Bottle generously shared by Jason. Served in a Captain Lawrence tulip.

A - Attractive two-fingered lightly tan foam settles to some wisps, a thin collar, and a few spots of lace. Hazy plum-colored body.

S - Slightly vegetal, with notes of barbeque sauce, copper, and wet oak. Somewhat understated.

T - Taste is initially quite bland, but finishes with copper and other metallic notes. No alcohol, and not much in the way of malt character either.

M - Medium-low carbonation, medium body, somewhat watery, with a dry finish.

D - This isn't very good. I almost wish it was offensively bad, rather than bland, as it'd give me more party conversation material. A very dull beer with an unpleasant finish. Literally tastes like a homebrewer's first attempt at a sour brown.

(From notes. Sorry about the paucity of detail)

Pours dull and lifeless. I'm glad BA has notched down the weight given to appearance scores, but I still can't give looks of this beer the score they actually deserve, because they would take the overall score down too far. Suffice it to say, it resembled puddle water, and not in some kind of weirdly appealing, "isn't that kinda neat" way.

Smells like oak and tart, zippy flanders business. Nodes of pressed fruit are very present, along with alcohol.

Tastes like it smells. Way lots of smooth brandy and vanilla against a medium-strength vinegary sourness with some nice herbs backing everything up. The flavor is light when compared to most other FFF BA's, but it's super duper tasty.

Not very sour but balanced. Some slight off flavors.
