Thanks Sean!

Hazy, slightly murky brownish color. Aroma lacks big time: hard to decipher the fruit, predominantly spoiled malts and other disappointing scents. Bleh, I remember this being better.

Thankfully the taste is on the right track. Sour fruits, good funk, not as much flavor depth as I'd like but still enjoyable. A solid sour, though (thankfully) there are much better options available to me regularly.

Pours sort of an amber color with an off-white head. The nose is full of cherry and blackberry with a mild spiced cider note. A hint of oak, lemon, and a slight candy sweetness. Minimal funk, mostly grass, and a touch of vinegar. The flavor has a bit of oak to go along with intense fruitiness. Lots of cherry and blackberry notes, sweet tarts, oak, and mild vinegar. Not bad, but not a huge fan of this either.

750mL bottle poured into pint glasses due to lack of glassware - thanks for this extra, I forget who sent it at the moment

Hazy golden orange pour with a pinkish hue. Crop of white head dissipates pretty quickly, leaving little retention or lacing behind.

Acidic fruit in the nose with funky yeast and dark fruit. Blackberries and oak with red wine and grape skins.

Snap of biting sourness up front with blackberries, red grapes and currants. Oaky and vinous with plenty of red wine character and an earthy touch. Funky wild yeast, barnyard and jammy berry fruit sweetness. Mild backbone with oak and red wine, followed by continuing acidic sourness in the finish.

Medium body, higher carbonation, bubbly, dry and lingering on the tongue. A solid dark wild ale with plenty of berry fruit flavor, but doesn't quite stack up to some of the top flight sour producers.
