, with a nice balance of sweetness. the oak aging was done very well and the french oak barrels have a real presence.

(375ml bottle thanks to mar) opaque deep yellow with a ring of bubbles around the edges. Nose of sour raspberries, wet barrel and brown sugar. Taste of fresh raspberry juice, quite tart, lots of barrel. It’s all very well balanced. Nice woody finish with a little salt coming through as well.
