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.

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.
