Bottle courtesy of CrellMoset, thanks again!

Popped this open to celebrate what is hopefully a Phillies win in game 3 of the NLDS!

Pours a dark brown / amber color with a nice tight off white head.

Aromas... whoa! Vinegar earthy sourness, deep funky brett, and a touch of sour apples.

Taste is mostly sour, a slight vinegar taste, a bit sweet, with a apple cider like quality. Beer settles into some creamy malt flavors, tartness, crisp and dry. Finish is just a touch bitter, with oak and smoke like notes. Damn... what a complex and tasty beer.

Mouthfeel is very nice, full and thick, with a nice long finish.

Drinkability is great. What a tasty and complex beer, that isn't at all overpowering or overly strong. I can see where some of the great American breweries like Russian River, Lost Abbey, etc, are getting their inspiration from. Man, what a sour treat!

Go Phillies!
