maybe the weirdest beer i have had in 2015, truly an oddity. its very pale in color, unexpectedly so, clearly none of the scottish ale type darker and redder malts, this is a hazy blonde beer with a very fizzy white head. it smells like lemon lime gatorade, no joke, an astute observation by thebrewo as we shared this bottle, but i have to agree 100%, its literally yellow gatorade. there is a funky smoke to it as well though, honey baked ham comes to mind, with the meaty aspect coming from the smoke, and the barrel obviously having a big impact on this one. the taste is just like the nose, with both gatorade and baked ham being obvious flavors in this. that sounds kind of gross, but its actually incredible. the barrel aged portion is a big contributor, smokey and peaty as they come, but its so cool to have it be in a beer thats not malt heavy, and for it to be a sour nonetheless, insane! the sourness is major, its puckery, but also woody like a campfire being lit. cant say if this is one of my favorites or not, but it is literally a work of art, not to be missed for the curious palate. ducato has been up and down, but this is as interesting as beer gets these days, and its a big hit for me. dry as they come, and carbonated as effervescently as you could imagine, its named perfectly, and i will never forget the experience. not often i can say that these days...

330ml bottle -> tulip

murky off yellow color with a moderate head. smell is very sour and tart with lots of lemon but the peat is also very prominent. quite an interesting smell and very unusual. the taste is honestly just like the aroma. starts off lip puckeringly sour but quickly changes to smoky/peatyness. very very different. it ends refreshing believe it or not. i think i really love this... maybe more so because its just so different than any other beer ive ever had.

I can't go into detail on terminology, but I can say that I'm hunting for this beer wherever I can find it because it's the most unique and delicious beer I've ever tasted. It's loaded with smokey flavor, meat, and yet it ends refreshing. I highly recommend this and I have to say, it's my favorite beer.

16 oz. served in a tulip at Max's Taphouse in Baltimore. From notes.

A: Pours a dark copper color with a finger's worth of white-colored head. The head on this is beautiful - it's extremely creamy, with fantastic retention to boot. A nice ring of lacing is left behind.

S: Holy. Friggen. Peat. While the peat is very strong - perhaps even too strong for some - the lesser notes of peat (like burnt rubber) are nicely hidden. Letting it open up will give it some additional notes of brett funk and tart lemon. It's hard to explain why, but it just works.

T: It starts off with some lemony tartness, which quickly transitions to an assload of peat flavors. A slight vinous characteristic appears on the back end. This is very very VERY peaty - somehow, everything stays balanced. It's the whole art of adding one extreme flavor to another extreme flavor, and hoping they somehow coexist. Usually that idea falls flat on its face; but in this one, Ducato pulled it off, and the end result is fantastic.

M: This has a tannic feel befitting a sour ale. It remains light on the palate, and could even be called refreshing. Wait, there's no "could be" about it, it IS refreshing. Carbonation is pretty much medium.

O: Not for everyone at all - I was with someone else who ordered this, and he absolutely hated it. Me, I absolutely loved the sour/peat interplay going on here. This is so deliciously unhinged in the best way, and you bet I'll be looking for this one again.

Pours a coppery-amber color with a voluminous white, creamy looking head. Good lace left behind.
Smell is nicely sour, oak and cedar, malt and the scent of a bandage just out of the packaging (that's not a bad thing). A good balance.
Taste is very tart, sour, acidic with a vinegar/bandage mixture following close behind the initial taste with a smokiness bringing up the rear. Balance is heavy to the sour until it becomes an aftertaste. Still sour but the smoke steps up then.
Light bodied, similar to a wheat, with an aggressively tangy effervescence. Not a smooth kind of beer, more of a palate wrecker without being a hoppy bastard. Can't see having it again but glad I did once.
