2.8/5 rDev -32%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
Poured into an E&J Cask & Cream glass on 12/8/12
Bottled: Feb 11 2011
Rustic appearance; tobacco and copper hues. One and a half finger head drops to about 1/4th of an inch. Foam clumps at the collar and trails up to lace on the glass. Good lace.
Smells woody and funky; moderate acidity. Vinous and floral tones drift atop sweet grains and mild prairie grass notes. I really like the barrel on this one; it's clean, not musty.
Wow, the taste is a lot funkier and mustier than the aroma. Moderate amounts of sourness tempered by a spot of sugar to cut the puckering aspects. The sugars are compounded with warmth, loaded with grapes and dark fruits.
Medium body with something of a creamy feel despite gritty underpinnings and moderate carbonation. As it warms it starts to get slick with sugars and some alcohol.
While there are some decent aspects, I don't much care for this one overall. Very disheveled.

On tap for Churchill's Renaissance 2013 at Churchill's Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.
Pours a hazy copper with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with some fruity and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with a sour fruity flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some nice sour flavors that make it easy to drink.
Serving type: on-tap
