brokensail (16678) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 8, 2016
On tap @ Aptos St. BBQ. Amber pour with an off-white head. Strong blackberry, raspberry, and fruit leather character to the nose. Sort of a dusty and funky, library book thing going on. Fair amount of red wine and balsamic vinegar notes. Somewhat light on the sweetness, but there is a lot of berry fruity qualities that I liked. Maybe a touch of booze as it warms. This is pretty nice.

phaleslu (10750) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2016
Draft at Aptos St. BBQ. Pours a cloudy dark amber color with a small beige head that settles into a ring and leaves some spots of lace in the glass. Notes of tart cherries, plums, red wine, balsamic vinegar, vanilla, oak, and blueberry pie. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, sour mouthfeel. Good Flanders-style sour.
