look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep hazy orange with no head. A few bubbles and a thin collar. Not a lot else going on.

Smell - Citrus acidity and some grape/white wine like fruits. Oak.

Taste - Quite sour. Light fruits surround the sourness. Some malts. A bit of acetic acid and oak in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Oaky and dry. Low carbonation.

Overall - This has probably lost a lot of complexity over the years. Pretty good right now though.

Lots of wood, fruit and soured malt flavors. I guess I was expecting some kind of religious experience from my first taste (might have tried one other awhile back) of a Veritas, and it didn’t quite live up to that. Still, it was a very nice sour. The sour was pronounced and went well with the malt notes. Blackberries, oak, citrus rind, wine, restrained funk. I might appreciate this one more with a larger taste. Finishes with a pucker. Quite dry and probably getting drier. Pours a hazy, fading red. Little to no head, and what was there dissipated quickly. Very good stuff.

A: That hazy deep yellow/orange that is from unfiltered beer with caramel malts.

S: You can tell that the beer your about to drink is going to beer sour. Estery and sulfurous.

T: Tart and sour is 90% of the taste of this beer. One of the best sours I've had. There is very subtle caramel flavor n the background.

M: A little viscous. Very carbonated which is excellent. The sharp bitterness from the carbonation goes really well with the sour.

O: Top 3 sours I've ever had. Give anything to trade for this beer.
