Extremely refreshing. It has a fig and date earthy taste with a strong tart lemony bitter taste. Nice bacteria flavor sour hit. This is so intense; I really like.

It has a nice, dark, nut-brown color with a two-finger bubbly tan head that leaves some lacing. A lot of bubbles coming up the side. It has a tart lemon scent, very strong and pungent.

500ml bottle. 2009.

Bought 2 of these a while back. Had the first a year ago without drama, this bottle geysered violently on opening until less than a third of the bottle remained. After cleaning up, poured a super turbid coca mahogany with an airy tan head that summarily drops without a trace.

Initially all about thick, leathery balsamic and carob notes with dry fortified undertones. Later on, sour cherry and stewed dark plums emerge and moderate diacetyl becomes increasingly apparent. Opens up further with light floral perfume, hints of nail polish remover finish it off. Busy and interesting.

More of the muscular woody, tobacco-y balsamic action. Quite gritty and astringent. Base oud bruin fruitiness is a little overpowered.

Light to medium body with silky and subdued carbonation. Unfortunately the booze latches on to the strong lactic character impeding drinkability.

A few flaws in execution but an intelligent concept with really satisfying complexity. Would like to see this brewed again.

On tap at the Avenue Pub in NOLA.

Brownish-red with light tan head that lingers well in tulip glass.

Smell is tart cherry with hints of wine.

Sweetness comes in first followed by a cherry tartness. Not too tart. Hints of wine present. No bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Prickly.

Overall this is excellent.

Serving type: on-tap
