A hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Smells a touch metallic with some sweet sugar, caramel, and fruits. There’s a bit of a perfume aroma to it, maybe some oak, and a touch of vinegar. The flavor exhibits more metal character than the nose, which is unpleasant. Some sweet fruit and sugar notes, a tannic wood quality, and a light tartness. There are some decent flavors/aromas, but the metal is very off-putting.

Pours a somewhat murky reddish color with minimal head. Nose is of candied cherries, some funky Brett, a touch of acid, and some bright plum notes. Taste is mildly tart up front and gives way to candied fruits. Heavy Brett notes on the finish. Mouthfeel is moderate with medium carbonation. Overall, pretty nice but not sour enough considering the lactobacillus used.

Poured a pinkish dark red type of body with minimal fizzy pink head. A mix of sour or tart fruit, some minor grapefruit like sweetness and a touch of oakiness in the nose. A good tasting beer (that I did grow tired of awhile, mind you) that is simple but well-executed. Sour/tart fruit flavors for a good sipping sour type ale that aren't overpowering and has a crisp but not biting backbite/finish and has enough sweetness in the beer to keep it balanced.

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.
