A: Dark brown with a deep haze. A cross between dark muddy water and black tea. Viscous sticky dotted tan foam. Low carbonation.

S: Slightly sour black cherry and prunes. Earthy. Rich brown leather and wet wood chips. Tangy and slightly lactic.

T: Starts off cool, watery and refreshing. Rich tanginess of cherries, cranberry and pomegranate. More dark salty chocolate and sour raspberry comes through. Slight mild fruit sweetness finishes long with a little tingle.

M: Thin light and refreshing. The tanginess finishes the beer clean. Very mild sweet dryness finishes.

O: I really liked this one. The mix of slight sour, dark fruit and rich earthiness really worked well together. This beer had a lot of flavor, but in a well rounded way unlike other beers that just try to be the most sour or the most roasty.

3.3/5  rDev -10.8%

12.7oz bottle poured to tulip

Nice deep brown color, fairly opaque. 1 finger of well tanned head lays over quickly, but a decent lace of bubbles persists

Aroma is strongly barnyard: bit of horse, bit of runoff from the horse. That dissipates as it breathes to a mild tang with some brown sugar / molasses notes

Taste has some sour and a bit of oak, Nice, but not particularly memorable

Good carbonation with a fairly thing body, pretty lively brew on the tongue

Very nice polite likable brown, perhaps a nice mild springboard if you were introducing someone to belgian sours. For my own purposes, there are some better examples I'd reach for over Bacchus
