3.15/5 rDev -11.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3
A: Pours an opaque dark brown with amber highlights, with a tan head that dissipates quickly. No lacing.
S: Lots of dark fruit esters abound; figs, prunes, stewed red apples. Rich malts blend with a potent acidic tartness; rather vinous.
T: Very tart and acidic throughout, with notes of sour cherries and prunes. Very sharp finish where a strong presence of brett comes to the fore.
M: Medium bodied with light carbonation.
O: An interesting beer, but could benefit from some balance to round out the very sharp tartness.
Serving type: bottle

a sampler from my bro, i suspect something went wrong. thin pour, weak head dies down to nil, just a bit around the edges. leaves a decent bit of lacing. nose is cherry/bit of leather/vinegar. appears a bit hazy, a deep reddish brown. a dry mouth feel makes me think of wine more than beer, and again i pick up a tartness that say "vinegar and old cardboard" far more than anything pleasant. maybe it's supposed to be like this, but i'm not finishing it.
update 5/5/13 seems this isn't my style, as friends of my brother are saying what i got was representative of the brew, and they like it, so . . . ymmv.
Serving type: growler
