375mL bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks for sharing Matt!

(A)- Pours a dark burnt sienna color. Some good white froth and lacing.

(S)- A nice oaky acidic vinegared profile with subtle dryness and leathery fruits.

(T)- A very nice combination of dry stony leathery fruits meets a lovely balance of oaky acidity.

(M)- A great carbonation level meets a lovely balance of dry fruits and oaky acidity. The dry finish is quite pleasant.

(O)- Very impressed with this one. An expertly blended and balanced sour that could honestly go up with some of the classics in the flanders style and have nothing to be shy about.

Pours a deep burgundy-brown color. Looks pretty clear. Smallish light beige head, fairly fizzy. The bubbles die away to not much after a minute or two. Aroma is sour and wood with a touch of funk. I was expecting a more acidic beer, and while it does trend that way a tad, this beer has a pretty nice balance of sour, wild flavors. There's a lot of sour fruit knocking around. Grapes, blackberries, peaches, cranberries, raspberries, apricots. While the funk is relatively mild, it does contribute and give the beer some depth. Best of all, there's none of that bile note that plagues so many American sours (at least for me). Solid woodiness and bretty funk. The taste has a pretty good acid bite running throughout. There's some soured maltiness, giving the beer a bit of body. Fairly vinous. A bit harsher than the aroma but it still doesn't go overboard. Quite dry. Light body. Very good beer.

375ml bottle batch 2 $11.99. Burgundy color with a decent head at first. Looks just fine. Aroma is pretty nice, oak, wood, vinegar (in a good way of course). The flavor is not as good as the aroma, slightly sour, touch of barrel, slightest hint of a milkiness. Overall this is a fine enough beer but at this price point I expect a lot more. When I pay $11-$14 for a Russian River beer I am wowed just about every time despite having had the beer before multiple times. This didn't move me and for $12 it really should. The hardest part for me us that WWBV and WWBI did wow me and they cost less money.
