Red wine and modest blackberries in aroma.

Flavor is blackberry dominant, with definite vinous notes. Fairly high acetic sour character.

Pours a nice deep red with an tan, airy head. The smell is all bready, musty funk at first. Opens up after a minute to give more dark berry and barrel character. The taste is quite a bit more complex. Very well balanced between sweet, tart, and funk. Both the blackberry and dates are present in the taste, much moreso than the aroma, and easily dostinguished. Lots of tannic oak and red wine notes. For as dry as it is there is still enough sweetness to round it out. Insanely drinkable sour and hard to believe it is pushing 9%.

I really enjoyed this one. It was a really well balanced tart finish with some nice fruit.

Pours a translucent dark red with a creamy light brown head. The aroma has a bold musty Brett yeast odor, a note of blackberries, a red vinous scent and a bit of cask. This brew begins with a strong sour berry flavor, then a funky yeastiness creeps in with the finish being sweetly tart with a slight red wine presence...
