Bottle shared by Justin at Curran's tasting.

Pours a dark reddish brown, with a small filmy head, about a quarter inch or less, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like cherry, oak, barnyard funk.

The taste is similar. Mildly tart and funky, and only the slightest bit lactic, keeping it fairly drinkable. Some cherry and sour dark fruits, a bit vinous, and lots of oak, with some good wood bitterness. Lots of great funk in here that stays fairly subtle, doesn't knock you over the head.

Light bodied, very drinkable. There is a medium amount of carbonation.

First beer from the ever hyped Tired Hands, I really enjoyed it.

500 mL (25 oz.) bottle purchased at the brewery on the release date (Sun., 04/13/2014), unclear brewing/bottling date but allegedly spent 10 months in oak barrels, poured into my The Lost Abbey Teku glass, drank 04/15/2014 over an hour.

A: 3/3 - red-brown coloration, minimal clarity (cannot see through), off-brown/khaki head persists as a 1/2 finger glass lacing throughout the pour, moderate alcohol legs

S: 11/12 - barnyard sour notes admixed with moderate tannins with some background oak notes; some mild malt and alcohol notes

T: 17/20 - on the anterior tongue, there's a moderate sourness - sour stone fruit, apple cider and tart lemon, in the middle of the mouth, some of the vinous qualities arise - tannins, grapes and barnyard qualities - with some mild oak-barrel notes; the alcohol is present but certainly not overwhelming in the taste with some minor malt characters for balancing

M: 5/5 - moderate bodied and appropriately carbonated for an American wild ale; really nice dry, crisp finish that doesn't linger

O: 9/10 - an excellent oak-aged Flanders red - tart, refreshing, dry with a complex aroma and flavor that emphasizes the vine; reminds me of Russian River's Supplication, which is high praise, and, for $16/bottle, this is worth the price and trading for

TOTAL = 45/50

Bottle from the brewery, poured into a 10oz. TH stem glass.

Deep mahogany-amber color, lively carbonation, an inch or so of frothy white head, which sank to a nice collar, coating the glass with lacing. In the nose, oak and sour fruits, earthy barnyard funk, light acetic acid. Sour taste up front, not overpowering, vinous with hints of cherry, red grapes, vanilla, vinegar, bready malts, subtle barrel notes, with a grassy funk. Mouthfeel was crisp, body was medium, with a lingering tartness. Nicely crafted, and super balanced.
