Bottle picked up locally, enjoyed from a stemless snifter wine glass. Brew poured a deep brown almost black. Thin bubbly cap that didn't hang out long. Nose is dark sour brett and vinegar. Big tart flavor. Burgundy sour. Big mouth pucker, one of the more sour crooked stave brews I have tried. Vinegar. Overall not a bad brew but very different than the other bretta seasons I have tried. Glad to have tried but not really my bag, some of their dark sours I love, this was a bit too much for me.

poured into a tulip glass after aging a bit

appearance - dark brown on the pour with very little lacing.

Smell - roasty malts up front and i get some coffee and chocolates

Taste - super tart up front which leads into a sweet citrus taste to be complimented with malts and tart at the end

Mouthfeel - lots of acidity up front, but finished quite sweet

overall - by far my favorite seasonal st. bretta after letting them all age. this one had so much going on, that I found each sip different

Dark brown, thin head that leaves just a few islands floating on the surface.

Very odd scent. Musty and tart, with a bit of sour milk. Light citrus. It's unappealing.

Thankfully, the tart and citrus are more pronounced in the flavor. Juicy and sour. A hint of dark roasted malt.

Mouthfeel is on the thin side of medium, as is the carbonation.

Overall, very meh. It's hard to get past the strange smells spouting from it.
