October 2012 batch, about two months old.
A: Pours a semi-hazy, light amber. Big fluffy light tan head. Fades somewhat quickly, leaving just a speck or two of lacing behind.
S: Lemons, apple and tart grapes with traces of other fruits. Some crackery malt aspect. In fact, I swear I get graham cracker sometime, like graham cracker crust to be specific.
T: Very tart grape skin, apples and lemons up front. Borderline sour (stronger as it warms up), but at least it's crisp. Kind of an oaky leather in the middle mixed with wine. Turns graham cracker in the lingering aftertaste with more traces of tart fruits.
M: Decently full bodied and smooth. Drying on the back end.
O: Tough beer to score. Initial hit is very sour like a wild ale or a really bad saison. But it slowly gets better through the taste - decent in the middle with a really pleasant graham cracker crust aftertaste. I tried not to knock it down too hard, it's well balanced, complex and it has some aspects that I enjoy. But it has some really off flavors too with the extreme funkiness and sour notes. I ended up drain pouring it but tried to give it a fair shake on the scores.

Aroma- A fruity sour wine aroma dominates the nose, with notes of spicy and musty brett.
Mouth feel- Dry on the tongue and lite in body feels like lots of carbonation.
Appearance- Hazy Light auburn in color with a hint of red. Off white head.
Taste- Dry fruity start lots of cherry other pit fruits (plum) with a tart sour cherry finish. No hop flavor and it was hard to taste much else over the tartness of the beer. If you didn't get it in the first couple sips your taste buds kinda only get the tart flavor.
This beer is good a glass is really nice and refreshing but not something I would have a lot and get drunk off of.
Serving type: on-tap
