2009 Project
Tasted in early 2012 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle shared by Curtis. Pours a red wine/tint of amber with an average tan head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is dusty tart and sour red fruit, lemon peel, caramel malt, and a touch of chocolate. The flavor is very tart and lemon sour with red berries, bread malt, some caramel...overall very vinous. The body is medium and tannic with average carbonation and a long sour vinous finish.

Bottle. Pours murky burgundy with minimal beige head. Aroma has pleasant oakiness to it with red wine and sour cherries. Flavor is moderately acetic with some oak and cherry sweetness to complement the vinegar. Port wine and some dryness in the finish. Very nice!

arminjewell (9689) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Pour out of bottle at Avery Sourfest 2012, hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of sour lemon, biscuit and caramel, touch of yeast, spice notes mix into a berry and slightly funky nose towards the end. Taste is fairly restrained but tasty, with some residual caramel sugars, some lactic and slight acetic notes, more funky earth tones come into some berry, cherry and spice notes, finishing fairly dry and pretty sour.

Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Wow - pours red amber thick ith a nice dark sandy red head. The aroma brings soured malt notes, quite nice and tangy with light alcohol cooling notes. The flavor is quite tart and sour but pleasant with notes of the red wine shining through potently and a tangy ending. So good.

onceblind (10096) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2012
@ Avery Sourfest 2012. Opaque reddish brownish, with a small foamy beige head. Fruity sour aroma with some cherry and fig, with some wood and bretty like tone. Flavor is much the same, with a tart fruitiness that’s delightful but a little too dry. Medium sourness that’s delightful with the fruitiness.
