From notes. Enjoyed at Corbets house during a tasting on October 24. 375 mL bottle, 2013 vintage. The pour is a dark brown, unlike most traditional sours, with a thin khaki ring of head that thins out in a hurry. The aroma is full of a lighter fruit, roasted malts, a hint of charred oak, a funkiness, and a light black or raspberry on the back end. Its light on the fruit, but decent. The flavor is a little more balanced, but there is a little more alcohol present. The fruits are light and crisp, and the barrel really moves in and takes over. The mouth feel is a little thin and light, but carries an immense carbonation and a lingeringly smooth, yet quite hot, alcoholic berry finish. This is interesting. Its not as tart as I was expecting.

375ml bottle thanks to adnielsen! Pours dark black brown with about a finger of fizzy offwhite head. Nose is tart crisp dark berrys, wood, funk, some roasty cocoa, grape, fruit, subtle whiskey. Taste is sweet, los of tart mixed grape and dark berries, strawberry, soil, wet wood, spice. Finish is sweet funky grape, ashy chocolate, woodshop, funk, earthy dark fruit and hints of whiskey spice. A lot going on and it pulls it off. Fun beer.

Bottle to glass. Pours a deep reddish brown color with a light brown head. Aroma is tart, Flanders character, slight smoke, whisky notes. Flavor has a big oily sour that finishes with a strong whisky character. Very unique beer. Delicious.

Bottle. Dark brown color, brown head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of vanilla, figs, brown sourdough bread, raisins. Taste has burnt caramel, vanilla, softly sour dark fruit. Very tasty, I like it better than the base beer.

Brown pour. Nose us tart cherries, some citrus, funk, spicy whiskey barrels. Taste is tart and bitter fruits. A bit too bitter. Has a lot going on but the bitter pulpiness to the finish isnt my style.
