2010 vintage. Batch 2. Best after 11/01/11. Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Deschutes snifter glass. Acquired in a trade from nedvalton, thank you sir!
A- Pours a hazy, muddy brownish- maroon body with a two finger white head that reduces slowly to a white ring of foam.
S- Smells of funky brett, tart lactic acid, sharp sour lemons, grass, caramel/toffee, dark cherries, white wine, grapes. So complex, aromatic, and inviting. I can't wait to sip this.
T- Wow.. this is amazing. The first thing you notice is the tart cherries/citrus notes. I wouldn't call this acidic.. I'd call it on the higher end of tart. The tartness combines with some funkyness coupled with a slight astringent hoppiness. The finish is sweet with some very nice vanilla, caramel, toffee, burnt toast, charred bready notes. Very complex.
M- Medium body, good drinkability, medium carbonation.
I've really been looking forward to trying this beer and it didn't disappoint! Super complex and balanced. Very well done, Deschutes. 4 years has done wonders.
