Bottle purchased and drank at Pizza Plant in Williamsville, NY.

Batch #4, 2013 bottling.

I can't believe this guy is 10% ABV. Amazing how no alcohol presence is felt at all- until the end, when you can feel it creeping up on you.

Pours a murky, hazy brown, with no head or lacing.

Smells like grapes, cherries, other dark fruits, vinegar, lactic acid, and oak.

The taste is similar, and awesome. Very complex. It is quite sour, but not palate shredding, which is nice. It doesn't overpower the other flavors present- which are oak, vanilla, grapes, cherries. I don't know if this was aged in red or white wine barrels, but I get notes of both red and white wine. I'm having trouble picking up any aspects of the underlying "bruin"- the brown ale- but that doesn't matter.

Medium bodied, with a lower amount of carbonation, and a tangy mouthfeel. Really, really drinkable, but you definitely want to take it slow to savor everything.

One of the best sours I've ever had, it's really well balanced, and really complex.

Bottle pour at the post-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, fruit, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but slightly one dimension in its sourness.
