Another bottle brought over by Beace at Jackie O's...Pours a medium brown with amber notes, a watery tan head, not much to look at....A really nice aroma of oak, bourbon, acid, rye, and sourness. Can't believe this combo would work but it does....The taste brings out a lot more oak, vanilla, bourbon, rye, not as much sour comes through. Really good and highly drinkable.

If you're looking for a barrel aged rye this is more of go to then a wild ale, although its sour, the sourness is more of an accent. Worth trying.

Well I'm just pleased to be drinking this. Pours hazy orangish red with a small white head which fades to a small ring and floaties. The aroma is nice, but not too strong. Vanilla, cranberry, cherry and oak, with faint wiffs of rye/whisky coming through. The flavor is nice with big flavors presented softly. Tart berries, oaky vanilla notes, faint rye in the background, tart, very very light sour horse notes. Very nice velvety creamy mouthfeel. A good beer that could have sat in the barrel another month or two.

750mL bottle, cork and caged, listed at 6.6% on the label.

Pours a very dark reddish amber with a big, short-lived cream-colored head that leaves good lacing on the way down to a thin cap.

The aroma is tart fruit alongside oak, vanilla and plenty of whiskey. There is also a decent funky presence and some lactic sourness as well.

The flavor is even more tart with an initial lip-puckering sourness, lactic with some vinegar, paired with some tart cherries and other dark fruits. The finish is extremely dry and oaky with a bit of whiskey burn.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied, very dry with a lot of earthy funk lingering with the whiskey on the palate.

Another nice effort in the Woods series from Cisco. The whiskey presence is well integrated and doesn't overpower the flavor.

Full and Bye Rye- 750 corked and caged. Pours a dark amber with a huge off white head into a 22oz dogfish snifter. Rustic wood on the nose with a bit of alcohol. Light cherry flavor with a bit of oak, vanilla and a bit of vinegar. Pretty complex flavors, not too sure if they are all working together just yet. Slightly oily mouthfeel as it warms and gets a bit more tart. Interesting beer.

Thanks goes out to ybnorml for this brew.

750ml
Caged/Corked

Poured into a chalice a nice brownish color, nice carbonation, nice fizzy off-white head, with some nice puddles and sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, yeasty, with some tangyness, cherries. The taste is malty, alittle sweetness, yeasty, sour, slight cherry note, whiskey/oak. Medium body. Drinkable, a very tasty brew on a hot/windy day.

Thanks for sharing this, Peter. My beer fridge is stocked with ~ 30 beers that I've already ticked, so I needed something like this.

Pouring a dark amber with reddish brown highlights, this beer has a light brown head with good retention and lacing. The nose is quite excellent with a blend of bourbon (surprisingly big), oak, brown sugar and a little acid. Mostly acetic, there's some lactic as well. The palate opens with quite a bit of oak, vanilla and some bourbon along with a light acetic character. Quite oaky, but not particularly woody or heavy on astringent tannins if you ask me. Drying, oak-heavy finish with a moderate tannic character, this beer is very enjoyable. Medium-light in body with moderate carbonation, this beer has great flavors on the finish too. Recommended.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a hazy red-brown color with a white head. The aroma is tart cherries, oak and some other dark fruits. The flavor is tart cherries, oak and vanilla. Very drinkable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A good sour, but not as good as the Monomoy Kriek which was drank at the same tasting.

The beer pours a cloudy amber color with a 1/4" off-white head that fades to lacing. The aroma is great! It has a nice pale and crystal malt scent along with a kick ass brett sourness. It appears to be a regular amber ale fermented with brett. The taste is great as well. It has an awesome sourness. It's dry and mouth puckering with shit loads of brett character. The caramel malts provide some depth, but the sour flavor dominates the taste. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. These guys really know how to brew up some world class wild ales. This one is delicious.
