Consumed @ Monks Cafe
A- pours a hazy dark copper color with a two-finger foamy white head that retains nicely, leaving some short lasting lace behind
S- lots of oaky vanilla up front meshes with tart white grape aroma, with notes of peach, grannysmith apple, and lemon. Yeasty funk gives out notes of hay, basement must and woodsy aroma
T- puckering tartness up front with flavors of white grape, sour apple, peach and wild dark grape. The yeast provide an earthy tone with some musty notes. Oaky barrel gives a subtle vanilla flavor and finishes dry with more linger of wild dark grape. Oak continues to linger on the palate
M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a smooth and silky , bone dry finish
O- really liked this, there was a common component with their Broken Elevator that gave it a wild grape sourness that I loved. The only thing that kept the flavor from being perfect, is that is falls off pretty quick, leaving only a bit of oak on the palate. Overall very well done

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Poured in nearly pitch black conditions, but it's an amber body. Clear. Almost no head.
Smell - Bourbon and wine barrels smell great. Bretty. Some acidity. Cherry and caramel malt.
Taste - Very similar to the smell. More caramel. Cherry fruits. Musty brett. Vanilla and oak. Not all that sour, but it's kinda acetic in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe medium heavy. Minimal sourness. Well carbonated.
Overall - Complex barrel character. Reminiscent of a Cascade.
