look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Blend #4, bottled on 6/6/13
Poured into a standard tulip glass.

Appearance: (4)
Pours an opaque light brown/amber with some nice orange highlights. An off white, tightly bubbled 2 finger head quickly forms and recedes at a good pace. The head leaves little to no lacing as it recedes.

Aroma: (4.25)
As as the beer is poured, huge aromas of ripe red berries fill your nostrils. Notes of juicy peach, pineapple and blood orange begin to surface alongside the berries as beer warms. A lactic tartness makes itself know immediately with it's characteristics of cherry pie filling and plum skin. There is a mild, musty barnyard funkiness alongside the mostly fruit forward nose. Along with some faint bread-y-ness, some soft notes vanilla and coconut from the bourbon and wine barrels round out the nose.

Taste: (3.75)
Immediately, as soon as the beer lands on your palate, you're blasted with clean, lactic acidity; predominately notes of tart cherries, berries and lemon juice. Following this tartness are some notes of citrus and a lightly herbal hop character. The beer finishes dry, tart and bitter with a touch of bready maltiness. Long, lingering notes of bitter lemon peel, faint musty earth, coconut, vanilla and wood tannins. A tad boozy on the back end; noticeable bourbon barrel characteristics.

Mouthfeel: (4.25)
Heavy bodied with a creamy texture. Moderate carbonation.

Overall: (3.75)
A wonderfully aromatic sour.; definitely one of the fruit forward(without having actual fruit added) that I've ever smelled. Unfortunately, most of the fruity aromatics are not carried over in taste; Most of the juicy, tropical yeast driven characteristics that are there in taste initially, are quickly overwhelmed by barrel presence and hop character. This is a very unique sour beer.
