Same table as the others and this was the bomb. Tasty brew liked the mild sour funkiness.

Bottle poured into glass. Good bit of sour funk in this one. Nice balance between the fruit characteristics and the tartness. Easily drinkable and the ABV is masked extremely well. Very good sour!

illidurit (2458) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle shared at Woodshop 7. Pours dark orange. Boring boozy aroma. Flavor is better, with tangerines and oranges, salty alcohol, light fusel, acetic and leathery.

Aroma of oaked chardonnay, maple, and funk. Pours deep orange slight fizzy head. Taste is sweet like a sweet white wine, nice funky yeast, and great biscuit bourbon notes. Fantastic.

tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle, copper pour, small white head. Little retention/lace. Aroma of dark fruit, cherry, lemon, acetic acid, funk, light barrel. Taste is tart, lactic, cherry, lemon, acetic, vinegar. Palate is soft, slick, tart finish.

LtDan (1808) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Appearance: Pours a murky mahogany with a micro film.

Aroma: Tart plum skin, bourbon, some coriander and or some savory spice.

Taste: Tart red fruit, mellowed bourbon, red wine vinegar. Modest tannins, lingering tartness.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, puckering with soft carbonation.

Overall: I enjoyed this immensely. The closest thing I could compare this beer to would be Upland’s Gilgamesh, but would give this beer the slight edge on favorite. Very tasty and inviting. Sour, but not twist your face off sour. Wish I had one to sit on for a year.
