Batch 002- corked & caged bottle 375ml- 6.00% Alc. by. vol.
Clear yellow, with a fizzy white head.
Aromas of funk, sour green apple, lemon zest & tart horse stables
Holy sour...serious pucker on my 1st sip. Felt it in both sides of my jaw. Super sour...green apple explosion. Right on the tip of the tongue...funk felt in the back. Glands are now salivating...very acidic. Head has now dissolved, leaving no evidence.
As the beer warmed, the sour-tart-funk was less explosive, but still very present. Oaky tartness with a dash of brett in the mouthfeel.
Oak felt in the finish...very unassuming. Dry, lemony, sour tart sparkling wine also felt in the finish.
I did not know what to expect with this one. For a beer aged 9-19 months in oak, very surprised that oak didn't dominate the flavor.

Poured from a 375ml bottle into a tulip glass. Batch #6
A- Pours a deep chardonnay golden yellow color. Has a very high wine like clarity. Small fizzy head that dissipated quickly.
S- Lots of sour apple, some vinegar, some light vanilla, good amount of oak. some white wine character in there.
T- Similar to aroma but amplified to an insane degree. Lots of tart lemon, sour apple, and vinegar. Finishes with a dry yeasty note. Has that old barn cellar thing that sours usually have.
M- Medium-light the flavor makes this a sipper.
O- This is one of the most sour beers I've had and if you're looking for something that delivers in the pucker department seek this one out. It is also somewhat too sour for me in my tastes. It's missing a bit of the subtlety that I got from Supplication. Still an amazing beer and if you want to test the limits of sour seek it out.
