4.3/5 rDev -4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Served from a 375ml C&C bottle into a Hill Farmstead stemmed Tulip.
Appearance- Dark mahogany/tawny with quick half finger off white head that left a nice ring around the top.
Smell- Big. Definantly some currant up front mixed with the red wine barrel. Tart plums and oak with mild funk. Malt forward smell. Rich with dark fruits abound.
Taste- Plums, currants, cherries, oak. Sweet and malty with light snap of tartness that fades into straight currants and cherries. Great lingering tastes. Very rich and full. Very light booze taste.
Mouthfeel- Well carbonated with medium thickness. Very full feeling. Light tartness, not enough to make a face pucker.
Overall- Very nice barrel aged fruit forward wild. Reminiscent of Crooked Stave's sour quad. A good candidate for sharing with another person.

4.46/5 rDev -0.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Bottle poured into a Daredevil tulip glass.
A: Pours a murky brown with well over a finger of airy white head that disappears quickly and leaves only a thin collar. The viscosity does not look like any 10% beer I've ever had before! this looks much thinner and watered down.
S: A strong aroma of funk hits up front, and really takes control throughout. I get more wine notes from this than I do currants - and this is probably for the better.
T: Early in the glass the funk and sour is very dominant. Once my taste buds adjust, the dark fruits and wine shine through.
M: High level of carb, leaves a bitter dry finish.
O: This is such a well crafted beer, I enjoyed every aspect of it from first to last sip. When the sour starts to give way to flavor, it's amazing how everything comes together so well.
