Bottle from Private Order Group. An Oude Red tasting beer through the addition of brett. Reddish coloured body, lacey. Medium mouthfeel. Sour aroma and moderate sour taste Decent drinking, one of their better ones. Not a palate eraser yet enjoyable as a wine.

Greener Futures bottle, 600ml into a tulip. Blend of barrel aged Strong Patrick (aged for 9 months) and Festivale (aged for 5 months).

Reddish brown, with a cream coloured head. Mild lacing and only a film of retention. Nose has dark cherries, light acetic character, and bit bready and general dark fruit notes. Loses any notion of being a real sour ale when this hits the palate, although there's still some malt, very mild tartness and a bunch of berry character. Moderate malt sweetness. Medium body, and unfortunately not as tart or complex as I'd like it to be. Pretty good nonetheless.

Maybe retired from bottling but it on tap at The Commons in Winnipeg as if date of this review. They say it might just get released around St. Patrick's.

Looks great with a copper appearance and strong tan head that laces and layers nice and a light berry scent that compliments how it looks. Tatstes good but maybe lets down after the visual and smell expectations. Light malt and acidic taste. Alcohol catches at the end. Subdued fruitiness.

Overall a good Red and nice beer I'd have again.
