Poured into a New Belgium Tulip.
A - Pours a crystal clear Mahogany with a very small off white head that vanishes into a fine ring that follows the glass down.
S - I am getting some Brett funk, leather, barnyard, some dark fruit, figs, plum, and a touch of oak.
T - Sour, Tart, Puckering Tart, oakey, and fruity in that order. Sourness starts off on first sip, followed by a nice tartness that increases until it puckers you. Then some of the oak is shining through followed by the dark fruit. Simply amazing. An incredible showcase of flavors.
M - On firt glance your thinking full bodied, but this is really light on the tounge. Very deceiving on carbonation. The sourness makes you feel like it has alot of carbonic bite, when in reality it is very lightly carbed.
O - This is the best sour I have ever had. The complexity is overwhelming. This is so masterfully crafted that it rivals the finest Bordeaux blends. This should be on every beer lovers bucket list.

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.
