3.11/5  rDev -12.9%

Poured into a tulip. I'm hoping this is better than the last anniversary.

3.25 A: Mildly hazed deep amber color. Three fingers of fizzy beige head that falls quickly and leaves no lacing.

3.5 S: Interesting nose on this. Never smelled anything quite like it. Starts off with an intense mustiness and I mean intense. Dry-rotten sweat socks through and through. Maybe some basement must, but mostly sweat socks and dry barn wood. Behind that there is cherry and plum fruitiness along with cocoa and something along the lines of lemongrass. Not really any acetic acid in the nose, but there is some lactic.

3.0 T: The taste is nothing like the nose. The first thing you notice is a sharp acidity featuring both lactic and acetic acids, but it isn't too sour. It's still super musty though with sweat socks, basement, and dry wood. Lots of toastiness too with notes of cocoa, peach, plum, apple, and more apple. A touch of tannic astringency. I'm not sure if I like it or hate it.

3.0 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good carbonation level, but it sure is prickly. Lacking creaminess and spritziness. Sour peach finish.

3.0 D: Uinta makes some pretty good beers, but none of them are sours. Oh well, maybe 21st will be better.

A: A deep copper with a red hue and good clarity. The head tan composed of rocky bubbles that fade but after tasting it's not surprising since the high acid can kill head retention.

S: A fairly malty aroma with a moderate amount of barnyard funk. Some chocolate malt aromas and a bit of nuttiness.

T: A strongly tart beer with medium-light fruity notes, like currents and raspberry flavors. The sour is fairly acidic. There is a moderate malt flavor with some sweetness and chocolate but the balance is very sour. The finish is dry and the aftertaste is of chocolate malt and currents.

M: A medium-light bodied beer with a very strong level of carbonation.

O: The sourness lack complexity but it beats you over the head the a strong vinegar-like acidic tartness. The chocolate is an interesting addition but at time distracting. That being said I'd gladly pay a fair price for a few more bottles if I get the chance.

3.55/5  rDev -0.6%

750 ml caged and corked bottle, bottled on 03/01/13. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a reddish/brown color with about an inch light tan cola-like head that fizzled away quickly. There isn't much of any lacing at all. Aroma is nice but light, The brew smells like tart cherries, toffee, dark bread, and chocolate. I think the taste is more tart in comparison to the aroma. It tastes like tart fruit (cherries, apples, lemon), dark bread, chocolate, and some earthiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's well carbonated, and easy enough to drink. I think it's an interesting brew, I liked this more the longer I drank it. $11.99 a bottle.
