Appearance -Very nice murky golden orange, essentially zero head.

Smell - Funky fermenting fruit, acid, minimal booze

Taste - very tasty hint of plums unfortunately a bit overshadowed by the brett. I like brett but the strength of this beer I think is in the fruit so it would have been nice if this came out a bit more more. A bit more boozy flavor than many sours at 6.2%.

Mouthfeel - Appropriate level of carbonation, thinner mouthfeel typical of sours.

Overall - I love sours so I always love to find a new and unique one. Will buy again.

Hazy plum color with off-white that goes away completely. Aroma has intense fruits. Plums, fermenting apples, apricots along with a musty cellar note. Taste follows with fermented fruits, mustiness, hay, barnyard funk. Body is on the light side, very dry with low carbonation. Really rustic sour ale with intense natural fruit character.

Ordered on the bartender's recommendation at Bir & Fud in Rome. A relatively clean sour, with a balance of sweet caramel malt and the acidic plum. Overall, well made but not as deep or complex as a great sour.

2011 bottling. This is a remarkably under rated beer in my opinion, although perhaps this site should have it broken down in vintages as are designated on the bottles. Pours a crimson read with little head and a real Italian cookie flavor concentrated cherry nose and flavor profile. The body is medium and perfectly balanced. This is a sweet yet complex and layered beer the likes of which one may not ever have tasted. It is delicious all around.
