A: Orangy amber, soda like carbonation opaque, basically no head, no visible rising carbonation
S: Tomato juice, rhubarb with an odd sort of japanese peach candy pungentness.
T: Not too different from how it smells. Very odd. A rotting fruit sourness. Better as it warms up.
M: Drying but not so pleasant in conjunction with the flavor
O: This is a very odd beer. not one I'd recommend.

On tap at Ashley's in Ann Arbor 8/31/2015

Appearance: mellow gold with a think, bubbly head which dissipates very slowly, still there at the end


Aroma: vinegar, tomatoes, citrus, cloves - intriguing

Taste: tomatoes, oranges, lemons

Mouthfeel: creamier than expected as it looks like it could be thin, stays throughout

Overall: surprising and unique, excellent mouthfeel and strong finish. The vinegary, tomato-like notes may put some off

Very strange beer. Vinegar, oak, and spice aroma. Different tastes on every part of the tongue. Salty and sour on one side sweeter and spicier on the other. It does have a light body with mild carbonation. Wouldn't choose to drink it again

330 ml bottle into tulip glass; batch #10, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart/sour lemon, lime, cherry, berry, peach, apricot, pineapple, pear, green apple, mango, melon, red wine, toasted oak, vanilla, peppercorn, citrus peel, hay, straw, grass, herbs, leathery/musty funk, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light red wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic/spicy yeast, spices, wine barrels, and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/sour lemon, lime, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon, lime, cherry, berry, peach, apricot, pineapple, pear, green apple, mango, melon, red wine, toasted oak, vanilla, peppercorn, citrus peel, hay, straw, grass, herbs, leathery/musty funk, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light red wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Moderate lactic tartness and yeast/wine/oak tannin spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/sour lemon, lime, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon, lime, cherry, berry, peach, apricot, pineapple, pear, green apple, mango, melon, red wine, toasted oak, vanilla, peppercorn, citrus peel, hay, straw, grass, herbs, leathery/musty funk, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light red wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic/spicy yeast, spices, wine barrels, and moderate bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tart/spiciness balance, and zero puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from tartness/spiciness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately bready/grainy/acidic/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 8.5%. Overall this is an awesome sour/wild tripel style! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic/spicy yeast, spices, wine barrels, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV, with the modestly spicy/lactic/tannic/drying finish. Really outstanding and well developed Brett/Lacto complexity, awesome red wine barrel presence, and balancing bready malt backbone. A really enjoyable offering.

Murky, golden. Small-ish head. Fruity yet Bretty smell. Smells like it will be sour. That said, it's dry but not very acidic. Purty good, but wish that it was a little "cleaner" and more refined, with less of a homebrew vibe.
