lip puckeringly sour, not for the faint of heart.

Pours no head; some light bubbles on the top from a vigorous pour. Brew is a reddish, dark brown, and murky.

Vinegar, funk, and cherries carry the aroma, in that order of strength. A little vanilla and oak as it warms. A musky, sweet aroma comes out as it warms, as well, not unlike wet dog.

Very tart and sour, with a lot of fruit carrying the back-end, vinegar up forward, and oak in the middle. Funky notes throughout. Cherry pits and grass.

An absolutely flat beer; no carbonation. This seems to be normal. It also makes it feel wrong in your mouth. It's not silky smooth like a cask beer; it feels dead.

Great aroma, and an interesting flavor profile. Definitely a big-time sour. I personally do not like the flat mouthfeel, but if you can bear with it a few sips, you'll adjust, and the flavor is worth it.

Cuvée 2010. Bottle No. 4887.
Poured ~10C into a tasting tulip. Popped with no hiss. Uh oh!

A: Amber, fairly clear though a hint of haze and not a bubble in sight. With time a hint of a ring comes about the edge.
S: Dark dried fruit aromas with bretty barnyard notes with a soupçon of acidity.
T: Initially very old ale like with dark fruit, a hint of sweetness and a modicum of heat. Quicjly builds in the tartness department moving more into the true sour range, but with some fruity sweetness constantly playing across the palate. Quite interesting.
M: A challenging beer to drink due to its like of carbonation.
O: A very interesting beer I am glad that I got to try. Worthwhile getting another one.
