Cool mix of colors, brown, purple, red. Mild tan head in the quarter of an inch range. Aroma was a little acetic, brown wood, dark tropical fruit.

A headier fruit presence than the acidifie version of this beer. For the better. Cedar gives it a dry mouthfeel allowing the fruit to shine better. Pretty sour stuff. Well done. Unique, those darker tropical fruits and cedar are a nice touch, for some reason, smacks of Jester King just as much as Cigar City.

A - Pours a mahogany red body with a fizzy light tan head that dissipates as quickly as it developed.

S - Sweet fruits (guava & dates) and light oak. Light tartness on the backend. Not really complex. I'm not sure if age has dulled it or if it was this way when fresh.

T - Still a good amount of guava in this. The dates lend a hand with the sugar aspect. Oak and caramel peak through. Has some tartness on the finish.

F - Light bodied and medium carbonation. The abv did not make itself known.

O - Still holding on, but probably fading a bit with age. Still very enjoyable.

Bottle from the brewery.
I've been sitting on this one for a little while and since company came over I thought this would be the perfect beer to shock some people! I guess the first shocker was the self pouring bottle. She opens with a huge hiss and foams violently for a few seconds until the pressures equalize. Pours a slightly cloudy reddish brown color with a huge bubbly tan head that piles it high but recedes almost instantly. Initially I got lots of banana and tropical fruit but that seemed to quickly give way to more of a lemon and tart cherry thing on the nose. Earthy funk with a touch of yeastiness and wood round out the nose. The flavor still holds a bit of sweet brown sugary malt which is a bit surprising! The funky earthiness is more prevalent in the flavor and mixes well with the dates which add a bit of sweetness. Light tart tropical fruit with just a touch of wood and alcohol round everything out. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet tart lightly tongue pricking mouthfeel. Hugely interesting beer, that most of my guests couldn't stomach. A little sweet for a sour, but I really enjoyed this beer.
