4.25/5  rDev -5.1%

prune colored ale with little head, aromas of brett and bread.. taste is all funk moderated by sweet flavors of currents and red wine... Awesome sour flavor with depth and concentration... mouth puckering! Another RR sour winner...

Bottled on 2/11/14. Opened on 8/15/14

A - Amber red with a tiny bit of clarity, a touch of head.

A - Oak from the barrel, wine, cherries

T - Strong ale, with an oaky wine barrel flavor. It does not get any better than this

M - Medium body, oily slick

O - Incredible beer! One of my favorites of all time

Won't add much that hasn't already been touched upon, but...

Bottled 2014-02-11. Poured on 2014-08-13. Delicious as could be. Not sure what this is like super fresh or with another 5-6 months to put it at a year old, but right now it's uber-tasty. Wish I could come across more in an easier fashion and I cannot wait to try again and try it's brother/sisters (Supp, temp, Beat, etc.).
