Murky reddish copper, no head. Nice complex sour aroma of whiskey, dark fruits, toffee, slight acidity and slight sourness. Flavor is the same in every good way. Boozy woody dark fruity malts, toffee, some whiskey tones, raisins and cherries, slight sour acidity, with a boozy sweet finish. Basically tasted like the beer form of a whisky sour with some fruity esters from the Reverend base.

arminjewell (9488) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark almost purple looking pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of lots of grapes, dark fruits and berries, slight hint of weird vanilla with some funky notes, as some odd oak and vanilla come through as well. Taste was even more all over the place, weird grape and berry notes went into a weird oaky vanilla, from the bourbon I assume, hint of dark fruit and a slight funkiness, some vinous notes as well. Interesting idea, but not well executed.

On draft at Avery during a BA release. Red wine and wood nose. Nice brownish-toned magenta with minor lacing. Palate is rounded out by the Salvation influence which also adds nice clean citrus to the finish. Peach and apricot from the Salvation is not really noticeable-this is a Recolte-influenced wild ale first with nice acid, wine barrel, and tame brett, with Salvation just providing a fuller palate and toning down the sour edges. Fun and highly drinkable.

On tap at Avery poured a hazy reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of toffee, dark fruit, light carmel, light grape and light barnyard funk. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry lightly tart finish. Flavors of toffee, carmel, tobacco, light grape and light barnyard funk with a crisp dry lightly tart lingering tobacco finish.

On tap at Avery. Pours with a hazed amber-bronze hued body with a off-white head. Aromas are fruity, estery, grapes, light bourbon and some vinous notes. Flavors are sweet, jammy, juicy, vinous, lightly peppery oak, deep malt character. Light bubbles, well hidden alcohol. Quite tasty.

That1Guy (2223) - Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2011
A combination sour, bourbon, wine, something? Something else. One of the most original machinations of beer I have ever tasted. Pours deep hazy red with a nice head. Should be muddy considering the flavor bill, but every flavor is distinct and excellent. No idea how that works, but Im okay with that. A fuckin flavor kick in the teeth, throat, groin, and brain because it doesnt make sense.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Draft @ taproom. Garnet and hazy. Smells like wine yeast and homebrewed wine that is still green. Decent carbonation level. A bit too hot for its own good. Is very sweet like it hasnt even all fermented yet. But then also has grain alcohol character too. Stronger than it is flavorful. Is quite plonky overall.
