Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Beaver13 on 07-17-2013

Heavy in Roast, Chocolate, and Special B malts this beer comes off with a unique and unexpectedly dry profile. Combining two Brettas lends a milder barnyard, but heavily funky character accented by an apparent 'natural cork' flavor. Aging the beer on French oak Barrels and allowing it to properly develop, attenuation is high revealing a light body and notes of astringency. Balance is created by the addition of three special golden ingredients: Honey, Golden Raisins, and Mustard Seed.

750 ml bottle, bottle 1/13 1337, barrel TBB 1-6. Pours dark amber brown with a very thin fizzy head that quickly almost completely disappears, other than a little constant bubbling from the bottom of the glass.

The aroma is some sweet caramel, tart acidic fruit and funk with a little butyric acid.

The flavor is sweet sugary malts with tart sour fruit and a little funk. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with very low carbonation.

Overall, great name but a not so great sour.

A- Dark brown body that borders on black. Sticky pale white lace on the edges of the glass. 4.25

S- Tart, earthy, acidic, thick malt aroma. Oud bruin maybe? Something salty in that aroma. 4

T- Starts off very much like an oud bruin, dark roasted malt meets tartness. The beer takes a whole new approach on the finish with a lemony flavor. Brown sugar emerges and offsets the tartness and acidity. 4

M- It's sour as hell when it's not tart. Woosa. Not an easy-drinker by any means but it can be slowly enjoyed. 3.5

Pours a murky chestnut with a thin tan head. Trace amounts of lacing & head retention

S: Sourness, wine barrel ( Chardonnay?). Horse blanket

T: Red wine, oakyness, sourness & dryness up front. Grape juice sneaks in as this warms, a little black currant, & little vinegar, more oakyness. Finishes dry, acidic & with much red grape, faint hints of woody hops

MF: Medium bodied, near zero carbonation. Acidic & dry

Pretty interesting, not the best I've had, but in the neighborhood

12.7 ounce wax capped bottle. Served in a chalice, the beer pours dark brown with about a half inch tan head that fizzled away quickly. Pretty much no lacing at all. Aroma is tart, the brew smells like vinegar, tart berries, lemon peel, and some chocolate and roasted malt. It tastes like vinegar, tart cherries, lemon, mustard, chocolate, oak and some red wine. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's slick with a moderate amount of carbonation. I liked this brew, and the mustard seed made it really interesting. But for the most part it's a good sour ale, as the tartness stood out in this brew. I'd like to try this one again. $8.99 a bottle.
