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! :-)

Reviewed from notes. 750ml bottle shared by Richard - thanks.

A: Pours amberish brown with a half-inch thick off-white head which lingers briefly before settling to the rim and leaves spotty lace.

N: Fruity, oak barrel, sourness, funk, malty grains.

T: Dark fruits, tannic, vinous, funky yeast, mellow sourness, faint roast and chocolate overtones.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes mildly prickly, tannic, sour and fruity.

O: The whole being better than the sum of the parts sort of thing. Enjoyed.
