Bottle to ommegang flute wine glass
A:burnt orange colored with hints of amber in there too. There is lots of bubbles but almost no head or lacing. It is a little bit cloudy but basically transparent.
S: surprisingly there isn't much funk in here but on the other hand the rye comes out here in a spicy way but not a powerfully one. There are fruity notes in there too and faint hints of oak.
T:upfront it is pretty sour in a few ways: it has a nice tart acidity too it but not overwhelming, it also has a sweeter more fruity sour taste and the two blend together very well. Outside of the sour flavor there is some fruity juiciness and some spicy rye notes along with some oak flavor in the finish that balance the beer out while letting the sour flavor be the show case.
M: the feel is smooth and despite being really sour not overwhelmingly puckering so it is easy to drink. The sour flavor does stick to your mouth throughout the finish. It is also juicy in the feel that adds to its drinkability which is impressive considering its high abv and power flavors.
O: this probably the second most sour beer I have ever had (behind motherfunker) but that is a good thing. It is also extremely easy to drink as it has a sweetness to balance the sour to make it like candy and rye to make those flavors all balance out plus the feel adds to it. Overall I'm very impressed and highly recommend despite the high price tag in some markets

4.13/5 rDev -3.7%

A natural orange juice color meets the eye with a tinge of peach. The head was foamy and tight.
The nose is tart, sour and a bit acidic with cherry and lemon juice like aromas.
Tempered sour fruit first meets the palate with citrus acidity. Oranges, lemons and a grapefruit juice flavor hold through as it finishes with oak, cream and cider.
The feel is not too tart, no pucker factor at all, with smooth thickness and drinkability.
The barrel must really even this sour out, as its not too tart, but the flavors were easily preserved.
