500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy deep copper body. Small white head that doesn't last. Ends up kinda pond-watery.

Smell - Musty and vinous. Bourbon. Slight hint of acetic acid. Very woody.

Taste - Much sharper sourness, but not all that sour. Vinegar and some red wine. Lots of oak. Bourbon. The flavor drops off rapidly, though.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe medium light. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Not very complex, but drinks ok. (475 characters)

Bottle from the brewery.
Pours a clear deep golden color with a good sized bone white head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of earthen tart citrus with a somewhat rustic light funky smell. Light cereal graininess and just a hint of cherry vanilla round out the nose. If there is oak or bourbon in the nose its faint. The flavor holds a hint of cereal grain with a touch of bready malt. Lemons and tart cherries pucker a bit before some earth and light sweet bourbon flavor finish us off. Moderate pucker with a light funky earthy rustic tone to it. Very nice American wild. (572 characters)

A: Pours a deep copper color with a fizzing cream colored head that settles down to nothing fairly quickly.

S: Really interesting smell here. You get this overlying musty, wet bourbon barrel note, but it's nicely restrained. Red cherries, lemon meringue, vanilla and almost an almond meal note in there. Smells really fantastic.

T: You get a good amount of tart fruit upfront. Green kiwi, tart red cherry skin and maybe just a touch of lemon. Then the flavors sort of glide into a smooth lightly bready malt and gently bourbon finish with a good smack of tart red cherry and underripe plum skin. Leaves a lingering tartness in the back of your mouth, almost to the point of being bitter. Everything in here works really well. I'm a fan. (739 characters)
