Mep3222 (1351) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2016 Fantastic aroma of oaky dark fruit and lactic sour. So complex. Fig, raisin, oak, almost a mild Woody cherry. Taste is lactic sour, maybe 5 or 6 of 10, very balanced and not overly sour for cascade beers. Dark, and almost a dry finish. Woody dark fruit flavors give enough balance to the sour. Flavors of fig, raisin, oak and slight sweet with some vanilla bourbon, the bourbon Woody flavors are so balanced and not boozy at all. A slight tannic Woody finish. That is the only slight negative to this beer, it is almost like it aged a bit too long and got too woody? But that is a slight negative ( having this again and do not feel it is too Woody, so I would remove that as a slight negative and am bumping from4.7 to 4.8. It is so complex and just great) . It is so complex and a great sour. Really good. Read on the bottle after the fact that it is aged on Bing cherries. The cherry flavors I get from it tasted like they were all from the wood. Sugars all fermented away and really intermingled with the oak. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour at BCS. Thanks to BCS staff for sharing! Clearish blood copper with almost no head. Big funky nose with lots of oak, cherry, hay and barnyard notes. Active carbonation and fruit-forward on the palate with big fruit notes that come out as it warms. Very aggressive tartness, but not quite sour as the oak really mellows out the tartness. Some light oaky vanilla notes as it warms as well. Finish is tart and dry with cherry and almond. Awesome!

_angst_ (4654) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2015
Bottle shared at RBScSG in Gothenburg. Pours ugly murky yellowish dark brown with a small creamy beige head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sour and malty with dark bread, sourdough crackers, lemon juice, hay, moist soil, vanilla, moist wood, charries, balsamic vinegar and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, sour, malty and fruity. mouthfeel is round, tart, tiny dry, throat burning acetic and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and sour with dark bread, sourdough crackers, caramel, lemon juice, cherries, raspberries, dark grapes, hay, moist soil, moist wood, balsamic vinegar, barnyard and lemon zest. Too acetic and very hard to drink...

2014 Project. 750 bottle. Mucky brown with lite lacing. Funky fruity tobacco nose with mellow sour cherries. Starts out tart, but not strong, more sour cherries with vinous and wood character. Soft sourness in the finish. Bourbon and alcohol seem to be absent.

Taster at the brewery. Mahogany/brown with a light tan head and thin lace. Aromas of bourbon, dark fruit, oak, alcohol and tobacco. Sour taste dominates, featuring dark fruit, oak, bourbon. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and warming alcohol in the finish. Bit too boozy.
