3.95/5 rDev -8.4%
On Tap at the Meddlesome Moth - 10/19/13
A: Amber and copper red with a small white head.
S: Very light and sweet. Smells a little of the "funk" do the wild bacteria, wood and cherries present as well.
T: Sour punch at the front, but it is not overpowering. Mellows at the end. Good woody taste throughout.
F:Very smooth, good amount of carbonation.
O: Very good beer, worth hunting down. Lives up to the standard that Real Ale's other oak aged ventures set.

Served in a tumbler.
Even with the large number of beers I've tried over the years, I think this is my first barrel-aged sour Scotch ale. Right on. This stuff pours a deep garnet topped by a half-finger or so of wan khaki foam. The nose comprises tart black cherry, light red wine vinegar, light Malbec grapes, a dash of oak, and a thin wisp of toffee. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a vein of mild vanilla, a hint of average whiskey in the background, and a few squeezes of sour black grapes. Things are dominated by the sour notes, but the underlying sweetness and maltiness remain steadfast in their second class existences. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly sticky finish. Overall, a damn fine sour, especially considering the original base. I'll echo others by saying this is kinda Flanders-ish, what with the balance of tart and not-so-, and it succeeds at making me smile.
