750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep amber brown body. Medium off-white head.

Smell - Smells like a Flanders. Cherry and wood. Some caramel malt. Sharp vinegar.

Taste - Intense sourness. Vinegary sour. A bit of dark cherry, but mostly caramel malt. Wood and a strong sourness.

Mouthfeel - Very sour. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Man, it's sour. Simple beer, but way too sour.

Funkfest 2014... Syndicate hooked this one up... Very cool, my first beer from this brewery and I was pretty impressed.

A little hazy amber/reddish.. no real lacing.. the off white head rises up and dies back just as quickly.

Nose is a bit vinous with some cherry and something that I associate with apple skins/crab-apples. More sour/tart than funky, but there is a bit of Brett that combines with a hefty oak note.

Flavor has plenty of cherry/apple and the oak/vinous elements move this forward, a bit of residual sweetness/light acetic elements make me think Flanders.. Hints of roasty malts mesh well with the background sweetness... Pretty darn good.

Body is surprisingly heavy for the ABV... but it is soft and drinkable with a good small bubble carbonation.

I am stoked a friend/friends have a solid connection for this brewery... That said, Darrel/Spence... Don't fuck things up! :-)
