look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

From 05/04/12 notes. Had 2 glass of this at Pizzeria Paradiso in Dupont, Washington, DC, and then a third glass at the Big Hunt later on as I really liked it.

a - Pours a deep, purple-reddish color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of brett, sour grapes, sour cherries and dark fruits, spice, light oak. Awesome sour nose; I really loved it.

t - Tastes of sour red grapes, cherries, and other sour dark fruits, brett, light funk, oak, spice, vanilla. Not quite as sour as the nose, but still very nice.

m - Light to medium body and moderate carbonation. Some nice acidic notes and super easy to drink; doesn't feel like it is 8% ABV at all.

o - Overall I thought this was a great beer. Not the sourest or funkiest beer in the world, but some really nice brett and sour dark fruits, and very easy to drink. Was very awesome to have this on tap at multiple places in DC, and had no problem having a few glasses in one night. Hope to see it again!
