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

Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into duvel glas

A: pours a dark brown with a hint of ruby and a finger of fluffy lightly brown head that dissapates quickly, a few spots of lacing.

S: brown Malts and funk, light hint of oak, a touch of red wine vingar, for some reason, the way the funk and everything combine I get an almost light nail polish remover aroma, which I do not find very pleasing.

T: much like the nose brown malts along with some funk a vingar notes that add as light cherry like hint... Not a bad tasting beer, a lttlle bit of toasted grain.

M: very light, and not overly sour at all, just a little bit of tartness, clean finish.

O: its tasty, deffinatly not bad, but nothing to get overly excited for, the real turn off for me was the fact I was reminded of nail polish in the aroma.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Dark tanish brown with a 1 inch creamy tan head, lots of sticky lacing.

Smell - Sour fruits, grapes, tarts, grapefruit, malts, sweet yeasts. Some oak and grain.

Taste - Much like the smell, sour yeasty brown ale with some malt and oak backbone. Much of the sour is compairable to sour apples, grapes, plum and rasin. The oak adds a bourbon, woody flavor, and more sour.

Mouthfeel - Tounge gets nailed with sour and yeasts. After mouth adjusts to the sour, more malts, sugars and yeasts come out. The finish is dry, and aftertaste is very tart.

Overall - Pretty good example of the style. Sour but not overly sour. Nice mix of oak and malts with the sour fruits and sweet yeasts. Low alcohol, good starter into the world of sours and oaked beers.

3.73/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

P:  Deep dark amber body with thin silky khaki head that fades quick and settles to a bubbly swirl.  

S:  Dark fruit, musty basement yeast, roasted grains, aged oak, spices and a subtle lactic acid tartness. 

T/M:  The taste follows the nose with a delicate sweet tart background, aged oak, semi sweet molasses, smoldered grains, b-vitamins and earthy hops. Mouthfeel is light-medium with just a touch of bubbles. Finish is dry with lingering fruit and vitamin notes. 

O:  Roasty and rustic that delivers delicate sweet and tartness. I liked this due to the aged and earthy flavors that brings the mixture into a more controlled state.
