500mL bottle from the Wicked Weed brewpub (Asheville, NC). 13.95. No bottling date but purchased 06/2014. Served in a goblet.

Pours a deep, barely transparent burgandy chestnut with about two fingers of heathered beige head. A splotchy, thin surface haze remains, leaving a consistent lace where the halo had rested.

The nose is sweet, tart and acidic with vinegar, berries, vague lemons, plums and a little wet hay funk. Even more dark fruit is apparent as it warms.

Taste is near-puckering with bittersweet blackberries, dates/plums, sharp wine barrel funk, dry red wine, vinegar, lemonade, hay, earth, a strange note of stale sugar and an element of sweat. Boldly sour with pleasant complimentary dark fruits and red wine barrel. Hides it's alcohol content quite well.

Medium full, dry feel with moderate carbonation. Finishes with tart, bittersweet berries, a yeasty funk and rich plums.

Oblivion is the most sour bottle I've had from Wicked Weed. I liked the interplay of sour and fruity with the wine barrel. I think I'll be grabbing a few of these next time I visit Asheville.

Part of a beer share, this beer followed Love Child No. 4.

A- Dark brown/amber with a frothy, khaki-colored head. 4.25

S- Cherry tartness, earthiness, peppery, and something flowery and garden-like. 4.3

T- Earthy and tart cherry, a slight lemony flavor. Not as robust as the smell nor as the beer that preceded it. 4

M- Funky, light-drinking, and slightly effervescent. The sourness is more apparent on the finish but it's not overwhelming. It's very light on the tongue and easy to gulp down. 4.2

I enjoy the lightness and the lack of the vinegar aspects that can consume a sour. It's very easy-drinking. 4.15
