This beer was reviewed blind thanks to quirkzoo and the Blind BIF 7

Bottles 5A & 5B from Quirkzoo, not necessarily a pair but hell, why not.

Both bottles are lightly waxed, red and yellow. good grief, these bottles look beautiful together, and I can smell the aromas already.

5A Pours a dark cherry red with very little foam. There is a ring of bubbles around the glass but no real foam. The aroma is all grape tannin. It smells like a young merlot. Wow, the taste is very grape like. I'm getting a lot of grape skins and bitterness. Its very good and enjoyable,and finishes very tart. I keep going back for another sip. Very tart and slightly acidic. I really have no guess on these. I'm guessing this could be a flanders red, but not sure.

5B Again, a lot of grape skins but a bit sweeter. this beer is like a chardonnay compared to the merlot of 5A. Light bodied, a bit more foam, there is some apple, pear, maybe a bit of coriander, grape skins. I'm picking up some oak as well. Very light bodied and well carbonated. Again, I don't have a guess. Its definitely something I've never had, along with 5A.

5B is way more drinkable, while 5A is definitely more flavorful.
so I guess its time to see what quirkzoo sent me…

I almost don't want to tear off the labels because these beers are so enjoyable that its nice to drink them without knowing what they are…

5B-Trinity TPS Report

Well excuse my language but holy shit! This is just insane. Quirkzoo you went above and way beyond with these. What I thought was wine flavor was the cherries and oak in The Flavor. I'm really at a loss for what to say after this. To me these were two beers that I thought I'd never get to try and tasting them blind is exactly what this BIF is about. Big wants for sure and all I can say is thank you.

750 ml bottle, barrel TBB 106, bottle 1283 3/13. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a small fizzy white head that quickly goes to a small dusting.

The aroma is tart and funky with some brett, tropical fruits and flowers.

The flavor is lots of tart acidic sourness with some spices and a bit of iron. The mouthfeel is rather thin and watery with no carbonation.

Overall, an OK sour. Lots of acidic sourness, but very thin, watery, under-carbonated and simple.

Thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of tart, funky lemons with some funny Belgian yeast mixed in. The flavor is heavy on the brett. I get a lot of dry, leather components as some strong barnyard funk. There is also a little bit of lemon in the flavor and some light to medium tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours a hazed straw color with much effervescence. A modicum of head retention & lacing

S: Grassyness, sourness, lime zest

T: Follows the nose, lemongrass, white pepper, pears & light grapefruit notes up front. Lovely dryness, delicate spicyness ( Keffir? ) . Finishes tart, with lovely tropical & citrus fruit, plus a little white pepper

MF: Light bodied, delicate carbonation, dryness

Super drinkability, albeit bloody expensive. Could drink this all summer long , if someone else was buying
