Decent wild with some sourness. A gateway sour? Aged a bit, so this bottle less palate erasing. OK drinkability. Second rate sour in any case. Brian's bottle.

Bottle: Poured a deep reddish color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of tart notes with some oak and light cherry flavours and vinous notes that are also perceptible. Taste is a nice mix of tart notes with some cherry and oak flavours with a vinous finish. Acidity is well balanced. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not as complex as I was expecting but well balanced with some goods drinkability.

Poured from 750ml into goblet at Hen of the Wood in Burlington VT, paired with fresh shucked oysters.
A - Lightly clouded, deep straw and wonderful carbonation.
S - Barrel comes through, straw, orange and grainy, some sharpness in the nose.
T - Wheat, light oak, white wine and green grape. Sharp and a touch of salinity.
F - Wonderful, light, carbonation is delightful.
O - A treat and a fine match to our food.
Worth seeking out.

Nose is nice, giving off light stone fruits, Brett and some oak. All well blended into a uniform scent. Like the nose, the taste is actually rather understated. Sour with oak flavours and the same apricot-like flavours, with a vinous finish. Slightly astringent. The red wine barrel does not come through strongly, just a bit at the end. Easy drinking and subtle for the genre.

Pours a deep old gold with white head.

Nose is quite reminiscent of a gueuze, with some citrus, funk, cooked apples, sesame seeds. Really nice.

Taste is evocative of stone fruits, apple, apricot, with some brett characters and a nice acidity. The overall balance is really nice with a crisp, fresh finish that is somewhat similar to many Hill Farmstead tart farmhouse ales, without the stronger lemony feel.

Maybe one of the best "brassin sp├ęcial" releases from TDD, since it's highly drinkable and refreshing while also being complex, as many others are delicious but a bit heavier/sweeter. Quite impressive, with the nose evocative of a lambic, and the mouth of a tart HF saison.
