750mL bottle poured into taster - thanks alex

Pours a cloudy mahogany-reddish color with a thin crop of beige head on top. Fades into slick film and some traces of lacing on the glass.

Dark, earthy sourness in the nose with raisin and oak. Touches of red wine, cherry and dark fruit. A bit lactic and acidic, light warmth and rye spice.

Notes of dark fruit and rye spice up front, which adds a perception of hoppiness to the beer. Increasing sourness with red wine, grape skins, oak and raisin. A few hints of cherry with soft funkiness. Acidic and sour in the finish.

Medium body, higher carbonation, dry and crisp on the tongue. I've tasted a handful of the Woods Series and this was a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed the addition of rye to the brew, along with the darker, earthy sourness.

I was packing up a bunch of beers in preparation for a move and noticed the cork on this one had a slight leak, so in the fridge it went.

First, let me say that I am shocked by how good this beer is. It has the perfect balance of flavors - the brett funk is at just the right level and the flavor is full of fruit, some slight bitterness, good sweet/sour balance - just perfect.

I truly wish I had a case of this beer - and I rarely feel that way. I am not kidding when I say I put this beer on par with the best sours worldwide.

Now, why isn't this beer more popular? If anyone reading this happens to have an extra - please let me know - I could probably find something in my modest celler to trade with you.

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

A: Pours a deep murky red (when held to the light), almost brown. There is about one half finger of tan head that settles quickly. Not much lacing as it drinks.

S: The smell is sour, tart, and a little spicy. There are some big sour cherry and sour grape notes. I'm also picking up a bit of balsamic vinegar and touch of rye spice.

T: The initial hit is puckering tart with some nice spice. the beer falls a bit flat in the middle. It's just missing something. It's almost like it shifts directly to the finish. The finish is tart and astringent.

M: Medium bodied beer. There is a bit of stingy carbonation, but it's hard to tell if that is from the carb or the taste of the beer.

O: This beer is alright. It's a bit harsh, but it's not terrible. The truth is... the label states that this beer was aged for 13 months in a whiskey barrel, and I don't believe that this even saw a day inside a barrel. It's too effervescent (i.e. not smooth enough) for my liking.

M – Crisp and clean with a medium body. Nice carbonation.

O – A clean, dry, delicious, and assertive sour.

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

A: Hazy deep red brown pour with a nice white head. Thick, the head sticks around for a long time and laces nicely.

S: Vinegar, oak, very acidic and sour. The bottle says Whiskey, cherries, and vanilla. I guess I smell some cherries, but the other two certainly not.

T: The taste is really sour, I get the cherries a bit more on the taste than the smell. Acidic, funky, very good, but not a lot going on other than sour.

MF: Light, tart, carbonated very well.

O: This was really tasty, a nice mix up during a tasting I was in the middle of. I wish something else was happening other than the sour, but I didn't hate it.
