T - Tart oakiness, then autumn spices and the some subtle maple sweetness.

D - Lighter body and lower carbonation.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass at Smoke & Barrel as part of a DC bottle share. Bottle brought by WorldWideStout, much thanks. Vintage 2010. From notes.

Reddish orange amber body, with a light tan color, kind of creamy off the pour, fairly solid.

Bouquet brings an almost vinous apple wine like character, mild brett, with some large apple butter qualities along with some mild nutmeg and squash.

Palate hits with playful and noticeable carbonation. Light funk. A real interesting toasty quality to this and charred squash. Mild sugar sweet and sour balance. Some other fruits seem to come out the sourness accents. Orange and tangerine fruit as well.

Overall pretty interesting, kind of a bit of fun drink I must admit.

Thanks to AndrewK for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a clear dark orange with a fizzy khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is somewhat sour and tart with some malt, spice, and mild fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with some woody flavors and an acidic quality with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but it seems like there is just too much going on to be really cohesive.

Poured from the bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy reddish amber with a layer of off white head that fades to a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Vinegar and alcohol with some yams and a smell that reminds me of cooked vegetables. The sourness dominates and it reminds me of a flanders.

Taste: Vinegar and malt up front, definitely reminds me of a flanders. Dark fruit with a sweetness and strong tartness in the finish. The usual autumn maple flavors are definitely in the background.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This was very different from the original version. More like a flanders than anything else. Don't know that I'd have another, but I'm glad I got to try it.
