On tap at Dexter's today, 5/9/2014.

Beer #900, review #591.

A- Very ugly dark brown-red body. Particularly large two finger white head with very good retention and some lacing. But the colour of the body is just very unappealing.

S- Tart plum, dark fruit, vinegar, tartness, oak, subtle vinous qualities

F- Sweet plum juice complimented by vinegar (7/10 sour), small bit of lactate, tart table grapes, oak, red wine barrel is subtle but is most obvious in the dry, tannic finish.

M- Medium bodied, well carbonated, easy to drink and definitely refreshing.

O- A nice treat, I enjoyed this more than I did Exodus. The plums do very well in adding a fruit flavour and tartness without going overboard with on the sweet end. This is plenty sour and the red wine barrels add a noticeable vinous dryness to the finish. I just can't get over how unappealing the beer looks, though- get a pour of this and you'll know what I mean.

Draft in a snifter, quick review from notes.

Pours a murky reddish brown color, thin skims cross the surface that left behind some sparse spotty lacing in the glass.

Smells just like La Folie to me, grapes and a slight maltiness with a light vinegar sharpness.

Taste was a bit of a letdown, oxidized malt in the middle and aftertaste, initial fruit tartness like an underripe green plum I guess. Lightly sour, medium bodied. We opted to share this one and move on, not really worth a second glass. Exodus is so much better, not sure what happened here.

5th at the Taste Eve. Hazy body. Sour aroma. Wow, very sour, but pretty good. Taste is almost all sour with a mild taste of sweet plum.
