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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Murky like muddy pond water, orangish brown color in the light, with two fingers of foam initially. Sticky sheets of foam in the glass, wispy skim across the surface.

Nicely woody aroma, lightly fruity with some citrus and vaguely tropical notes. Lightly acetic. First impression is more Oud Bruin than anything.

Taste has some sharper acetic acid initially, moving into tannic bitterness, with flashes of fruity citrus in the middle and trace farmhouse funk. Aftertaste of white grape and starfruit. Carb seems low, the acidity carries it along though. Kinda reminded me of a La Folie/Le Terroir blend.

Perfect pairing with Humboldt Fog.
