Brewed in 2011 with a best by date of 2016.

Not much head. Small amount of off white head bubbles produced from a vigorous pour. They dissipate quickly but stick around the edge of the glass for a bit. Looks like a hazy iced tea/dark orange.

Oh my the smell...as soon as I cracked this a sweet plum smell erupted getting me excited about this. There is a sweet sugariness along with some grape. Reminds me of must.

The flavor took me by surprise. There is plum but also grape, iced black tea, a light acidic character, slight oak, some berry and cherry as well.

Very easy drinking light to medium body with very light carbonation.

Another winner as I delve into Italian brews.

Appearance -Very nice murky golden orange, essentially zero head.

Smell - Funky fermenting fruit, acid, minimal booze

Taste - very tasty hint of plums unfortunately a bit overshadowed by the brett. I like brett but the strength of this beer I think is in the fruit so it would have been nice if this came out a bit more more. A bit more boozy flavor than many sours at 6.2%.

Mouthfeel - Appropriate level of carbonation, thinner mouthfeel typical of sours.

Overall - I love sours so I always love to find a new and unique one. Will buy again.

Hazy plum color with off-white that goes away completely. Aroma has intense fruits. Plums, fermenting apples, apricots along with a musty cellar note. Taste follows with fermented fruits, mustiness, hay, barnyard funk. Body is on the light side, very dry with low carbonation. Really rustic sour ale with intense natural fruit character.

Thanks, Jason. Hazy grapefruit color in the glass, low carbonation topped by a thin fleeting head. Very fruity, plummy nose; plenty both of skin and flesh. Some mineral and oak barrel, too, along with gentle tartness. The palate has a big fruit presence, though there's no sweetness; it's dry, mildly tart and earthy. The plum skin and oak lend a moderate but pleasing tannic bite, which doesn't linger long into the finish. Mildly vinous, tart, jammy aftertaste. Nice stuff, not exactly world-class but very enjoyable.
