750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy copper body. Big white head. Some lacing and a nice collar.

Smell - Lemony and yeasty. Some oak and acidity. Some faint unsweet caramel.

Taste - Lemon again and very yeasty. Oak and caramel, but not sweet. Pleasantly tart.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Light. Tart.

Overall - It's got that standard Sante Adairius yeast character that overwhelms any subtlety, but that yeast character is nice.

Reviewing batch 2 poured from a bottle into a HF stemmed glass.

Pours a dark, ice tea color with a light tan head that fades quickly leaving a nice ring, which in turns leaves a decent lacing.

Smells quite sour and acidic with oak and lemon.

While the taste follows the aroma, it doesn't quite meet the expectations that was set up by the nose. Slightly tart with a bit of caramel and yeast.

Feel is good. Brew has a good amount of carb and is quite dry.

Overall this is quite nice.

Poured from a 750ml capped bottle a very dark amber with crimson edges under a half-inch thick off-white head which fades to the rim leaving semi-rings and splotches of lace. Aroma is acetic, dark fruits and wet wood. Flavor is sour, grainy, fruity, tannic, with some mild yeasty funk. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Finishes crisp with an acetic/tannic snap.
