Consumed 9/27/14

Split with Goblinmunkey7

A: Medium to deep purple, brown up close - an interesting hue with some browns - pours with a small, off-white head, fades to virtually nothing but leaves a few streaks

S: Somewhat light rather than pungent - some light sourness and tart notes, with some barrel and dark fruits - cherries - musty wood with some general woody mustiness - damp, earthy, old cellar - some yeasty aromas

T: Old, ripe funk - lightly unpleasant at first, but it grows on you - straight-up bacterial weirdness with mostly lactic notes - very wet, damp sourness - lightly tart - some old, musty barrel - an overall flavor of dark fruits, with some stone fruits and old cherries - cherry flesh - funkiness seems to build as it gets warm and the general watery character subsides

M: Light to medium, minimal carbonation, smooth - oddly watery, as if this was overly old, but this bottle is not that old (or oxidized)

O: If this is the "Sour Version," I may be more interested in the "Very Sour Version"

This is weird, but perhaps not as weird as I expected. There are some nice sour and funky notes here, but it also tastes simultaneously too old and too young. Maybe this was not the best year. I might try this again.

3.11/5  rDev -21.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: Deep purplish red with a small creamy off-white head. Drops to a small wispy cap with a slightly thicker collar. No lacing.

Smell: Oak. Sour cherry in abundance. A touch of raspberry and a jammy fruit quality. Slightly lactic with some citric notes. Powdery yeast as well. Some grassy and earthy elements thrown in the back. Screamingly tart on the back of the nose. Mild caramelized malt sweetness with a ton of tannic oak. Heavy barrel influence. Cherry skin and lots of cherry juice and flesh. Vinous in good measure. Deep red wine. Slightly musty. Some sharp cheese and gym sock and sweat.

Taste: Oaked sweaty gym socks. Deep tannic oak with a vaguely salty and slightly sour flavor. Some cherry skin and juice as well. Slightly citric with some lactic elements in the back. A ton of oak and something that tastes like rotten fruit. Slightly bready malt presence with some backing sweetness. Almost like vomit on the back of the swallow. A touch of red wine and some grape must. Earthy with some woody and mild floral elements. Yeast adds a dry, almost powdery, flavor to the finish.

Mouthfeel: Mediumish body with no carbonation. Slightly slick on the inital sip. Finishes clean.

Overall: So much barrel.

It's a soured version of the barrel it lived in. Could stand to dry out a little and pick up a bit more of a tart edge, but the base flavors are in there. Pick up a bottle and sit on it for a few years and it might be worth the sticker price.

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

Date: 7/28/14
Location: Half Time Mamaroneck
Glassware: Tulip

Appearance: Auburn to brown red in color. With a head that is dark brown in color. The beer has some viscosity as it clings to the glass when swirled. A whisp of carbonation is all that remains after a quick swirling. Mostly clear with some yeast flakes that can be found at the bottom of the bottle.
Aroma: Light in most aromas. The souring yeast plays the biggest role. The cherries are present. There is a light astringency from the oak and the alcohol from the Bordeaux barrels are noticeable as well.
Taste: The beer is a little on the watery side. While I do get some of the expected tartness it's more faded then I would have imagined for a two year old. The Brett plays the largest role followed by the fruit. The Bordeaux barrels are quite nice as they provide mild amounts of oak, alcohol and a little grape.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is viscous as the wine barrel really seems to take over this aspect of the beer. The beer is medium to medium/light bodied with light carbonation on the tongue.

Notes: Batch #16 2012 Bottle #1365

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Batch #16 vintage 2012 bottle 4549.

A deep garnet red in the glass with a classic dark brown mahogany color, even a dark orange towards the lip of the glass. Not much head, what is is about a light tan one finger head, but it's creamy and the puck always sticks around. Pretty solid.

This is a real interesting nose. Great woody and oak aromatics, splinters and hints of beef jerky. Earthy soil bent. Tart mild malt qualities, and soft vanilla like sweetness. Incredible aroma, hints somewhere between creme brulee and sharp clove like cinnamon. Wow, incredibly impressive and complex. Wonderful stuff.

Palate just sings. Mouthfeel is creamy with a hint of light body and easy coating malts. Minimal tartness but a good mix of astringency lime quality and a chewy strangely pine hop in here somewhere. Malty mix of mild sour cherry quality and light vanilla. Unlike any other Flanders style I've ever had.

This beer needs it's own category. Truly a unique and wonderful creation.
