The aroma offers sweet barrel character, honey, caramel, hints of tart lemon, a bit of limoncello.

The flavor follows with a balance of honey sweetness, tart dried lemon, a blend of barrel character with the vinous quality and some sweet port, onto lingering tart and alcohol.

Really muddled and murky amber appearance. Aroma was rank spoiled wine. Not happy so far.

Taste dropped more wood and what I suspect may have been an infection. Synthetic plastic like phenols. Just wasn't a fan of this one.

Thanks to GRG1313 for gifting me this one.

Bottled 5/6/10.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with grain, wine, wood, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet and sour grain and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is super sour and tasty.
