2010 vintage. Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Pipeworks snifter.

A- pours brown with a 1" light tan head, some trails and small bubbles of lacing remain on the glass.

S- tannins, dark fruits, light vinegar, some sweet raspberries and cherries.

T- some sweet cherries and raspberries, vinegar, bitter dark fruits, asomemlightndark chocolate.

M- medium body and carbonation. Very slick and easy drinking.

O- very good oud bruin. Has just enough sweetness to balance the dark fruits and vinegar.

2014 bottle poured into a mini snifter.

A: Dark burgundy red. A little lacing and head, but dissipates quickly.

S: Like fruity vinegar. Acutely acidic. The sourness of this is almost overwhelming.

T: Super sour. Like biting a lime wedge sour, ok, not quite that sour. However, it is one of the most sour beers I have had. It does have a bit of a spicy fruit finish. If you like sours, you will probably like this. If you dont, you will probably hate it.

M: Tingly, a surprisingly thick feel. It is not a BA stout by any means, but for how puckering it is, its not very thin.

O: A great sour, it may only be released once a year, but had good availability despite that. Drinks great fresh.
