4.1/5 rDev -6%
Draft at the brewery on the occasion of the Odio Equum release, reviewed from notes. Ten ounce pour into a snifter gives a deeply reddish amber color and a low, white head. A lot going on in this one - quite sour with lemon and other fruit acidity, touches of blueberry with a fairly assertive juniper character. Berries through the midpalate, vinous. A good amount of funky depth. There’s perhaps a little clash here and it’s thrown off balance somewhat, but an interesting experiment and pleasant drink regardless. The oak barrels used were neutral, so none of that for me.

Drinking this at the brewery for their Momi Hiwa release party! Pours up a dark pink with a light white dome. Aroma of sour cherries, lemons, other light fruits. Tastes of sour sour sourness. Light fruits. A little must. Light bodies smooth carbo. Nice

Blonde sour with blueberries and juniper aged in neutral barrels for 3 years. 10oz for $10.
A - Pours a red hue with a bit of a blue tint, making it somewhat pinkish. Nice egg shell head that dies to a light white collar.
S - lots of really nice sour funk, little bit of citrus, some fruity bubblegum and just hints of juniper. Its almost seems like a bit of sour blueberry. Brett and funk. Really awesome smell.
T - sour and tart blueberries, citrus and really nice brett. The oak from the barrels comes thru in the taste. More of that fruit bubblegum - reminds me of that fruit strips gum.
M - really creamy and bubbly. Sour first then tart. The citrus leaves a tangy zing in the corners of the mouth and on the lips.
O - wonderful stuff. I wish they bottled this. The blueberry is fantastic with the overall characteristics of the blonde. The sour aspect is perfect along with the tart finish. Outstanding!

a sour ale spiked with juniper and blueberry, then barrel aged for 3 years. pours a curious shade of cloudy pink, like a fruit juice infused beer, with a tiny head of clear bubbles. the nose is really pungently sour, bretty and oaky too. possibly going to be a sweet taste, the nose has definite blueberry and pine to it, and alcohol. taste is funky and different, the acidic tartness and berry juice comes first, then a weird sort of candied flavor, followed by the juniper i the finish, which to me is where this beer goes wrong. it literally burns on the way down from the juniper, like a poorly made, or navy strength gin. its hot and caustic and a little unpleasant. i couldnt drink more than one of these for that reason. the mouthfeel is medium bodied and very dry, this beer almost makes me thirsty. not a total winner, but a creative brew for sure. worth a taster if you make it to the tap room.
