750 from the recent batch, into a tulip.

A: Pours an opaque blackish brown with a huge light tan head.

S: Leathery, bacterial, wet hay and cobwebs, mild plum-like acetic tartness, some caramel and toasted grain. Smells like an infected barleywine.

T: Taste brings a dominating earthy, acrid bitterness, charred grain, musty, light tartness.

M: Medium-bodied with frothy carbonation.

O: Wow, this is one of the worst beers I've had in a long time. Charry, bacterial, over-carbonated, acrid. No redeeming qualities. Do not buy.

2013 vintage. Terribly infected, and not in the "we meant to do that" way. My drain pipes didn't even like this.

A: Holy crap, calm down, foam central on pour. Deep brown with a tan head, way to much head.

S: Light band aid and whiskey with a whiff of grapes? sourness, yes

T: Big band aid, fruits, wow, booze, bourbon, sourness lingering

M: Over carbonated, it left me belching like crazy after the few sips I choked down. Tart, unappealing and uninspiring.

O: What a disappointment! Drain pour.

2.43/5  rDev -32.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Appearance: Pours a murky brown with ruby hints around the edges. A full 3" of off white head forms.. Very good retention and lacing. Great head characteristics but ugly color.

Smell: Brown malt base, tart cherries, general funk. Not real expressive here.

Taste: Brown malt base and tart cherries up front. Mid palate and on the back end is highlighted by a weird lingering sour. Super weird. Bitter like ear wax.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation, about right. Weird finish and aftertaste retracts. Overall, not good. Favors are way off for the style. Did not enjoy this one.

look: 3 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours with an excessive amount of head, got about a c'mon beer and the rest was a foam over. After things settle down, a thin brown beer presents itself with some lacing. The nose is Brett forward with that funky, lemon, earthy, herbal quality. This sits atop some brown malt and some booze. Nose smells like it lacks cohesion and has notes all over the place. Taste is brett forward which provides a healthy dose of funk to the flavor. Next comes some malty sweetness followed by some roast. There also happens to be some herbal Hop character which is paired with some non description booziness. Mouthfeel is thin and prickly. This beer leaves me confused. It's like a hoppy brown ale, barrel aged, then dosed with rest. Nothing adds up here and it makes for a very sloppy final product. This is a disappointment, especially considering this comes from two great breweries. Pass this at all costs.

2.63/5  rDev -26.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Ruddy/murky dark copper brown. Head is tan, bubbly, and sticky. Forms a massive bubbly head that drops to a small cap and collar. Chunky lacing. Relatively high carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Sweet leather and dark cherry. Faint hints of vanilla and barrel. Some underlying funk adds a damp earthiness to everything. Some minor bourbon. Slightly sweet malt base with some herbal notes. Slight touch of cherry in the mix. Acetic as it warms with a bit of lactic finish.

Taste: Powdery and slightly spicy yeast. Very faint bourbon with some cherry flesh. Leather and seltzer water. A hint of caramel malt and spicy esters. Earthy and damp with a distinctly dirty finish. Mildly acetic with a slight citric finish. Cellar damp and musty. No depth, finishes super clean and fast.

Mouthfeel: Moderate to high carbonation. Mediumish light body. Clean and bubbly with a mild astringency.

Overall: Hidden in plain sight.

Earthy seltzer water with a slight tart funk. Mediocre.
