Maybe this will grow on me but initial impression is too tart and acidic. I prefer a duchess de bourgeouene or however TF its spelled. I guess I'm a sour rookie.

Drank several months ago, but review was live at time of consumption.

A: Very dark red, almost brown (although it is quite dark in here). 1 fingers width of tan lacing with decent retention and tons of lacing. 4.75

S: Sweet, lots of oak, caramel malts, subtle tart. Nice aroma but not huge. 4.25

T: Taste is truly lovely. Tons of dark fruit, nice balancing tartness, oaky. Fantastic mix of sour and sweet dark fruits. Some caramel sweetness. Fantastic. 4.75

M/D: Medium body, carbonation appropriate, ABV exceptionally well masked with excellent drinkability. 5

O: Wonderful beer. Exceptionally done. 4.75

Enjoyed after a nice rest in the cellar. Complex melange of aromas and taste - sour mash, oak, vinous grapes, dark fruit, puckering green apple and candied fruit.

Fruit acids, wine tannins, oak, bourbon starches and sugars - pleasantly tart and incredibly smooth. Hints of a well made manhattan.

No heat or zap from the ABV. Easy to drink and enjoy; nowhere near enamel stripping or harsh. A true beauty.

Dark brown with an amber tinge when held to the light, topped with 4 fingers of orangey beige head.

Smells sour of balsamic vinegar, funk, earthy, heather, leather, and slightly fruity of cherries and dates.

Sour smoothness. Sour of lemons, balsamic vinegar, lightened by an absent or phantom sweetness, cherries, funk, cellar, leather and peat.

Medium, acidic and dry body with a smooth, foamy, and light feel to it.

2015 Project. Got in Rochester, NY, drinking in New Hamburg, ON, July 28th, 2018. Excellent for the style!

Deep brown in color with a very murky complexion. There's a fingernail of beige around the rim. I'm smelling tart cherries, either Merlot or Cabernet, and just a suggestion of the sweet bourbon. I'm tasting massively tart cherries, Merlot, and a touch of bourbon. The mouth is very viscous and smooth, which is very unique for a wild ale.
