4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells of red wine barrels, vinegar and some sweet fruity smells. Taste is very vinous and wine like. A bit peppery. Brilliant. Strength is masked very well. Pucker sour for sure. Reminds me of one of the early erimitas. Maybe 1 or 3??

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Avery. Pours a hazy red maroon with light tan head, decent retention for the style and minimal lacing. Aroma is sour, lactic, fruity, stone fruit. Flavor is moderately tart, lactic, stone fruit, plum, with an oaky, lingering finish. Nice level of tartness, moderately fruity, pretty tasty. Moderate to lively carbonation, medium body, and moderately dry, astringent finish. A moderately tart and oaky sour.
Should possibly have been in the sour red/brown category.

Decent sour. Nice red wine characteristics (presumably from barrels) and oak. Fairly one dimensional though. Moderate sourness. Fred’s Mom is better.

@ Avery Sourfest 2012. Slightly hazy rustic ruby, thin bubbly head. Smells like funky maple and dry oak with this dry, earthy rustic toffee tone. Flavor is neat and complex with a nice strong sour tone that refrains from being puckering. Nice and earthy with some nice rustic sweet tones of toffee and fig, but with the sourness of some citrus and funky sour yeast.
