750mL bottle acquired through the Reserve Society. Bottled 9/20/13. Served in my shiny new Phish snifter (my wife the the absolute best!).

Pours opaque chestnut muddy brown with a full frothy finger of cream colored head.

Smells straight up sour. Barrel funk, lime and vinegar.

At least some of the base beer comes through in the taste but this is infected. Overbearingly sour lemon and vinegar. Way back behind a curtain of sour I get a little spice, bourbon and sweet potato- so there's at least trace evidence that this was supposed to be sometimg other than a soured mess. Bad.

Medium light body with decent carbonation. Lemon and a tiny hint of sweet potato soufflé in the finish.

Perhaps I shouldn't review a beer that I'm pretty sure is infected but I have no moral qualms over this negatively affecting the score. I pay way too much on the bottles, let alone shipping them accross the country to put up with this. So avoid this, at least the 2013 batch. Not worth buying, trading or shipping even if you think you're curious.
