3.83/5 rDev -8.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Blend 2 - bottled 3-8-2011.
Pours like a Diet Coke, a deep hazy ruby chestnut, almost purple at times, topped by a thin head of foam that dies down to a thin collar circling small islands of foam.
The aroma is pure sour funk with notes of caramel and apple cider vinegar.
The taste is sour caramel cherries. Dry oaky finish with rubber gym balls lingering in the aftertaste. Tart without being sour, but it's enough to keep the caramel and light cocoa notes in check. Somewhat vinous/vinegary.
Light body with light carbonation.
Pretty decent overall.

750 ml bottle poured into a Russian River stemmed glass
Blend 1, Bittled 2.27.2013
A: A beautiful clear copper color with a slight white film of a head with no lacing or head retention. No cloudiness and many rising bubbles from the base of the glass.
S: Huge dark fruit nose with a delicious lactic sourness character on the nose. Oak mixed with Brett funk makes for an extremely complex and delicious smelling brew. Aroma is also almost wine or grape like. Wow, can't wait to try this baby.
T: great balance of tartness and fruit character along with a medium carbonation that makes for a very interesting beer. A very nice Brett character that works perfectly with the oak character. The two flavors of Brett and oak work graceously in this beer, amazing.
M: The beer is a little thin and medium to high carbonation makes a decent attempt at trying to add some body but still thin. However, this is a very interesting and delusions brew. The light tartness helps tremendously in adding mouthfeel.
O: I waited long to try this brew since it was too rich for my blood,but finally pulled the trigger when some spare cash came along and all I can say is it was worth every penny.
It's a very complex brew with a gentle friendly tartness with great fruit/dark frui character. It's a very drinkable beer but I would never dare to chug as it is des served to be sipped and savored. Great brew and reminds me why Ron Jefferies is the Man!
