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

375mL corked and caged bottle pouredi nto a tulip. 5-17-13 bottled date.
(A)- Pours an orange-like red amber hued color; almost like clay tinted mud, but did produce a light layer of white froth.
(S)- An intense cherry and strawberry-like oaky acidity to this up front. Ever so slight dry funk to it, but otherwise a very inviting oaky fruited sourness.
(T)- What I like about it is how oak forward this is ; similar to a flanders in that sense. Subdued darker berry fruits but with that great funky yet sour oak barrel throughout.
(M)- A great carbonation level balances well with what is going on in the glass. Its sour, but balances well with the dry funk, oak, and subtle fruit levels.
(O)- A tasty sour, that I wish were easier to track down around my parts here in the Midwest. Big oak flavors that mesh well with the acidic sourness and fruit.
