Had the 2012 release. Just a very well balanced beer. Great tartness with an excellent grape taste. I am hoping this ages well. The color reminds me of many other sour type beers. Taste sits in the mouth for the right amount of time without leaving any aftertaste. Great beer to try if you can find it.

Labeled Batch No. 4 on the bottle

A: A somewhat dark copper with deep ruby highlights. The persistent, light tan head is made of thin layer of rocky bubble that settle into a thick ring around the edge of the glass.

S: A medium aroma of red currents, tart cherries and sharp tartness. Some oak supports the fruit bring cinnamon and some vanilla to the mix. A moderate funk on the cleaner, more presentable side of the Brett aroma. The is a low spice and herbal note as well which is hard to tell of that's the yeast or hops bringing the spice.

T: The taste matches the nose so well; again with a medium aroma of red currents, more of a tannic red grape and sharp tartness. Oak also provides a supports the fruit bringing medium vanilla and a touch of cinnamon. The spice and herbal note is a bit strong in the flavor being about medium-low level. The balance is pretty tart with a moderate sweetness in the middle but a an off dry finish. Followed up with a quick currents and dried cherry aftertaste.

M: A medium bodied beer with a medium level of carbonation.

O: A fruity beer with a great sweet-tart balance and some oak character. Pairs very nicely with food, probably a great compliment to a rich meal. An excellent sour beer that is well worth seeking out should you enjoy yous beer a bit on the tart side. It's not so tart as to be out of line and is well worth consideration as a classic example of the style.
