Bottle purchased from France 44 via mail order.

Pours a hazy bright ruby red color with a slightly off-white head that leaves decent lacing.

Smells of bright raspberry and strawberries with medium malts underlying everything. Also present are very slight hints of vanilla and funk.

Tastes similar to how it smells, though not as crisp. Slightly dry medium malts up front are joined quickly by slight tart raspberry flavors. Midway through small amounts of vanilla and funk come into play, fading out into a crisp ending. Mouthfeel is good, with active carbonation.

Overall this was a solid beer, although the fruit flavors didn’t come through quite as strong as the nose intimated. Still, worth a shot.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured a clean orange/amber with a thick and creamy long lasting tan head, good carbonation running throughout the beer for a good long while.

The nose is very tart and a bit cidery, lightly sweet with some touches of tropical fruit mixing in with the funky bretty charachter.

The flavor is mildy sweet with a bit of apple and pear and a touch of white cheese, finishes with a dry tart funky basement quality, has just a bit of sourness at the very end.

The mouthfeel is creamy with a dry finish.

Very nice wild ale, nice combination of fruit notes and sour qualities.

Two Brothers Askew. No bottle dating. Acquired in the summer of 2012. 12.7oz bottle split into Duchesse de Bourgogne goblets.

Pours a lovely color. It's like a sepiated rose or a pinkish cider. Some yeasty haze found its way into the beer at the end of my pour, but most was choked back. Hardly any head formed, and nothing but a very thin ring remains. This beer is simply pretty.

Super sour nose for a Flanders-style wild ale. Big imploding funk-rot from the combination of Saccharo- and Brettanomyces. Brightly woody. Sour fruit aromas include strawberry and apple. Maybe a bit of raspberry.

Big smack of fruit sour with a yield of green strawberry, unripe raspberry, and tart apple. Woody, vinegary, and decently funky. Tastes like a soured and unsweetened currant jam. I love the berry notes. This is a well-defined sour, if I may say so.

There is a hot sour burn in the throat that is an aspect to struggle through, drinkibility-wise. Otherwise, the body is pretty average for the style. Carbonation is medium.

Askew is a bright and wonderful sour ale. My girlfriend really took to it, as well. Time to seek out another bottle. Recommended.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours surprisingly clear and orange, with a very small head. Smells like a pleasantly aged blend of oak, sour yeast, and fruit. Nothing too horribly complex or astounding, but a nice, solid blend.

Tastes about how it smells. Good fruit complexities balanced out well by the yeast--not punishingly sour, but still not so dulled that it seems like a cop out. There's a very nicely dulled, almost chocolately end to the sour, and this falls in to a really nice, yeasty finish.

Imma fucking with the rating system here, because this isn't quite as good as a 4.5 flavor so I'm saying it's 4.5 overall. Not quite, but still good.
