2013 Bottle – Oct 2015

A: Vinous aroma upfront, followed by some light grains, oak and funk.

A: Dark orange/amberish color, hazy with a thing ring of off-white head. Just a touch of lacing.

T: Sour vinous flavor, mixed with stone fruits, along with some oak presence.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A bit of alcholic warmth detected. The beer has a slightly sharp acidity and a dry finish.

O: Solid, the beer has an interesting aroma and a nice full flavor. However, it’s a little boozy and the acidity is a bit sharp.

Copper-amber colour, ring of off white head, some lace. Smell is full of oak, light char and caramel, acidity as well as a bit of berry and brett also. Taste is both sweet and acidic, oak and woody flavours, a little bit of alcohol, some dark fruit, caramel and cherry. Nice mouthfeel, medium carbonation with a medium-full body. A good beer, certainly worth trying but not something that stands out as excellent to me.

The alcohol is palpable in this one. A lot of heat, obscuring some of the other flavours. Sour, oak, stone fruits. A slightly bitter finish. Nice flavours but the alcohol really gets in the way.
