Pours a dark chestnut brown color with a one finger beige head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Minimal spots of lace left behind.

Slightly earthy aroma with some earthy oak, vinous fruit, vinegar and acetone. Some dark malt, caramel and toffee along with hints of raisin, fig and solvent.

On the lighter end of medium bodied with a harsh acetone character that dominates the flavor, overpowering almost everything else. Very harsh vinegar-y solvent character that's tart and puckering but not pleasant or flavorful. Subtle oak and vinous fruit underneath but it's hard to pick up anything because of the overwhelming acetic character.

A- pours a murky brown with a tan head.

S- smells of sweet Belgian malt with a note of raisin. Light tartness in the nose with an acidic character.

T- much tarter on the palate. Cranberry and leathery with a nice earth and basalmic center. Malt comes out on the finish with a toasty bread and a lingering acid.

MF- smooth prickly mouthfeel with a medium body. Little lower than average carbonation.

D- good drinkability.

On tap at The Lion's Pride.
Came to the table a slightly hazy brown with a thin tan head that slowly dissipates to a ring. Smells of oak, vanilla, caramel, and ethanol with a hint of tart. The flavor is not what I expected based on the nose with a heavy tart cherry and lemon thing with caramel edges going on. Light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a tart almost chalky mouthfeel. This was not my favorite is all tart and a little funk with no balance.

On tap at Max's during their annual Belgian fest.

The beer pours a reddish dark amber color with minimal head retention and pretty much no lacing. To be honest, the beer looks as if it's completely flat, though once I tasted it, that proved not to be the case. On the nose I get wine and sour, with the sour component clearly dominating. The flavor profile replicates the nose, with the beer showing light carbonation. There is considerable flavor in this medium bodied beer, and I suppose if you are a sour lover you will be happy with this one. Alchol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and the beer is not at all boozy (which is no surprise given the abv.).

Mehhhh... this just isn't working for me. The beer is too one dimensional, and that one dimension is largely sour. I guess it's OK, but at least for me, there just isn't enough else going on.

On tap at Holy Grale, served in a wine glass.

Murky crimson red with a small head that dissipates into nothing after maybe 30 seconds.

Raspberry, apple and cherry vinegar with more vinous notes of oak and vanilla. A little bit of sweet malt character and some airy, dry funk with a touch of alcohol.

Cherry, raspberry, and apple open up with a biting vinegar like sour. A little bit of a tannic quality to the beer as well, kinda oaky. Lots of gaps inbetween the initial fruitiness and finishing dry sour bite that leaves you wanting a bit more.

Medium body and kind of flat, with a dry biting pucker.

Good use of fruity vinegar qualities and the barrel but I would have enjoyed a bit more complexity. Not a bad beer by any means but I'm not sure if it's worth another visit.

I had this on-tap at Churchkey, poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a mostly clear reddish amber color with a mild amount of off white head that goes away quickly.

Smell: Fruity vinegar with some wine barrel and mild, sweet malt.

Taste: Very wine like. Sour vinegar with some woody barrel notes. There is a mild caramel like flavor in the background. The finish is sour and full of grapes.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a mild amount of carbonation and a buttery finish.

Overall: Honestly I thought this beer was a bit boring. I'm also not convinced it is listed under the correct category. Quite smooth, but I don't think I'll have another.
