4.65/5 rDev +8.1%
A: Slightly hazy but mostly transparent dark tea-colored body. A short white head fades down to a sliver. Patchwork of lacing.
S: Sour smelling grapes, tree bark, a little bit of alcohol comes through, and a funky musky scent.
T: It starts out with a sour tart flavor that has a bit of cherry and grape-like flavors. It fades out quickly and there is an earthy quality that starts to take over. It seems like I get a bit of hop flavor in there as well. At the end it has a bit of smoky or charcoal quality that is very faint. Some caramel sweetness in the end that counterbalances the sourness. Some musky flavor at the end.
M: The mouthfeel starts off with a puckering sensation, but it trails off very quickly to a mellow presence. It's very pleasant to drink because it doesn't stay tart through the whole sip. It is lightly carbonated, and has a medium mouthfeel.
O: Overall I really enjoyed this beer. I would recommend it and would buy it again. I think that everything I have to say was said before. I really don't have any negatives for the beer. It is a very impressive beer.

Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing last weekend. 375ml corked and caged.
A: Pours a hazy light orangish-copper with a thin white head which fades quickly to the rim leaving just a few spots.
N: Tannic and basalmic sting with vinous and cherry fruit notes.
T: Prickly sour and tart with some funk and tannins and a mixture of fruits including grapes and cherries.
M: Medium body and light carbonation. Oaky and tart finish.
O: Would like to have more. Enjoyed the barrel aging here.

Poured from the bottle into a goblet.
The beer pours a cloudy dark reddish amber color with a finger of fluffy off white head. The head sticks around quite nicely. The smell is quite sour and funky with a nice fruity sweet note to it. The taste isn't as intensely sour as I expected from the smell. I'm getting an herbal funk along with a mild oaky note. The taste has a touch of herbal sweetness to it along with a very tart finish. The carbonation is very smooth with small bubbles. The finish isn't as dry as I thought it would be.
