A - pours a hazy muddied light amber. Small white head that dissipated quickly, decent thick lacing hangs around the glass

S - lots of sour funkyness, smells great. Earthy subtleness

T - decent dry earthy bitter sour cherry flavors up front, the sourness lingers. Smells more tart/sour then it is

M - lighter bodied, slightly watery feeling. Good carbonation. Incredibly refreshing

O - tasty but not quite as fantastic as I expected

Bottled June 2012

Big oak, sour cherries, and funk aromas.

Huge oakiness, slightly sweet, some dark fruits, and funk, Brett.

Very nice, love the aroma.

Got this as an extra in a trade with [I think] DoubleSunshine. Thanks!
Shared with a few folks at a recent tasting.

Medium amber color, with a foamy white head that left some lacing on the glass. In the nose, some bready malts and yeasty funk, slightly vinous. Taste of sweet bready malts, light fruity essence, grape and mild cherry, leather and earth, brett imparting a little funk. Body was about medium, carbonation was moderate. A good melding of flavors, yet nothing intense going on. Kind of walked the edge of a few different styles here, but overall it was an enjoyable brew.

Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.

The beer pours a cloudy reddish amber color with a layer of off white head that fades away rather quickly. The nose is full of funky brett with a mild wine note. The taste is quite funky and full of brett, but this beer is hardly sour at all. I'm getting some wine and lots of oak. The finish is really dry. I really enjoyed the oaky notes and thought the wine was a nice touch.

Pours a super hazy toffee color with a pretty thick off white head.

Smells of brett, vinous white wine character/grape.

Taste is big brett, some mildly sweet honey or flower character, white grape and other light fruit.

Lots of carbonation, nice full mouthfeel.

Really solid bretty sour, not super acidic, good balance of sweet backbone and brett funk.

8.0/10

This poured out looking like a reddish color, The head was white, it had a thin retention and no lacing. The smell of the beer was earthy and not very sour on the nose. I expected it to be much stronger. The taste of the beer was decent, mostly has the grainy malt base with a very subtle barrel aged flavor in there. The mouthfeel of the beer was smooth, very drinkable, dry in the finish. Overall this beer was decent, I wasn't really getting into this one too much. It was good but not great.

Reviewed from notes. Growler from Charleston Beer Exchange just after the 4th of July. Amber with tan head. Dry earthy funk and mild leather. Some citrus peel. Flavor is very dry and leathery. Nice integration. Slightly bitter.
