Backlog of reviews from last week in CO, KS and KY. This was reviewed fully at the time of consumption to my phone at Moraine Park CG, Rocky Mountain National Park, CO.

A- Dark brown body poured out of a 375ml bottle into a chalice. A light nutty tan head forms on the beer to around half a finger with a frothy foamy consistency. Head retention is decent and a medium ring remains. Sheets of lace at the top of the glass with drizzle and spots below that.

S- Sour lactic acid pours out of the glass even in the aroma with the whiskey barrel coming in strong along with that. Wet oak, vanilla, raisin, caramel and molasses dark brown sugars.

T- Extremely sour lactic lemony acids decimate the taste buds with only a bit of room for other things to shine. Whiskey and vanilla come in and are smoothed out quite a bit. Brown sugar, toasted nuts, green apple, vinegar, wet oak, tart cherry, vinous grapes and molasses hints are pale in comparison to the acid. Strong brett horsey barnyard.

MF- Light end body that is beyond bone dry and the sourness probably plays into that. Carbonation at a moderate level with a foamy and somewhat creamy consistency. The finish is very very sour.

The first few sips show a lot of promise with whiskey vanilla and wet oak playing into the equation heavily but the sour takes over fast. Lactic acid destroys the palate and takes away somewhat from the overall experience. The aroma still holds up well after time, however.
