Deschutes' Green Monster. 7.3%. Aged 3 years in wine barrels.
Okay, I gotta say: The wax top makes for a good presentation, but it's a bitch to get off!
Appearance: Very small amount of head. Light, fine-bubbled lacing. Deep red-amber color.
Smell: Hmm. Very different than I was expecting. The first smell I get is a sort of pickle/olive brine, like what I would smell from my mom's potato salad. That's a first! Not getting any other scents, yet.
Taste/Moutfeel: Okay, I'm getting more of the olive brine on the palate, with some apple seed. Moderate acidity. Maybe some sour grape.
I gotta say, based on the reference I got from my coworker, this falls very short. Not my ideal for a sour at all. It is interesting, and unique, but not my thing. It's a shame, I was told this has a big green apple flavor, but I'm not getting any.
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle, into a Petrus chalice.

Out a of bottle at Haven in Orange, CA.
Mass props to the couple next to Raul (that is breaking up) for giving him a taste of their Green Monster. Thang is freaky; thang is freaky like Adel right out of the shower. Good levels of, well, everything. Not the best sour, but Raul can still feel it like Raul could.

A-Deep ruby red one finger off white head with some carbonation and some lacing.
S-Lots of wine, grapes and oak. Some funk.
T-Lots of wine, oak, some grapes, mild funk not much else though.
M-Medium in body, and a very dry finish.
O-Very wine like. It got a lot of charactersistics rom the barrels. But at the end of the day nothing else as far as flavors really come through.
