750ml. Thanks again to Chris for sharing. Rich brown, red-tinged stringy gray head. Red malty, sour-tart, clean tart juice. Malty cranberry. Sparkling. Pretty tasty but a bit confusing.

2013 bottle, thanks to Reynolds314. Ruddy orange brown pour. Dusty; tart; some oxidation; light caramel. Surprisingly (or maybe not so surprisingly? Expectations are odd like that) tart and tannic through the finish. Suggests to me that there was once more sweetness to this, but time has dried it out (or maybe that’s bullshit -- who am I to say what time has done to a beer I’ve never had except for this one bottle generously traded to me). Medium- body, slick texture.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Waxed bottle poured. Huge thanks to Chris for sharing this gem of a style I know little about. Next thing I know I am enjoying the highest rated beer in the style. Reddish orange pour with a patchy head. Sour fruit aroma. Flavor is sour orange and cranberry juice, lingering berry. How this isn’t a sour, and a bier de garde, is beyond my knowledge, but the beer is fantastic. Sourness rating 7/10. Most excellent.

Flavor: Moderately tart cherry, light vinegar, yeast and mineral to start. Then roasted grain and a hint of nuttiness in the middle and then light bitter lemon pith.
Comment: Well balanced, understated and well-made.
